Kluane Chilkat International Bike Relay



Kluane Chilkat International Bike Relay

During the long sunny days of June, more than a thousand cyclists wind their way through the high mountain passes of the scenic Haines Highway in an epic race from Haines Junction, Yukon to Haines, Alaska. Sometimes cyclists report seeing a grizzly bear ambling across the road, and some years the changeable weather offers up sleet in the pass and sun at the coast.

This incredibly fun team relay (teams of 8, 4 and 2) attracts both serious and recreational competitors, some coming from as far away as Europe and the southern U.S. The 250-km route passes through Kluane National Park and Tatshenshini-Alsek Provincial Park to the coastal Alaskan town of Haines.
