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


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. Or you can book your to/from transportation using Ridebooker.

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!


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

Ridebooker To guarantee seats, you must book AT LEAST 72 HOURS PRIOR TO TRAVEL

Camping at our basecamp is provided for each racer from the evening of Day 0 until the morning of Day 8. Before and after these dates, racers need to provide their own accommodations.  Our large (4-person sized) tents are comfortably shared between two racers.  If you decide to book a hotel during race week, we recommend purchasing a Shuttle Pass to get back and forth to base camp. Please note, not all hotels listed here are serviced by the shuttle pass program. See Upgrades page for hotels which are a part of the Shuttle Pass Program.
