The Lost Elephant Grand Depart

  • Cranbrook, British Columbia (map)

A 500 km bikepacking event/race around the East Kootenays. It's a tough route with approximately 30,000 feet of climbing. Our course is primarily made up of backcountry roads. There's not really any single track to speak of and just a small amount of paved road at the beginning, middle and end.
