THE MEGA VOLT, British Columbia’s premiere eMTB festival, is back for a third year. 2023’s festivities are located in the town of Naramata, giving riders access to the Three Blind Mice trail network.

“Three days of riding, talking, and sharing ideas, from dealers, to engineers, to pros, and everyone in between,” event organizers shared in a press release. “This is how pioneers stay on the cutting edge, and further the industry-leading conversation, one weekend at a time.”

What can attendees expect? Well, plenty of eMTB action on Naramata’s surrounding singletrack, of course. THE MEGA VOLT’s website describes the trails as “biking above vineyards with rugged mountains as the backdrop and sparkling lakes and beaches within the vista.”

Organizers devised an interesting set of events over the three-day weekend (June 2-4, 2023). Friday’s “Consistency Enduro” will feature a set number of laps on a short circuit, and the differential between each rider’s lap will determine their score. Translation? Consistency is key. It’s a physical and a mental challenge.

THE MEGA VOLT will include a variety of courses and challenges.

Saturday holds two events with time to recharge in between. The morning ride is a “Tech Challenge,” while the afternoon’s flow stage is “100% Awesome.”

Sunday’s riding holds a bit of everything with a course dubbed “Tour de Local Fave’s.” It’s 14 miles of the best riding the area has to offer.

And if you’re feeling saddle sore, no worries.

“This year’s Festival will endeavor to grow the off-bike activities while continuing to focus on all aspects of eMTB,” festival organizers wrote.

Despite having timed events, THE MEGA VOLT strives to create a fun, group-focused dynamic.

Interested? Head over to THE MEGA VOLT’s registration page. Registration costs CAD 529 ($385) and includes access to four curated courses, the events mentioned above, post-ride beers, dinner on Friday and Saturday, an industry mingler, professional photography, and on-site complimentary bike charging, among other bennies.

Something to note — only Class 1 eMTBs are allowed. Festival organizers suggest a 500wh battery at minimum. Participants must be 19 or older to register.
