The West Kootenay Glacier Challenge is an extraordinary two day MS Bike road tour that loops around the Kokanee Glacier in the Selkirk Mountains, from New Denver to Slocan, to Kaslo, and back to New Denver with an overnight in Nelson.

Show your support for people living with multiple sclerosis by taking on this amazing challenge and cycling 222 kilometers over two days. We’ll provide the rest stops, food, and entertainment, and you can enjoy the epic scenery along the way. Don’t think you can ride the full distance? Check out our Relay Option – all the fun, half the distance!

All the money raised by this event goes to the MS Society of Canada to fund programs and services for people affected by MS; as well as to support vital research for improved treatments and to find a cure.

Accept the challenge today. Register, and together we will end MS!
