Date: July 31st, 2014
The Location: Revelstoke, BC is quickly developing a reputation as one of North America’s top mountain bike destinations. Located on the banks of the Columbia River and surrounded by the Monashee and Selkirk mountain ranges, this town calls out to the two-wheeled traveler.
The Plan: Arise, bid adieu to Golden, and ready yourself for one beautiful drive through Glacier National Park along the TransCanada Highway. We’ll descend into downtown Revelstoke, line up and roll out at 11am for your final day on trails built and maintained by the Revelstoke Cycling Association.
The Stage: Your destination for the Red Racer Stage 6 will be Mt. Macpherson where a seemingly endless amount of singletrack awaits to delight your mountain biking senses. ‘Variety is the spice of life’ and this final stage will be like no other in the ST6 line up. This day will test your legs and skill as you navigate your way through lush green forest over rocky and rooty terrain. Finish off your ST6 six-pack with a ride back to town where the party awaits! All routes are subject to change at any time to allow for quality control, safety of the riders and wildlife.
