BC Epic 1000


The fourth Grand Depart for the BC Epic 1000. The BC Epic is  actually 1066km long, with 11,600m of climbing. It traverses across South Central BC, from Merritt to Fernie (or vice versa if you choose) mostly along the Trans Canada Trail. The route is about 80% off road on mostly old decommissioned railgrades (Kettle Valley Railroad from Brookmere to Midway, Columbia Western from Midway to Castlegar and Great Northern from Salmo to Nelson), with a few sections of challenging singletrack and the rest mostly rough gravel forest service road and about 100km of paved road.
