Welcome to the River Beaver Classic Funduro, part of a whole weekend of bike stoke at the Kamloops Bike Ranch!


This weekend is full of fun bike events including the funduro, a downhill race, a dual slalom, and a pump track session! Cheryl and the crew at the Bike Cafe have been working overtime to make sure this event goes off like a dream. Grab your bike, grab a friend, register HERE and come out Saturday and Sunday for non-stop good times!

If racing isn't your thing, don't worry! There will be demos from Giant, Kona, Specialized, and Santa Cruz. You can also just take in the action while enjoying a beer from Red Collar Brewing or a meal from the Eats Amore food truck.

When he isn t yelling into a microphone or beer can Devin Knopf practices being better than you at biking.
