Beaver Bike Fest
Dates to be determined • Hinton Bike Park
The 3rd Annual Beaver Bike Fest was scheduled for June 15, however due to weather it will be rescheduled. Registration starts at 9am and events start at 9:30 am with the ever popular age six and under Pump Track race. This is followed by a mini Downhill race on Flow Master, a Skills competition (with riders choose an easy or hard line), and then the very popular Dirt Jam, which wraps up the day. However, while we are tallying scores, there will be two just-for-fun events. The "Foot Down" competition will make its return followed by a "Snail Race" which makes its premiere.
Local bike shops, as well as some very supportive Jasper shops, will be making thier presence known with bike demo's from Specialized, GT, Rocky Mountain, and others.
