The Highline 100 is an annual road bike ride from Baynes Lake to the US border.

The Highline 100 raised $12,000 for charities in the community.

The road bike ride on August 10 is a fun and friendly day’s ride starting at Baynes Lake and heading to the US border. Riders can join at different points along the way, having a choice of riding 40 km, 100 km, or 160 km.

This year’s ride raised $12,000 from registrations, directed donations and the silent auction and raffle. The Elk Valley Hospital Foundation, FAST (Fernie Alpine Ski Team) and FIRE (Fernie Inspire the Race to Empower) will each receive $4,000.

Next year is the tenth anniversary for the charity ride.
