Event Information


Saturday, April 30th 2016 will see your favourite XCM move out to showcase the trails of West Sechelt. The Sunshine Coast Cycling Club will have 45kms of riding planned, along with the usual 21kms XC shorter course option. A meal and a beer will be included with race entry fee as before.

Sunday May 1st

On Sunday May 1st, stick around for one of the four guided rides offered on the Coast; Sprockids, Kinnikinnick, B&K, and Wilson Creek.  These are by donation and all proceeds will go to the local clubs who build and maintain our trails.  Rides will be classifieds according to kids, gravity sucks, real XC, and more XC. Join in for a beer after the Sunday rides at Persephone Brewery in Gibsons.  Kids are welcome there too.  There is an outdoor pizza oven which you can smell a mile away!
