MTBA Sugarloaf - Fall Summit and Festival - 2021 - POSTPONED

Save the date!
Our annual Summit and MTB Festival brings together mountain bikers, business owners, trail managers, and other stakeholders to learn, network, and grow the mountain biking community in Atlantic Canada.
This Summit facilitates valuable conversations that unite four Atlantic provinces in an effort to showcase the east coast as a mountain biking destination.
Please note: we will continue to adhere to the advice of public health officials as we navigate the COVID-19 pandemic in relation to recommendations made for event organizers.

Official word from MTB Atlantic…

Notice to Postpone the Mountain Bike Atlantic Fall Summit & Festival to 2022

Navigating the restrictions for events during a global pandemic certainly created a few hurdles for planning the Mountain Bike Atlantic Fall Summit and Festival, but our team optimistically charged forward. Recently however, we have learned about the threat of a provincial-wide strike that would completely disrupt and possibly completely halt the operations of our host venue, Sugarloaf Provincial Park.

With the goal of making this event a great celebration of mountain biking on Canada’s East Coast, we have decided that it is best to postpone this event to spring of 2022. Our organizing committee is already working on this, and we look forward to releasing the schedule and ticket information later this month, so you can plan accordingly.

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, and thank you for understanding that we would rather cancel now and look forward to hosting you next year than risk putting on an event that has to navigate both a strike and a pandemic.

We are offering full refunds or transfers to ticket holders, so you can choose from the following 2 options:

  1. Refund back to the original payment method used to buy the ticket (we completely understand!)

  2. Transfer my ticket to the spring event (thank you!)

Thank you and see you at Sugarloaf Bike Park in the spring!
