Nimby Fifty 2016The Nimby Fifty mountain bike race returns on Saturday, May 26, 2018!

The race is approximately 37 kilometres in length, boasting a lung busting 101 switchback long pristine single-track climb. This is not your typical XC race. The NIMBY Fifty is what is referred to as a technical marathon xc bike race which means it is absolutely loaded with incredible single track.


Space will be limited to 420 riders.  Online registration is currently open. Visit the Nimby Fifty registration page for full details. There are no cancellations and no refunds on registration fees.

Start Time

11:00 AM. Racers can "line up" wherever they would like. There will be an area cordoned off at the front of the start chute for pro/elite riders.


The race will go rain or shine. The weather in Pemberton can be considerably warmer than the coast. If it's 20 Celsius in Vancouver, it's completely feasible that it could be 30 Celsius in Pemberton. So plan ahead, stay hydrated and bring lots of water!
