The Vedder Mountain Bike Festival is Back!
The Vedder Mountain Bike Festival is back in 2017 to offer the most exciting events to date:
Vedder Mountain Classic & BC Enduro Series, May 6-7
Premiere single track trail, boasting a true “BC Style” mountain bike race. Offering fully taped courses, stocked feed stations, & after party, plus a change to chance to claim some of the $1400 in prize money up for grabs!
Once one of the longest running mountain bike races in BC, the return of the Vedder Mountain Classic is a tribute to the history of mountain biking and racing in BC. It will be a testament to the evolution of the sport, the riders, and the trails that have turned Vedder Mountain into one of the most popular riding destinations in the Valley.
