The BC Ice Cream Century is a great way to kick start summer. With a variety of route options, there is something for every skill level. We have partnered with some of the areas best ice cream shops to give riders a taste of sweet summer treats paired with country roads.
Each BC Ice Cream Century registration includes:
Riders are given designated starting times based on their mileage chosen. To ensure the safety of the riders, each rider will be asked to check-in at each stop along the route.
SAG support is offered by both Cereal City Athletics and Mike's Team Active Bikes. SAG support is limited to bike malfunctions that render the rider unable to finish the course. It is not intended for riders who tire and decide to terminate the ride.
Starting and ending at Mike's Team Active Bikes, the Double Scoop is a full metric century with 4 stops plus an added aid station. Riders participating in the Double Scoop route will have stops at
Dark Horse Creamery

Due to volunteers, staffing at ice cream stops and food for finishers, the schedule has been carefully coordinated based on route distances. Riders are required to start at the scheduled start time of their selected ride.
Each ice cream stop will be staffed with a volunteer based on estimated arrival times and will remain staffed with a volunteer until the last rider checks in. In consideration of our volunteer's time, please let someone know if you will not be checking in to a specific stop.
The finish line celebration will be available from 12:30 pm until 2:00 pm. If you happen to be super speedy and arrive before the above stated time, you may have to wait until food is set-up and available.
This is a RIDE not a RACE. All riders will be expected to follow the rules of the road when cycling. Turns will be adequately marked, however, there will be no on-course support to direct/divert traffic.

To keep track of the progress of all of our riders and for their safety, we require each rider to check in at each stop. If you are planning to not stop at a stop, you must let a volunteer know so that can be communicated to the volunteers and event organizers.
Volunteers will be at each station checking in participants.
If you will not be finishing the rider, you must also let a volunteer know.
If a rider misses a check-in and does not return to the finish within a reasonable amount of time, the participant will be contacted via the number given at registration. If we are unable to contact the participant directly, the emergency contact will be called. Don't make your friends or family worry, check-in!
It's that simple. Safety is a priority and we do not support cycling without wearing a helmet. Our volunteers have the right to ask for proof of helmet. If you are seen riding without a helmet we will ask you to discontinue your participation in the event.
