The 28th annual Westside Wheel Up will look a little different because of COVID-19, but the long-running mountain bike race is still a go this weekend.
Instead of the traditional race format, registered riders will consult Trailforks to learn which badges they need to obtain. The more badges a rider accumulates, the better the chance of winning a prize.
Riders can earn the badges starting on Saturday morning (Sept. 26) at 8 a.m. until the contest closes at 7 p.m. on Sept. 27.
As group rides are not permitted, participants must only ride with those from their bubble, keep two metres apart from other trail users, avoid congregating at trailheads and parking lots, and ride within their limits.
The entry fee is $10 for WORCA members. Those who are not members can obtain a single-day membership for $15. Each entry includes a beer at Whistler Brewing’s taphouse.
