Welcome to Northern British Columbia, the new frontier
of destination mountain biking.

Sharing the amazing variety of riding with my partner Anna and such a great group of folks. Too many trail highlights to name. But I did enjoy putting the Backdoor Trail in Smithers into my 'ridden' column....that was a gas! Thank you all for a great time!

I really enjoyed everyone, from the participants to the crew, to the guides, and the local communities. Top notch people all around. The diversity of the terrain and ride options gets a big thumbs up as well!

In early August, the days are long up North and our goal at BC Bike RIDE is to max out each day with as much fun as humanly possible, right until the last embers of the campfire burn out. Together, we will be a nomadic tribe of fun loving mountain bikers exploring the great Northern Corridor of Highway 16 – Prince George, Burns Lake, Smithers, and Terrace.
Geographically, Northern British Columbia is larger than California, yet there are more bears than people! The people are hearty, warm and adventurous. The bears… they are wild and they roam free. The mountain bikers you will meet are proud of their handcrafted trails and they are excited to introduce you to their stashes of prime singletrack that relatively few people have ever ridden.

What's the difference between BC Bike Race and BC Bike Ride?

At our RACE things are more structured. You are timed on a set course that everyone follows and drives the ambitious goal of becoming an official BC Bike Race Finisher. In any race, you typically would not ‘session’ a feature or re-ride a trail that you really liked – time is of the essence and you must keep going! But at BC BIKE RIDE, you have that freedom. It’s about exploring on your own terms and picking your own adventure each day. We get you there and show you the way, but YOU get to choose what and how much you want to ride. There will be recommended routes, detailed maps, local guides, and shuttles to get to the trails. XC, Epic, DH, Enduro, freeride, dirt jumping – in BC, we just call it all ‘mountain biking’. However you define your individual riding style, you will enjoy this adventure on your terms.
