Transportation & Accommodations

2018 Details

Transportation

We start in beautiful North Vancouver and end in the unforgettable town, Squamish. Your travel between these points during the race is included.

ARRIVING:

If you are flying in, please book your flights to the Vancouver International Airport (YVR), from YVR, you’ll be able to take a cab or public transit to North Vancouver.

TRAVEL PLANNING MADE EASY

We strongly recommend that you arrive with plenty of time to spare. The extra couple days to explore the trails, fix up your bike, and sort out your gear will pay off during race week!

DEPARTING

You will want to schedule your outbound flight from YVR and book a shuttle or other transportation from Squamish to the airport.
