Frequently Asked Questions...right here, right now

Q. What is the route?

A. Really...it is pretty loose and it is up to you. Here is the approximate route on Trailforks (click to see the route). You can ride from Elkford to Sparwood to Fernie or any portion of that trail. There will be an aid station in Sparwood with COVID19 friendly snacks. Ride a little or ride a lot - it's up to you.

Q. How long do I have to complete the route?

A. Again, there is a lot of flexibility on this. You can do it in one go or you can do it over the two days. We already had a father and son complete it last week as they are not available for the September long weekend.
