Keefer Madness
Adventure Bike Gathering
Vol. 2

Sept 1st - 3rd 2023

An Adventure Bike Gathering Like No Other!

Time for Volume 2 of the Keefer Madness Adventure Bike Gathering! It all happens the weekend of September 1st - 3rd, 2023. You will enjoy a weekend of exploring the backcountry with a group of dedicated, like minded riders and stay in one of two lakeside mountain lodges. Choose from full day or half day Group Rides. Once the day is done, relax at our lakeside lodge for apres and meals that will impress you away as much as the terrain.

If you are an adventure bike rider, you will want to make sure this event is on your calendar this Summer!

Staying at Keefer Lake Lodge

Keefer Lake Lodge is a stunning property that features sprawling, park-like areas both around the lodges and the lake. Enjoy refreshments at our outdoor reception area or take in the mountain and lake views from our large upper deck. Our property features 2 luxury, timber-framed lodges. The Black Bear lodge features 9 guest rooms and has stunning views of the lake and surrounding mountains. It also boasts giant wood beams, a bar, lounge, and games room, and plenty of open spaces. The Pinnacles Lodge has 16 guest rooms with beautiful views overlooking the lake and mountains.


Dining at Keefer Lake Lodge

Our culinary team creates unique dishes using globally inspired menus and fresh local produce & meats. Whenever possible we use locally grown, sustainable, organic, free-range ingredients. 

Your meals at Keefer Lake are  hearty, tasty and healthy. Your mornings at Keefer begin with a steaming cup of fresh coffee or tea and a breakfast that will start your day off right. Our new espresso machine will satisfy every coffee drinker. 

Lunch is served right on the mountain. Customize your lunch with a variety of healthy snacks and homemade treats to give you energy to power through the riding days. 

Back at the lodge, the tantalizing aroma of dinner will greet your arrival paired with a delicious aprés-ride snack. You’ll have time to freshen up beforehand and enjoy snacks and drinks in the bar. Dinner is served around a large communal table and is always full of entertaining and lively stories from the ride days. 


Keep the Good Times Going with Après!

Après is as much of the experience as the riding. After your day of riding in the Monashees nothing feels better that kicking back with your favourite beverage, enjoying some delicious après snacks and reliving the day with your crew. We have created the perfect space - the Keefer Lake Lodge Bar and Lounge.

We have something for everyone. From fresh local microbrew beers to your standard spirits and an extensive wine collection. Have a favourite cocktail? Put our bar tender's creativity and skill to the test! 

ENJOY OUR AMMENITIES

Relax in Our Scandinavian Inspired Sauna

Relax your muscles and sweat out the toxins in our naturally woodfired mountain sauna. We preheat this sauna daily for your enjoyment. There is nothing like a good sweat to prep those muscles for the active day ahead!

Soak in the Hot Tub

Relax and visit with fellow guests in our large outdoor hot tub. Enjoy a cold beer or glass of wine with our bar service and retell the stories of dirt and glory from the day!


Have Some Friendly Competition

The party eventually moves from the bar to the games room. Don't worry, our bar staff won't leave you stranded down there! There is always a good time to be had downstairs in our spacious games room. With plenty of room for your entire crew to play, watch and lounge.

We have Chimps for partners!

The Dirt Chimps have teamed up with Keefer Lake Lodge to help put their routes together and to come host some of the excursions. If you aren't familiar with them yet, click a few of these links. You're going to love em!
