BC Bike Race is far more than a race. While it may be your best week on a mountain bike, that’s only part of the story. BC Bike Race is an adventure and an experience.
For 2022 we are excited to delve deeper into the greater Okanagan area. We will take you further north into the Okanagan for the next BC Bike Race with more new locations and invite you to join us as we explore the trails, the towns, the lifestyle of the entire Okanagan region. The course is filled with the most singletrack of any bike race in the world, it is a curated and designed experience of hand-made trails made by mountain bikers for mountain bikers.


  • The most singletrack of any multi-day stage race in the world
  • A perfect combination of natural and hand-built trails crafted by mountain bikers for mountain bikers
  • Best week of your life
  • An epic week of riding
  • Professional timing
  • Shimano Tech Zone to fix any and all mechanicals
  • Fully managed course including
    • Course markings with pink ribbon, signage and marshals
    • Bike Patrol to assist with any on-course issues
    • Lead and sweep moto

We have a strong track record of safety excellence and hygiene standards and will continue to adapt and evolve our policies to meet all health and safety protocols as prescribed by BC Health Authorities


  • We are adopting a cloverleaf format: one central area to stay in Penticton and riding from there for some stages, with day trips to the other stages
  • 6 days of riding covering 9 stages
  • Camping and showers contingent on what’s allowed by the Provincial Health Order


  • A world class riding destination with 8 distinct trail networks around Penticton
  • A community with a rich history of hosting world class events and races
  • Best fall climate for bike riding in Canada: 18C/64F Average high with minimal rainfall
  • The fall harvest and wine festival
  • Convenient local airport
  • Strategically located in the middle of Southern BC
  • A stunning destination. This is a gem of an area to visit with a combination of big-clean lakes, mountains, a warm-sunny and dry climate and a flourishing wine industry


  • Fewer logistics and less moving around to create more time for off-bike fun and recovery. It also eliminates the long transfer days
  • As long as we’re permitted to do so by the Provincial Health Order, this will mean better beer and wine gardens and more daily entertainment
  • Time for change after 13 years doing a similar route. We are the BC Bike Race and British Columbia is a vast province to explore with exponentially more trails than when we started 15 years ago. Our plan was always to move it around the province of BC
  • New opportunities for our alumni to come back and experience something different
