Golden, BC, located in the heart of what is known as Kicking Horse Country, serves as an access point to no less than 6 National Parks (Banff, Glacier, Kootenay, Jasper, Mt. Revelstoke and Yoho). With the support of local government and the Golden Cycling Club trail builders, this town of 4500 is mad for mountain biking, skiing, hiking and anything outdoors.
Kicking off the 5th annual Singletrack 6, we’re visiting one of the most popular areas from the 2014 and 2016 editions of Singletrack 6: the Moonrakers and CBT trail systems. Fast and flowy best describe this day. You’ll be grinning ear-to-ear while gliding through lush forests and flying down trails like CBT Mainline, Canyon Creek and Gold Rush.
Please note that due to a sensitive goat habitat spectators are not permitted on the Canyon Creek portion of this stage.
