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***
***PLEASE NOTE: This is not registration for the Canadian Enduro Series. The Canadian Enduro Series a is separate race from the Vedder Mountain Classic and is happening on Sunday, May 12th.
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.
