Feeling strong?  Good mental game? Up for a serious challenge? 

We'll test that.

Join Captain of the Edmonton Oilers, Andrew Ference and MEC in this one-of-a-kind challenge combining cycling and stair climbing throughout Edmonton's River Valley. The challenge will have you riding over 25 kms on both single track and paved trails, and climbing/descending over 2000 stair steps - carrying your ride each and every step. Your legs will feel the burn after the first set of stairs, and you'll have about 14 more sets to complete before crossing the finish line. 

Still interested?
