The Grand Forks Cycling Club is again hosting a B.C. Provincial Master’s race.

Approximately 75 cyclists aged 35 and over are expected to participate in the three-day event.

This Friday (July 19) at 7 p.m., racers will be starting from 75th Avenue and North Fork Road, turning on London Road and grinding their way up to Saddle Lake. Racers will leave at one-minute intervals.

On Saturday (July 20) at 10 a.m., there will be the 40-km time trial, starting at 75th Avenue and North Fork Road with riders leaving at one-minute intervals, travelling to Brown Creek Road and back along the North Fork Road finishing at North Fork Road and Second Avenue.

The course has been adjudged as one of the best in the province.

On Sunday (July 21) at 10 a.m., the 76-km road race begins at Hutton Elementary School.

It moves along the North Fork, over the Hummingbird Bridge and on up to the 38.3-km mark, where the racers turn around and head back down Granby Road to finish at the Regional District of Kootenay Boundary landfill.

Since all races begin at or near 75th Avenue and North Fork Road, please be mindful of cyclists and volunteer course marshals.

The courses will have appropriate cautionary signage to advise motorists and we apologize for the inconvenience to them.

According to Master’s race officials, Grand Forks has some of the finest cycling routes in the province and the Grand Forks Cycling Club has done a superb job of running this high-level event.

Racers have also remarked on the hospitality displayed by the town toward them.

There will be local riders participating as well, so show up and support the yellow and black.

As a bonus, the Grand Forks BMX Club is holding events on Friday and Sunday, so come out and check out the action at City Park as well.
