BC Bike Ride is coming to Burns Lake!

The Kager Lake campground will be CLOSED Aug 8, 2017.

This will allow the BC Bike Ride folks to have enough room to accomodate their entire group. Thanks for your understanding.

Big Pig Bike Festival

The Big Pig Bike Festival, in its 10th year this August 11-13, is the premiere mountain biking event in Northern B.C. A family friendly festival, with events for all disciplines and skill levels that you are sure to enjoy: kids events, downhill races, 4 Cross races, an epic cross country race and a brace of relay (or solo, your choice) cross country events. Everyone is welcome, and no one is left out, and for the winners, the coveted cookie medals.

Event Schedule: (subject to change)

Friday: 

This year, as in past festivals, the Tantalizing Trio for the 8 to 12 year olds will consist of the Pump Track Challenge, the Daunting Downhill on Betweaked, and the Crushing Kager Lake X‑country. A new twist has been added for the littlest competitors (under 7’s). Their search and capture skills will be tested with the Scouring Scavenger Hunt. It promises to be another fun-filled Friday evening packed with excitement and, best of all, Cookie Medals for all participants. It all kicks off at 5 PM.

  • Registration 4pm - 7pm
  • Kids Events 5pm 
    • Scavenger Hunt 5-7 yr olds
    • Downhill, Pump Track, Cross Country 8-9 yr olds and 10-12 yr olds

Saturday: The Cross Country Club

With the culmination of the 9 Rings of Hell of Dante’s Inferno we have embarked on a new series with the addition of the daunting Dante’s Relay, a timed event in which teams or solo riders race to complete the most number of 10 km loops in a five hour period. In conjunction with Dante’s, the famed Burnt Bikes Challenge 30 km (BBC 30) will kick off its fourth season. Both of these events start at 10 AM. And, as always, the ever popular, sometimes dangerous (right Tammy?), family friendly Wilbur’s Wheelay, hosted by the perennial race-master himself, Logan Wilson, will commence at 12 noon, precisely, and run for its usual 3 hours. It promises to be an exciting, sometimes chaotic, afternoon with racers coming through the staging area throughout the day. Come on out and cheer them on! Awards will follow the conclusion of the races, shortly after 3 PM.

  • Registration 8:30am - 11:30am
  • BBC-30 10am-3pm
  • Wilbur's Wheelay 12-3pm
  • Dante's Relay 10am-3pm
  • Awards to follow
  • Shuttles 5-8
  • Music at Kager Lake evening

Sunday: Gravity’s Gift

For the second year running the Downhill and 4 Cross races will be held on Sunday with the downhill on Charlotte’s Web starting at 9:00 AM. Timer extraordinaire, Greg Finch, will probably have the results posted about 10 seconds after the last racer crosses the finish line at which point we will head over to the 4 Cross track for that exiting display of aggression, skill, and strategy. This is a great opportunity for spectators (and photographers) to witness the often photo finishes as 4 riders in each heat attempt to outmaneuver each other in order to claim the title. Sunday’s gravity races’ awards and wrap-up will take place at the conclusion of the 4 Cross event.

  • Registration 8am-9am
  • Downhill race 9am Start
  • 4 Cross 1pm-3pm (depending on Downhill completion)
  • Awards immediately after 4 Cross
