BC Bike Race

The BC Bike Race is far more than a race. While it may be the best seven days you've ever had on a mountain bike, that's only part of the story. BC Bike Race is an adventure and an experience of it's own! It's a tour of British Columbia's West Coast, including the trails, the towns, the lifestyle. There's something different about BC, even in how we get around. Our rugged coastline means you'll be crossing mountains and oceans, by boats, planes, buses and bikes. This is a journey you'll never forget!

And once again, in true Aava form, we are very proud to have been the Host Hotel on day seven, the last stop on this epic journey.
