Bear Spray Demonstration

Event Time: 5.30pm / Event Location: In Town

FREE Bear Spray Demonstration with Kathy Murray

Learn essential wildlife awareness and use of bear-spray skills with wildlife expert & WildSafeBC Coordinator, Kathy Murray.

Free, all welcome.

Meet outside the Fernie Info Centre on Highway 3.

Come along and learn how to respond to wildlife encounters and get hands on experience using inert bear spray (like the real thing but without the sting of the pepper). The safest wildlife encounter is one prevented. Having bear spray accessible and knowing how to use it will give you the confidence to do the right thing (stay calm, assess the situation and respond accordingly) and not give in to the instinct to run (which can trigger the chase instinct).  Like wearing your seat belt, if used properly, bear spray could help save your life!

Transrockies Mountain Bike Race

Event Time: No time set / Event Location: In Town

TransRockies Classic Finish in Fernie, BC

The TransRockies Classic represents the return of one of the world’s most rugged and spectacular cycling events and returns to the spectacular Canadian Rocky Mountains July 22-28, 2019.

Crossing the continental divide while traversing from Panorama Mountain Resort to Fernie, British Columbia, the TransRockies Classic is an epic point-to-point 500+km journey for up to 300 hardy riders. Originally launched in 2002, the TransRockies quickly gained iconic status as one of the toughest and most prestigious mountain bike stage races anywhere, joining iconic brands like TransAlp and La Ruta as one of the original major stage races.

Riders travel on a mix of roads and trails from camp to camp, where amenities such as catered meals, hot showers, bike mechanics, and massage therapists are waiting to help riders recover and prepare for the next day.

Long, remote mountain stages are the norm at TransRockies, with daily distances averaging 75 kilometers, and sometimes exceeding 100km. Riders can expect to see regional wildlife and experience mountain weather along the way. A daily King and Queen of the Mountain point will be chosen to recognize the top climbers of each stage.

TransRockies Classic offers a focus on community and camaraderie, as 300 riders along with crew, friends and family come together on this shared mountain biking pilgrimage to make it to the finish line in Fernie. War stories are told around the campfire and friendships are forged for a lifetime. Elite racers share the start line with riders who are focused on achieving a TransRockies finish and coveted Finisher’s Belt-Buckle.
