We loved the energy and grass roots vibe that James and Darch bring to this event. A grueling 120km event created five years ago has grown to a point where the Merritt Crown recognizes the opportunity to grow the sport of mountain biking for all people of all ages in British Columbia. Although a bit outside of our comfort zone of the tarmac, this event continues to challenge our way of doing things and also aligns with our goals of getting more people and women on bikes.
In 2022 our goal is to achieve 50% female participation by breaking down the 'intimidation factor' of the massive ride. Evergreen Cycling will be putting in a team to participate in the 60km 'Tiara' edition.
