2010 BC Bike Race Route Unveiled
The annual BC Bike Race is coming to its fourth annual event in 2010. The organizers of the event have unveiled the route, which will include seven days of mountain biking from Vancouver to Whistler. They have tried to include as much single track as possible. “We had 400 riders last year, and will cap at 550 this year,” says Andreas Hestler, BC Bike Race’s marketing director. “Last year’s event started with a full stage on Vancouver’s North Shore and the legendary locale delivered a fierce opening round. While many riders want to see, feel and taste the North Shore riding, a full stage may not be the best way for the uninitiated. 2010 will include a short 2-3 km North Shore prologue, with just enough up, down and twisty trail to give all participants a taste, while only whetting the appetite for the next seven days,” he adds.
