ONLY mass participation off-road cycling event winds through flowy pine-needle trails and hairpin turns, over hills, roots and rocks, past curious donkeys and horses, and churns through chunky peanut butter mud and puddles. Oh, and maybe a few hike-a-bike sections to keep it legit.
Featuring: The Highlands. Hartland Mountain Bike Park. Vancouver Island Tech Park. Francis King & Thetis Lake Regional Parks. Private property that owners are opening up for this one day.

This event is a fundraiser for the Tripleshot Cycling Club youth cycling program and will support the development of year-round training for 11-18 year olds who train hard and love to compete in cross, road, track and mountain bike at local, provincial, national and international levels. Since 2016, thanks to the generous donations of the participants, we have been able to donate $15,650 of the funds raised to support the South Vancouver Island Nature Trail Society and the South Island Mountain Bike Society, two hard-working not-for-profits that work to connect and build trail systems for all to enjoy.
We respectfully enjoy, as visitors, the traditional territory of the W̱SÁNEĆ (Saanich) and lək̓ʷəŋən (Songhees) peoples of the Coast Salish Nation. We thank our hosts and honour their welcome and graciousness to those who enjoy the beauty of their land.
