First-ever Mega Volt lands on Vancouver Island
Is it a race? Is it a ride? Is it a good time? Yes.
As electric mountain bikes grow more and more commonplace on trails across Canada, eMTB riders are looking for ways to gather together. While most events focus on traditional race formats, BC Bike Race decided to try shock the ebike community into collecting around an entirely new format. The result, the first ever Mega Volt, took place in Vancouver Island’s Cowichan Valley from Oct. 22-24.
