We will be exploring the beautiful Cowichan Valley. Cowichan takes its name from Quw’utsun’, an Indigenous word that means the warm land. Cowichan is on the southern part of Vancouver Island, bordered by the Nanaimo and Alberni-Clayoquot and located in Canada’s only maritime Mediterranean climatic zone and is home to the warmest year–round temperatures in the country, perfect for a E- MTB bike race in October.
BC Bike Race and the Cowichan Trail Stewardship Society would like to respectfully acknowledge that this event takes place on the unceded and traditional territory of the Coast Salish Hulquminum Speaking peoples, and the traditional territories of Cowichan Tribes.
Powered the BC Bike Race
The BCBR MEGA VOLT is a weekend of different course styles, aimed to be both challenging but ultimately extremely fun! To explore the full potential of the E-Mountain bike we have devised a number of unorthodox formats and routes to both showcase this beautiful region and the abilities of the E-MTB. Fasten your seatbelts and hang on for a good time! We’re changing the script and everyone has a chance to be a winner in this weekend of amazing singletrack, challenging routes and hi-fives (COVID friendly of course).
