On Sunday May 14th, 2017 we are offering three different guided rides on the Coast to showcase our trails. These will start at 10am. If you’re more interested in downhilling Coast Gravity Park is offering all racers discounted Bike Park Passes.
Guided rides are in the same spots as last year and we are sticking with the same info but we are dropping Robert Creek

- Sprockids park – our very own bike park developed by the famous Doug Detwiller. Doug started Sprockids many years ago. This area now connects to many other trails of varying difficulties. This ride could be three hours long. Ride to Persephone Brewery in 2 minutes afterwards. Maybe even plant your vehicle at Persephone beforehand. Intermediate but lots of climbing.

This event is a fundraiser. We will offer guiding but suggest you bring a snack along with your tools as you would if riding on your own. Afterwards you are all invited to meet and celebrate your achievements at Persephone Brewery at the corner of North Road and Stewart Road in Gibsons. They have many different beers to offer, as well as an outdoor brick pizza oven which smells fantastic after a ride! Children are welcome. We will meet in the covered picnic area. They are only 2 minutes from the ferry terminal.
