June 12, 2014 - June 15, 2014
5 Race Stages. 4 days. A $21,000 prize purse. You'll be hard pressed to find a more spectacular setting than Banff National Park. 500 cyclists from Western Canada and the US will participate in five competitive events and two family friendly events from June 12th to 15th, 2014.
As an ABA sanctioned event you must hold a valid UCI license to race, for more information and an outline of the races, visit the race details page.
Everyone can take part in our Festival Fun activities as part of Bike Fest. Kids take part in the Balkan Restaurant Little Crits fun ride followed by Cruise for a Cause which features adults in costumes and wacky bikes, entry by donation.
For those looking for a longer ride head down the Bow Valley Parkway to Castle Mountain Chalets on Saturday for a fundraising BBQ in support of the Bow Valley Mountain Bike Alliance, or cycle to the Cave and Basin National Historic Site on Sunday for Father's Day and relax in the new picnic area.
