Trails to BCBR (BC Bike Race) is our ongoing feature of SoCal's Troupe Racing Company as they get ready for the ultimate stage race across Canada's British Columbia.

Instead of our usual holiday trip to Whistler while we visited family in Vancouver, we decided to explore and ride some of the BC Bike Race course in North 'Van. This area will be featured on Stage 5, and is said by locals to be the most difficult.

The guys at Steed Cycles set us up with bikes - a carbon Bronson and a carbon Nomad. While these won't be our race bikes, they did pump up the fun factor.
