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.

Fun trail. Nothing difficult or spectacular but a nice ride. My 8 year old loves it and I’ve seen a lot of other kids on it.

Trail A La Mode
The new "Dessert Platter" work is exceptional for its quality. I noticed that the work was not only top notch but the finishing touches. Example - rock cribbing in uphill corners and benchcut; then topped with dirt; then narrowed and finally renaturalized with soil and moss. Incredible attention to detail

Don’t be fooled by the green status. This trail is as fun as you make it.

A zippy way to get up to high side etc and a fun flowy one to ride down.

Be mindful and respectful of hikers

This trail seems to have been mostly destroyed by a new road for hydro crews. The trail crosses the road many times but is almost unrecognizable anymore and we had a very difficult time locating the trail until the last 1/2 mike where we turned off on A La Mode

if you'll notice the description it's listed as a secondary access road due to the reactivation.

Combined this with Hindsight after climbing Microwave access road,for a loop deadset to get the juices flowing. The rock face is a butt-puckerer from the top but easily doable for the confident riders out there. The dirt up here is epic too, juicy juicy loam.

The current situation on lower sproat, in technical terms, is a$$-raped. Needs to be regraded, lots of areas of solid mud, occasional snow.

This tail is actually a black diamond trail, should be fixed on the app.

flipfantasia WORCA (Jul 23, 2017 at 9:08)
In the past before it was less maintained and more rough and raw and could've slotted more into black diamond territory, but it is in fact an intermediate trail and fits that definition as per the Whistler trail standards.

Cool, good to know. Took my girlfriend over there today and she was a little worried by the black diamond on the trail post (Near ACDC) Defiantly rides like a blue.

Trail LSD
It's a relatively smooth trail easily ridden both ways by less aggressive riders. The quick flowy ride down is still fun for everybody, I just wish it was longer as trails rideable both ways in Whistler are few. Its quiet with just a rambling stream here and there and a few short bridges

The first video associated with this trail is of the 'Riverside jumps" dirt jump lines in the Whistler Village (next to Car Park 2) and not actually anywhere near the trail named "Riverside". Can some PB-TF admin move the video please.

Rode up this morning to get to business time - a few sections I had to walk but mostly ridable. Made for a nice loop from bay shores. I saw a frisbee golf course in there too and would love to know more about it

flipfantasia WORCA (Jul 22, 2016 at 11:11)
it's just a unsanctioned frisbee golf course, not much to know about it....as we finish the new descending line above the existing trail, the old skid road portion of tunnel vision will see a few re-routes to make it an easier climb to get to the Cheakamus area.

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.
