The trail gods shined upon us and we are able to keep the best event of the year going! Registration and details below! As usual there is a low roller option too.

September has always been a favourite month for mountain biking in Fernie. Cooler temperatures, the start of the autumn colours and a few less folks on the trails – just perfect. Long-time staff member Gui shares the excitement about the September Bonus Weekend.

As the summer comes to a close why not try something new to challenge yourself?
