Sunshine Coast Mountain Bike Challenge
Group Ride Details:

The sunshine coast is a short (and scenic!) ferry ride from Vancouver. Our first day’s ride will begin from Halfmoon Bay, only 45 minutes north of the Langdale ferry terminal;utilizing a combination of existing trail systems, deactivated forestry roads and single track trail, our route will take us (35 km-elevation gain of 700m) to Porpoise Bay. There will be festivities and overnight stay at Porpoise Bay Park (camping facilities only). Sunday, the ride will continue south out of Porpoise Bay (45 km -elevation gain is 1300 m) across Mt. Elphinstone, to Langdale and a finish-line celebration.

Previous participants have come from all around BC, including locals from the Sunshine Coast, and lower mainland, but also from across Canada even Europe! Ages ranged from 8 years (congrats Ben!) to a 79 year old who had 3 generations riding. Amazing! This ride has been hailed as the best point to point ride in BC!
