Ride like King with Giant Bicycles.

Small change to the maps and course release this year. You can see the full route, but stage starts and finishes are going blind. There will still be the same three stages as all past years, they will be of the same variety and flavour. No we won't be adding in any massive amounts of uphill timed climbing, but they might just be a wee bit.

Apres will be located at Giant Bicycle Canada Offices located at: #100-2255 Dollarton Hwy, North Vancouver.

Reminder of our 200 rider cap. See the event page linked to this route for the full sponsor and event details.
