Meetings, course scouting, trail maintenance, e-mails, phone calls... It's all building up for the sixth edition of the seven day BC Bike Race starting on July 1 in Cumberland BC. I have had the fortune to watch and document the event since day one. Event week is something I look forward to every year with excitement and anticipation, this year is no different. If you want to see images from past years you will find the galleries have been updated.
Some images from a course designers meeting in Cumberland last month, Its a great opportunity to sample some of the local riding for the crew and also get in a little trail maintenance session.
