There is no better way to enjoy the beauty of the Valley than on a bike!

Get ready for this amazing bike event Saturday, May 6.

Get ready for this amazing bike event Saturday, May 6. This year introduces the start and finish at Fisheries Pool. The start time is now slightly later at 9:30am.

This enables many route options to suit every level of cyclists from the seasoned veteran to the newbie. The 30km route will be to the foot of the Hill and back to Fisheries. The 15km route is for families who may choose to shorten the route by turning back at Belarko or Big Rock.

The 60km route can be completed by turning around at the foot of the Hill and continuing past Fisheries to the bus turn around west of Burnt Bridge and the back to Fisheries Pool. A delicious lunch awaits all who register on or before Wednesday, May 3.

Many thanks to Bella Coola Heli Sports for sponsoring the BBQ for another year!
