It’s time to gear up for the hot and sizzling Porky Blue ride.

The fourth annual Porky Blue ride will be a four hour, 26 km mountain bike ride for strong bikers, on Saturday, August 3.

All participants will receive a numbered race plate, t-shirt, dinner and beer garden ticket to the after party at The Fernie Hotel.

Sign up is online at www.FernieTrails.com, at the Guides Hut in Fernie, or late registration the morning of the event. Only the first 100 sign-ups will be guaranteed a shuttle ride up to the top of Coal Creek summit.

Registration is at the Fernie Hotel between 8 a.m. and 9:30 a.m.  The shuttle leaves at 10 a.m. and the ride down starts at 11 a.m.

Porky Blue is organized by the Fernie Trails and Ski Touring Club as a fundraiser for the Fernie trails network. All entry fees will be used for trail maintenance. Two townie bikes will be raffled for additional fundraising.
