Founded by Catharine Pendrel in 2010, BC Interior Cyclocross is the only BC cyclocross series outside the Lower Mainland with races in some of BC’s most beautiful cities and towns. We’re grassroots, fun-focused, and don’t take ourselves too seriously, though we encourage our racers to give their all!

All races are $25 for Cycling BC licence holders. Don’t have a licence yet? Get yours at You need at least a Provincial Ride license. Day licences can also be purchased for $10.

Be sure to read and commit to memory the Rider Guidelines… there’ll be a test later! Seriously though, it will answer all your questions about categories, bike requirements and more.
