The Legendary North Shore Will Host Stage 1 of the
2014 BC Bike Race
BC Bike Race the "Ultimate Singletrack
Experience" is excited to announce that North Vancouver, home
of the infamous North Shore trails, will host the opening stage for
Going into year eight BC Bike Race the "Ultimate
Singletrack Experience” will make a slight change to its route by hosting stage
one in North Vancouver. After three years away the trail conditions are right
to bring the event back.
The iconic ladder bridges of the North Shore are
some of the most recognizable trail features in adventure tourism today. Bike
Magazine recently recognized North Vancouver as "one of the most influential
bike destinations in the world”.
"The legendary North Shore has played a big part in
the development of the global mountain biking history and connecting the circle
route of this history from North Vancouver to Whistler just makes sense. " said
BC Bike Race president Dean Payne. "We want to offer our participants the ride
of their lives!”
The North Shore is changing, under the trail
stewardship of Mark Woods and the NSMBA (North Shore Mountain Bike Association)
the building style is new school with lots of ‘pump and flow’. This
has made the trail access much more universal and the riding experience
that much better.
Stage 2 will take place in Cumberland, stage 3 in
Powell River and from there the course will remain mostly the same as the
previous editions; the Sunshine Coast, Sechelt, stage 4 and 5, Squamish, stage
6 and Whistler the final day, stage 7.
BC Bike Race would like to thank Campbell River for
being an amazing partner over the last three years. Their excellent handcrafted
trails have provided thousands of riders from over 35 countries with a
mind-blowing singletrack experience.
BC Bike Race will continue into it’s 3rdyear with the Enduro special segments, 2 per day and the 4 Shimano kids races:
North Vancouver, Cumberland, Sechelt and Squamish. The new course in North
Vancouver will be announced in the early spring.
