The BC Bike Race is a seven-day ex­plo­ration of some of Bri­tish Columbia’s finest trails, set in a stage-race for­mat. Each day, par­tic­i­pants race on a dif­fer­ent sec­tion of the prov­ince’s sin­gle­track. Each night, rac­ers set up camp near a dif­fer­ent town to rest up be­fore do­ing it again the next day. Rid­ers can sign up solo or in teams of two, start­ing and fin­ish­ing each stage to­gether. The ter­rain is tough but beau­ti­ful, with days spent fer­ry­ing to and rid­ing on Van­cou­ver Is­land, in Whistler, Squamish and along the Sun­shine Coast.
