Registration is open!

We’re trying to demonstrate in pictures how this works…register now, then look like this happy cyclist on course! It’s (almost) that simple, and that smile is practically guaranteed (if not while on course, certainly when you’re done. Or, like, a few days later. Maybe.).

Registation for most events (the new 54km event info and registration will be posted soon) is now open:

FatBike Rentals from White Pine Bicycle Co.


We’re pleased to announce that White Pine Bicycle Co. has accepted our invitation to partner with Actif Epica by offering FatBike rentals for our event.

We’ll hammer out details soon but we can say now that we’ve been offered a great race rental rate for our soon-to-be-officially-announced shorter distance race/ride (not more than 56 km, or in other words not more than approx half our current shortest distance).

Rentals would likely be picked up at the White Pine Forks (Johnston Terminal) rental location on Friday before our pre-race meeting and dropped off at the Forks as soon as you cross the Finish Line (well, we’ll let you recover for a few minutes before we take the bike back). If enough people rent bikes White Pine might be willing to transport the bikes to the short distance start line themselves.

The bike rental will be the same or similar (possibly from a comparable but different brand) to what is pictured below.


For more info feel free to email us at or email White Pine Bicycle Co. directly at

It ain’t all glamour / Registration to open soon!


We’re crunching numbers to determine how to tighten up the race a bit so that CheckPoints are open for less time without affecting racers. It’s kinda interesting to be able to visualize the flow of the race. Now we need to go for a ride or something tho 🙂

The net effect to racers will be minimal btw. Likely some slightly revised start times but nothing major.

In other news, we hope to have registration open very soon! Check back soon.

Autumn is here, Winter planning begins


The kids are back in school, the thermometer is starting to dip a bit, and the leaves are changing colour.  Here at race headquarters that means it’s time to ramp up our planning for Actif Epica 2019!

Going into our official fall planning meetings we anticipate the race will look similar to what participants, volunteers, and spectators have become accustomed to in recent years, although we’re always looking for areas of improvement. We hope to nail down route decisions, registration costs, and more in the next month or so and we’ll update things here as they happen.

Speaking of ‘here’, we’re in the final stages of refreshing our website as well. Hopefully you’ll find the info you’re looking for on the site but if you have any unanswered questions email us at anytime.

We look forward to your involvement as a participant, volunteer, or spectator in 2019!
