It’s a tour of British Columbia’s West Coast – the trails, the towns, the lifestyle.Amazing singletrack, unforgettable locations, exceptional organization and management of multiple venues and experiences.

BC Bike Race is the brainchild of a passionate group of longtime mountain bike and adventure race professionals based on the West Coast of British Columbia. Our love for the spectacular terrain and phenomenal riding on the West Coast, coupled with a strong desire to share it with the World, spawned the concept of this epic stage race. Our undying enthusiasm, extensive experience and commitment to nothing less than success has brought it to life. Giving back to the communities and mountain biking in general is just naturally a part of us doing business and an an integral part of our success over the last decade.
That said here are just a few of the ways we support the amazing people who help to make our race happen. Financial donations towards key trail building projects, membership in the NSMBA TAP (Trail Adoption Program), volunteer trail days with our extensive BC Bike Race crew, financial donations to both mountain bike and other non-profit community oriented organizations, grassroots event support throughout our province, sponsorship of community riders, our Kazlaw Community contest and multi-faceted support of the BC High School Championships.
All of that aside, we introduce British Columbia and these amazing coastal communities and mountain bike meccas to 600 international racers each year and in doing so have a strong impact on the local economies and British Columbia tourism in general. BC Bike Race is far more than a race. While it may be the best seven days you’ve ever had on a mountain bike, that’s only part of the story. BC Bike Race is an adventure and an experience.
