2019 Vedder Mountain Classic
Once one of the oldest mountain bike events in Canada, the Vedder Mountain Classic has a rich history that began in the early 80's and ran until the mid-1990s. The event was revived in 2016 by a group of passionate volunteers who were eager to share some of the most spectacular single track trails that the Valley has to offer: epic climbs, technical sections, long descents, smooth rolling contours, rocks, roots, and loam!
***Please note that you are NOT required to have an active Cycling BC licence or UCI license to participate***

The full course is the real meal deal! Roughly 35 km of racing with somewhere around 1500 m of climbing makes her a real beast! You will be treated to all the best trails Vedder has to offer with some super fun descents making the pain worthwhile. This takes riders anywhere from 2 hours and 18 minutes up to 5 hours and 22 minutes to complete.
Early Bird Pricing
A less grueling option for those looking to get a taste of the Vedder Classic. Sitting at around 15 km with close to 1000 m of climbing make no mistake this is still a tough course. Racers finish this race in times ranging from 1 hr and 15 minutes to just over 3 hrs.
Early Bird Pricing
There are two main parking lots: one behind the amusement park and the other off Lakeshore Drive. Parking is PAID at ~$12/day. Please do not park in residential areas – you will get towed.
