The bike course for both Sport and Chamionship distances will take you on some of Squamish's most amazing trails. The course has been designed to accomodate all rider skill levels.
The hardest sections include "blue" trails (Rollercoaster, Lumberjacks). It is strongly recommended to pre-ride the course to familiarize yourself with the trails and difficulty level. A "blue" trail in Squamish might differ in technical difficulty from blue trails in other locations.
Only mountain bikes are legal for competition. Cyclo-cross bikes are NOT allowed.
No drop handlebars are allowed. No aero bars are allowed.
All bikes must have 26", 27.5" or 29" wheels.
Bar extensions or grips off the handlebar may not exceed 5 (five) inches
Any/ all bar ends must be capped
The Sport distance bike course features one lap whereas Championship competitors complete a modified second lap.
Both Sport and Championship riders follow the same route leaving Alice Lake South Beach through the campground, up a double track access road to Cliff's Corners then heading down to Mashiter, Rollercoaster and Lumberjacks to gain the acceess road to Jack's trail.
Sports distance competitors follow Jack's trail back to transition at Alice Lake South Beach.
Championship competitors follow Jack's trail to turn right on 50 Shades of Green and climb up to Mike's Loop and further on to Mice & Men from where riders descend to Edith Lake. A short section of double track will lead riders back to the access road to Cliff's corners. From here riders follow the trails of the first lap back to Alice Lake.
