This is a permitted race course, not all trails can be ridden 365 days a year. Please respect Land Managers and Ride at Your Own Risk.

This final day, your victory lap, will be a final challenge to put to the test you accumulation of singletrack knowledge, save some gas for this day it will challenge and excite, but not without effort.

A course of ups and downs, flowing through the Whistler valley and touching on some classics: Riverside, Farside and a grind up to Tunnel Visions, stretch your legs on the brief stint of road before delving into Danimal, Al La Mode - these are taking you upwards, before you wrap over the top on the Sproat flank and begin heading downwards through Beaver Pond and Danimal North along the flow of Hot Dog Alley to the sprint into Rainbow Park. Hopefully you are all up for the Challenge on this final day.

During the winter, Whistler is a world-class ski resort, but in the summer, it turns into a mountain biking Mecca. Come explore the awesome trails with us on your final day of BC Bike Race before crossing that Day Seven Finish Line to celebrate Rainbow Park!

Awards and Finisher Medals will be presented at the Finish Line, followed by our Final Banquet that evening.

 Such a shame for the racers that they end the race on such a lacklustre loop and only get around 4km of fun trails, considering how much good riding is available in the valley.
