BearTrax at Bear Mountain Resort

This weekend (July 31 to August 2, 2015) I will be up at Bear Mountain Resort for the BearTrax Freeride Mountain Biking Festival contributing social media and photography services to the event. BearTrax at Bear Mountain is the biggest biking event (so far) that the resort hosts annually. BearTrax (formerly known as Jumpship) will showcase some of the world’s best freeride mountain bikers, most of whom will move on to compete at Crankworx in Whistler, BC next weekend.

This FREE family-friendly event includes a kid-zone with bouncy castle for the kids, a beer garden by Vancouver Island Brewery for the big kids, iRide clinics for the kids from CyclingBC, air bag for amateur riders, and all kinds of vendors, food trucks and DJ Bellyfish to keep the tunes pumping.

You will also have a chance to win a Rocky Mountain Soul 27.5 mountain bike over the course of the weekend by getting your Instagram on!
