The Fernie Luckys 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 relay events. Families, youth and company teams will love the team options and fun course.
The Fernie Transrockies Society launched the Fernie Lucky 7’s, in June of 2017 with a round of applause from the participants. The event proved to be both fun and lucky for everyone. It was inclusive with participants ranging in age from two to 70. All participants got to roll the dice for a chance to take home great prizing from Gearhub Sports–most did!
The solo riders pedaled up to 95kms, teams of two managed eight laps on the 13.5km course, and the family and corporate three person teams had a full day! The Kids’ Bike Rally enjoyed its 11th year and a one lap U15 girls and boys race was hotly contested. The applause was based on the fun that was packed into the seven-hour event.
