You can pre-register at the Fernie Hotel for this 25 km mountain bike ride on Saturday, July 31. The first 50 to register will get a Porky Blue T-shirt when they sign the waiver on Saturday morning.
This cross-country mountain bike ride is mostly blue and single diamond (difficulty rating) and goes to the same elevation as Polar Peak (2135m) as it crosses Fernie Ridge and descends 1000 meters down to the Coal Discovery Trail. Excellent alpine meadows and mountain views on this moderate ride of about 4 hours.
