For some, the stage race is a dream trip, a weeklong adventure on some of Canada's most stunning trails. For others, it means a whole lot more.

Earlier this month, I competed in the BC Bike Race, a seven-day mountain bike stage race through British Columbia, with my teammate Paul LaPerriere. Each day we’d sample the best riding around a different community, racing an average of 30 miles of singletrack. It was challenging: In 25 hours of riding I covered 200 miles, about 140 of it on singletrack, and climbed 30,000 feet through the province’s steep terrain. As with any epic adventure I learned a lot on the trail, including these 12 pieces of wisdom. —Ryan Stuart

As the undisputed ultimate singletrack experience, the BC Bike Race (often shortened to BCBR) provides riders with 200 miles of riding and over 32,000 feet of climbing over seven consecutive days on some of the best singletrack in North America. It’s a race and don’t let anybody convince you otherwise—but it’s also a great way to enjoy back-to-back days of shredding singletrack for hours on end in one of the most beautiful corners of the globe.
