West Point Cycles BC Day Supported Ride to Mount Baker

West Point Cycles Supported Ride - BC Day

Join us on August 7th for our third supported ride of the season: Mount Baker, USA! If you've yet to attempt this iconic ride, this event provides the perfect opportunity to give it a shot!

  • FULL Baker climb to Artist Point totalling 100km out-and-back - The classic Baker Ride, this route leaves from Maple Falls and brings you to the very top of the climb at Artist Point (picture riding between 15 foot walls of snow!). A snack and water table will be set up at the Nooksack camp ground 20km into your ride. Your lunch and any items you've left in the support vehicle will be waiting for you at the summit (50km) so that you can relax and appreciate your efforts! There are washrooms at Artist Point.

The ride will start from the parking lot of the Mt Baker Foothills Visitor Center in Maple Falls. Local service center washrooms will be open for use and parking is being arranged for the group. More detailed information will be emailed to participants before the event. 

The BC Day supported ride to Mount Baker is capped at 100 participants so sign up quick!


Cost and what's included:

The ride costs $15 with the option of ordering a picnic lunch from Avenue Bread for $15 (both must be paid online).

Picnics will be delivered to the lunch spot at the top of the climb. Snack/water tables will be set up at two locations along the route. We'll provide a turn list and a link to the GPX and TCX files and our awesome ride leaders/ambassadors will be on course with you.
