The Backcountry Bike Challenge (BBC) is a collection of world-class backcountry mountain bike routes showcased to expand the community of backcountry cyclists. The BBC seeks to inspire riders of all backgrounds and abilities to find adventure through riding one (or many) of the BBC routes in any style they choose - via bikepacking, vehicle-supported travel, or chasing a fastest known time. The series includes both classic and lesser known backcountry routes with the ultimate goal of inspiring mountain bikers to tackle challenging backcountry trails and experience the reward of exploring more rugged or remote landscapes. The series also serves to highlight and fundraise for the trail organizations critical to maintaining these routes.
