The Mt. Revelstoke Steamer Road Bike Race will be on Sunday, August 25, 2019, in beautiful Mount Revelstoke National Park!
This year we’ll be mixing things up and it will be a mass start format.
Registration is now open at Zone4 with an early bird discount available until July 2. With the change to a mass start format and the increasing popularity of the event, we expect to sell out this year.
What: Mass start road race up the Meadows in the Sky Parkway in Mt Revelstoke National Park.
When: 7.30am on Sunday, August 25, 2019
Course Details: This year staging will be at the Nels Nelsen parking, with a neutral rollout back to the parkway. The 25 km course climbs 1,400m and finishes near the summit of Mt Revelstoke (taking a right at the Balsam Lake parking lot and continuing to the very end of the pavement). There are few places in North America with such a long sustained climb. The average gradient is not terribly steep at 5.6%, but the length makes up for lack of steepness. As you climb from temperate interior rain forest to sub-alpine meadows you are treated to improving views of the Columbia River Valley with the Monashees and Selkirks on either side. The road surface is excellent and the traffic is minimal. It is truly a memorable climb!
