Looking for something fun to do on the weekend of Oct 16? With no Island race on the calendar that weekend, you might have a gap in your schedule. Check out this cool event that Triple Shot Cycling is putting on. Best part is that it’s a fundraiser for the Tripleshot Cycling Club Youth Team, who you’ve probably seen tearing it up at the local cross races.
Here’s a bit more info from the organization website:
“Sunday, October 16, 2016, 9am: Victoria BC’s first mass participation off-road cycling event for all ages and abilities winds through flowy pine-needle trails and hairpin turns, over hills, roots and rocks, and churns through chunky peanut butter mud and puddles. Oh, and maybe a few hike-a-bike sections to keep it legit.
Featuring: Bear Mountain. The Highlands. Hartland Mountain Bike Park. Camosun College. Francis King & Thetis Lake Regional Parks. Private property that owners are opening up for this one day. Short (approx 20km) and long course (approx 40km) options.
Don’t worry about the energy you will expend as we’ll keep you fuelled with tasty and well-stocked refreshment stops along the way. And when you’re done, you can relax with food and a bevvie on the deck of the Westin Bear Mountain Resort.
This event is a fund raiser for the Tripleshot Cycling Club Youth Team and will support quality year-round coaching for the youth team — age 11-17 — who train hard and love to compete in cross, road, track and mountain bike at the local, provincial, national and international level. A portion of the funds raised will also go to support the South Vancouver Island Nature Trails Society and their mission of connecting trail systems.
This event is run by the Tripleshot Cycling Club. Start/finish at Bear Mountain Resort; 9 a.m. start, registration open at 8 a.m.”
