The Route

Day One of GearUp4CF will take you 100km from the shores of the Pacific Ocean at Crescent Beach to Chilliwack at the end of the Fraser Valley. The beautiful and flat ‘century’ ride through the valley’s country roads offers scenic views and very little elevation gain. The mountains ahead of you will give your eyes a feast as you ride along with both the 1-day and 2-day Riders.
Riders are welcomed upon arrival in Chilliwack and are provided with a celebration dinner at the Coast Hotel. Friends and family are invited to join the dinner celebration at Coast Chiliwack Hotel. Tickets will be available for purchase from May 1. 

Day Two will be a test of endurance and strength. After departing Chilliwack, you will enjoy an easy ride to Hope. Here the road climbs to the site of the Hope Slide. The ascent continues on to Allison Summit (elevation: 1,342 m) in BC’s beautiful Manning Provincial Park. Be aware, the weather in the park is unpredictable. It is crucial to be prepared with appropriate clothing for temperatures below 10 degrees celcius, rain, fog and even snow. Once you peak at Allison Pass it is a downhill run to the Manning Park Resort where we will have dinner and celebrate the enormous riding and fundraising efforts that everyone has put in.
The route is subject to change and riders will be informed of the finalized route as soon as it is available. We use Strava for our route mapping.

GearUp4CF is not a race and it is not timed. This is a fully supported ride with aid stations as well as support for riders with flats and mechanical issues, and first aid. Moto support will be provided along the route at the front and back of the riders.
