    Site Plan 

    Start Line

    There is NO PARKING at the start line. There will only be a few spots available for event organizers. You must be dropped off here. The red square is where the start line will be.

    Finish Line

    BC parks have blocked out 40 spaces at Rubble Creek Car Park. We encourage you to car share where possible and have your driver arrive as close to your finish time as possible. Please post your rides on the Facebook page. We need to try and create a fairly swift collection system so nobody has to wait for parking. The red square is where the spaces will be and is also where the finish line is located.
