O

n behalf of Council and staff of the City of Fernie I extend greetings and a warm welcome to all competitors, support staff, families, media journalists and visitors of the TransRockies Race Series. This event always stirs emotion as competitors line Victoria Avenue to create a vision of colour as they begin a physical and mental trial of endurance and strength.

Fernie is proud to host the greatest mountain biking event in the world. We also boast to have the finest mountain bike trail network available and that is one of the reasons why Fernie has been able to continuously host this remarkable challenge since it first began 12 years ago. Local support from business, competitors and spectators has permitted this event to grow into several stages that allow biking enthusiasts with varying levels of interest and strength to participate in this most exhilarating challenge. Explore Fernie with your mobile phone. A convenient way to find information on Fernie events, lodging, activities, deals, shopping, dining and much more.

Special Thanks go to organizer Dan Savage and his team, the official sponsors and all of the volunteers that make this event possible. The City of Fernie is pleased to support and be the hosting City once again for this superb event. Visitors enjoy your time here; make sure to check out our unique shops and restaurants, our excellent Aquatic Centre and the many amenities our town offers. Good Luck to all competitors.

Kids’ Bike Rally by Nicole Liebermann

Event Overview:


The training wheels will be coming off for the seventh annual kids’ bike rally as part of the TransRockies. When 300 riders from 20 countries roll up to the start line in Fernie, they will be facing the beginning of a mountain bike ride, which includes more single track than ever. At the same time, kids aged 3 to 9 will be facing a fun and educational bike rally around Fernie’s downtown on Sunday morning. Activities on the rally include a bike check and a chance to accessorize and decorate your ride at Straightline and Fernie Heritage Library, bike safety information at Fernie Fire Department, nutrition and hydration information at Overwaitea, plus crafts and face painting at Freshies.
