16 Apr
This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is caleb-pike-april-19-40palleus.jpg

The Caleb Pike course has been a staple of the Victoria Road Racing circuit for years, offering a two-stepped punchy climb, a couple of technical corners, and some of the best rolling Vancouver Island roads. The 2.5km circuit is at Caleb Pike in the Highlands of Victoria. Strava segment

Online registration. Race start at 6:30pm at the intersection of Caleb Pike at Millstream Road

Rider check and on-site registration starting at 5:30pm at the Gowlland Tod Provincial Park parking lot.

We need volunteers for this race

Note: The district of the Highlands asks that all participants follow the rules of the road, especially when it comes to emergency vehicles (Racers must stop to permit access at all times.), and that ‘no parking’ signs are abided by.  This is especially true near the Gowlland Tod entrance at Caleb Pike Road.
