What is the Fernie Lucky 7's? 

Fernie Lucky 7’s comes to Fernie, 2017

Fernie, BC.  The Fernie TransRockies Society is pleased to presents a new event for 2017– the Fernie Lucky 7’s (7 hours – 7 categories – 7 winners) to be held on Saturday June 24th.

The Fernie Lucky 7’s is a cross-country mountain bike event that caters to those looking for a fun experience. Competitive endurance and XC racers will be challenged in the 7-hour solo and team category events.  Families, youth and company teams will love the team options and easy course.

The Fernie Lucky 7’s replaces the Fernie 3 for 2017.  The Fernie 3 was a three-day XC endurance stage race that raised money for trails and charity, and supported youth cycling.  In 2016  $10,000 was raised and in the past 3 years $27,000 was raised overall.

The Fernie TransRockies Society will be managing the Fernie Lucky 7’s and once again will be fundraising for local trail organizations and not-for-profits and focusing on engaging youth and community cycling.  With over 15 years of event experience you can expect a well-organized event.  Professional timing, great prizing, first aid, food stations, trail support, bike support and a well thought-out course are the standard.  The Fernie TransRockies Society was formed in 2002 as a not-for-profit with the objective of growing destination and community biking.
