Comox Valley – Powell River – Earls Cove – Sechelt
A 6:30am ferry ride directly across the Straight of Georgia from Courtenay/Comox brings you to the warm, friendly community of Powell River on the Upper Sunshine Coast.
Accessible only by sea or air, BC’s spectacular Sunshine Coast is an outdoor enthusiast’s delight. Experience the creations of local artisans and unique heritage of First Nations peoples, soak up the spectacular scenery and bask in the mildest climate in Canada.
Your first 30kms from Powell River to the second ferry of the day will be on buses. Kick back and enjoy the scenery then we’ll get you to your second ferry crossing. Then it’s race time with roughly 60km of road and trail which bring you to the community of Sechelt, your Stage Four host, teeming with arts and culture.

Stage 4 over. Early morning, long day in blazing sun, but we had a great ride, totally nailing the final technical singletrack section #BCBR

Stage 4 was a good one for us. Made up some time, beat several teams close to us. Picking up steam. Definitely riding strong. Bedtime #BCBR
