MS Bike West Kootenay Challenge

Saturday August 19 8:00 am to 8:00 pm
Sunday August 20 8:00 am to 3:00 pm

MS Bike is the largest fundraising cycling series in North America and it’s the experience of a lifetime! Every year since 1989, cyclists of all ages and fitness levels across the country get together to end Canada’s disease: multiple sclerosis. Join us at this event full of excitement, challenge, community and we know you’ll leave with a sense of great accomplishment.

Challenge yourself. The West Kootenay ride places you in one of the top biking spots in Canada. If you want a real challenge, take on this ride with epic views and fabulous food!

This extraordinary two-day 222 km MS Bike tour loops around the Kokanee Glacier in the Selkirk Mountains, from New Denver to Slocan, to Kaslo, and back to New Denver with an overnight in Nelson. If you think you can’t ride the full distance, check out our Relay Option – all the fun, half the distance.
