More Info
  • This is an offroad, unofficial, completely self-supported bikepacking ride/race in the spirit of the underground ‘Tour Divide’ race and under the same rules. No registration, no support, no insurance, no prizes. You show up and ride at your own risk. The BC Epic is a 1,000 km (1,066 to be exact) and 11,600m elevation traverse across southern BC starting in Merritt and ending in Fernie. This unofficial event is in its fourth year and appears to be growing as more riders learn about the challenging and scenic route that offers a unique perspective on the diverse landscapes and places found along the way. The BC Epic 1000 Grand Depart takes place in Merritt at 7am on the last Saturday in June.

    Registration is open.
