Thanks for your support of a successful Vernon Bike Fest this year!
We will update this website when we have plans to announce for 2018.
Whether you live here or are coming from out of town, we want to spend the weekend celebrating all things biking and the amazing trails in the North Okanagan!
BC Enduro will be here, with practice on Saturday and races on Sunday, but we will be filling up the whole weekend with activities.
May 11: Trails in motion Mountain Bike Film Festival
Location: Vernon Towne Cinema
Time: Doors at 6:00PM, Movie at 7:00PM
tickets: $15 online, $20 at the door
NOCS will be screening the Trails in Motion Mountain Bike Film Festival. Trails In Motion Mountain Bike Film Festival is an annual, community-driven film tour that brings a collection of the finest mountain biking films to audiences around the world.
The goal of Trails in Motion events is not only to ensure the audience leaves with a true sense of shared inspiration that will ultimately encourage them to go out and discover their own connection with the world's seemingly endless network of single-track, but also to support aspirant and professional filmmakers expand their limits of film making. The Program is approximately 2.5 hours long, and we will have some local short videos playing before the Program starts at 7:00PM.
MAY 12: Show And Shine
Location: Ratio Coffee
Time: 7:00 PM
Come on out for a social night of celebrating bikes and live music from Chipko Jones (Reggae, Calypso, Roots). Enjoy house made Ratio pizza, cash bar with craft beer, local wine and BX Cider!
This event invites bike lovers to show off their unique, vintage or just plain old awesome bikes while listening to some great live music. Ratio coffee will be catering the event with a delicious assortment of hors d'oeuvre, and their beverage menu will be available for purchase. This will be a great social event bringing people downtown.
