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!

  • 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.
