bigquotesI did BC Bike Race two years ago now. . . and it’s pretty darn cool to be back doing the BC Bike Ride now. It’s just way more laid back and we’re getting these amazing trails in and we get to travel all over [British Columbia] like we haven’t before. It’s sick!Geoff Gulevich

Geoff Gulevich joined the BC Bike Ride back in August to explore the stashes of singletrack along British Columbia's northern corridor - Route 16. Amidst a busy summer schedule of international travel, he settled right into life around the campfire, fun group shreds, and the rich local culture in each location.

Enjoy this great edit by Max Berkowitz and photos by Dave Silver of Geoff railing the BC Edition Instinct on the hand-crafted trails in Smithers and Terrace!

 $3700 seems like a lot of money to ride for 6 days and sleep in a tent.

 I hit all the same destinations the week after, camping along the way. The fuel / food costs to drive there from Vancouver (need a truck when you're there) and ride for a week weren't insignificant. Adding guiding (with first aid knowledge...), transportation to and between locations, shuttling wear and tear, having staff cook, clean and attend to you, etc so you literally have to do nothing but ride is where the rest of the cost comes from. The logistics alone were very time consuming.

 @kperras: same goes for the BCBR. The logistics and support are pretty insane if you start thinking about it as a travelling circus of 600+ racers and about 200 staff

 For $616 per night, I expect they have a Michelin star cook, transfer my bike by airplane every night, and arrange a big group of prostitutes

 I didn't know Gully was a Dentist. Only $3700 for 6 days riding. That's called 2 sets of braces in the biz.

 There are plans for someone local to do a smaller, cheaper version of this for considerably less money next season. Plus a donation to each local trail society and all of the profit staying in the region.

 Love the concept of ride vs race. One question, was all that harsh rattling the bike or something else? If it was the bike that would drive me NUTS!

 $3700 seems like a typo. Did BCBR this year and it was $2k USD w/meal plan. Hmm
