For those bikepackers out there not yet up to the full 1000+ km and 11000+ m of elevation of the BC Epic, BC’s ultimate bikepacking race, or those that simply do not have the time this season to commit to the Epic… comes the ‘Buckshot’!

The 2021 Edition of the infamous Buckshot bikepacking ride out of Kamloops, BC. This years route is all new again with the preliminary route (some scouting still needed to finalize in the spring) coming in at 473km with 7200m of vertical!

To comply with current Covid restrictions in BC, it will be a locals only ride at this time as non-essential travel for recreation is discouraged, recreating outdoors in one’s own local area is allowed and encouraged. To be further complaint we will have a rolling start with social distancing (riders remain 2m apart apart at all times) with no gathering beforehand and nobody riding together/drafting. Tracking through Tracleaders will be arranged with the link to follow closer to the time.
