About Us

If you're interested in where it all began and who the people are behind the scenes of NIMBY FIFTY, you've come to the right spot.

The NIMBY FIFTY grew out of the desire to create a premiere mountain bike race at the north end of the sea-to-sky corridor. Traditionally most sea-to-sky corridor bike races have been held in either Squamish or Whistler - never in Pemberton. That all changed in 2010.

The official opening of the epic Big NIMBY trail in summer 2009 ushered riders into Pemberton from around the region.  With such a vast network of single track in close proximity to this amazing climb, the stage was set for a long distance, technical bike race.

Local Roots

The NIMBY FIFTY race has been put together and organized through the efforts of three local Pemby riders: Dean Linnell, Russ Wood and Terry Evans, along with the help and support of numerous sponsors and interested individuals. The trio bring together a variety of event organization experience along with some serious riding and racing passion.


We are currently looking for volunteers. If you'd like to be part of the official NIMBY FIFTY behind the scenes team, let us know!
