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.
