Schach Therapy - June 1st, 2024

A mountain bike relay race or ride for the cause on Mount 7, followed by an evening event featuring a public speaker and a short film series.

The Race or Ride for the Cause

Teams of 2, 3, or 4, climbing and descending Mount 7.  The climb starts at the Reflection Lake parking lot and takes the Schacher Trail to the launch site then descends the route of your choice. 

Not interested in racing? No worries! Ride for the cause! Many have made climbing The Schacher a personal goal and this is the time to make it happen -- with friends and community by your side.

The Climb: The Schacher 15km

The Schacher trail was completed in 2018, providing a single track trail from town to the Mount 7 launch site.  Local family man Sean Schacher was the inspiration for this trail, and it was the drive of local family man/good-guy-with-superhero-powers Jeremy Harris who made it happen. Both of these 2 local riders now ride along in spirit with you on this ride.

Teams can only switch riders out at specific locations; the road crossing at 5.5k, 10k, and the launch.

Leg #1 - 6.0km +538m - Bowle-Evan road - Woodlot ride trail - Schacher to just above the 5km on the Bowle-Evan road.
Leg #2 - 6.3k +500m - Schacher to 10k trail junction. 
Leg #3 - 3km +306m - Schacher to launch

The Descent:  Choose your adventure

From the launch site to the Reflection Lake parking lot. All Riders MUST pass through the checkpoint at 5k, the only location for a rider switch and finish on 5k to the finish at Reflection Lake parking lot.

No descending the Schacher, except the section from Summit connection to B52. (ex. if you are taking the summit down to summit connect to B52 to 5k)

It is required for teams to submit their descent route during event plate pickup.

We recommend carpooling to shuttle riders to their starting points and ideally having the ascenders drive the vehicles back down to Reflection Lake for the finish. 

All teams must check in when all team members are back at the Reflection Lake Parking lot. 

Unfortunately, there is no E-bike category this year.  

To participate, individuals must be at least 12 years old or older.
