Fernie Lucky 7's

Fernie Lucky 7's


The Fernie TransRockies Society will be managing the Fernie Lucky 7’s and once again will be fundraising for local trail organizations and not-for-profits and focusing on engaging youth and community cycling. With over 15 years of event experience you can expect a well-organized event. Professional timing, great prizing, first aid, food stations, trail support, bike support and a well thought-out course are the standard. The Fernie TransRockies Society was formed in 2002 as a not-for-profit with the objective of growing destination and community biking.

Fernie Lucky 7’s details:
The Fernie Lucky 7’s course will feature moderate climbs with lots of passing options and fun rolling downhill’s. The selected course is a 15 km loop with only 350 meters of vertical climbing. Course details will be released prior to the event.
Lucky winners will be selected from the Lucky 7 Craps table. All participants will have a chance to roll the dice for the winning Lucky 7’s. The top finishers from the categories will also be recognized.
The Fernie Luck 7’s categories are designed to be inclusive. The U15 and U9 events will continue and the family and corporate categories open new opportunities for great experiences.

A fun weekly race/ride series for all mountain bikers.

Mark your calendars and start NOT training (those caught training are disqualified...kidding...but training is highly frowned upon). Go hard and compete for the bragging rights or just come and enjoy the fun with like minded bikers. These are typically more enduro style and the emphasis is on having fun. Prizes and titles up for grabs!

Participants must be a member of the Fernie Mountain Bike Club, anyone can join - only $25 to join for the year, $50 for families! Sign up online beforehand! Participants under 19 years of age must be in attendance at the first race or make arrangements to sign a minor waiver in advance.

$2 entry fee per race goes towards beer for all participants - join your fellow riders for a post-race beverage & nachos at the Pub at Park Place Lodge and see the king and queen of the valley crowned after the last race.
