Bike 'n Ski Award
In 2014, the Canadian Birkebeiner Society and Multiple Sclerosis Society - Alberta and NWT Division - partnered up to create a unique award opportunity; the Bike ‘n Ski Award. The award celebrates individuals who complete both a long-course Canadian Birkie cross country ski event (55, 40 or 31 km) and a MS Bike Tour - either the Leduc-Camrose road bike Tour, or new in 2015/2016, the Hinton Mountain Bike Tour.
Recipients receive a beautiful ceramic mug as a keepsake and their names are presented in the Bike ‘n Ski Award recipient list for the year in which they completed the challenge. Individuals need not do a bike and ski event in the exact same year; participation in either event from 2014 and forward will count. Participants can only receive the award one time; although we warmly encourage people to keep doing both events because they are so amazing and intrinsically rewarding.
If you cycled the Leduc to Camrose Tour or the Hinton Mountain Bike Tour and are interested in skiing a long course event at the next Canadian Birkebeiner, call the Birkebeiner office at 780-430-7153 to receive $10 off of your registration.
