Over the years, Crankworx has established itself as the party…cough…festival of the summer season. For ten days, mountain bikes, music and art take over the village with people travelling from all over to enjoy the revelry. Wether you’re taking part in one of the many races, events or cheering on the athletes from the sidelines, there is a proper way to do Crankworx. Here are the do’s and don’ts of Crankworx Whistler for maximum fun!
DO wear sunscreen
If you are watching any of the events, make sure you have fully slathered yourself in sunscreen. There is little cover from the elements and you wouldn’t be the first to come away with a sun burn!
McCoo’s suggests Sunbum sunscreen. It protects against all the rays and doesn’t contain any hidden ingredients.
DON’T forget an external battery
Your going to need all the battery power you can get to snap, insta story and upload to Facebook. There’s just too much action going on and it would be tragic if friends did see all the fun that you’re having!
McCoo’s suggests the Outdoor Tech Kodiak 2.0 power bank that boasts 6000 mAh of charge capacity!
DO bring sunglasses
Squint and you may miss a triple tail whip!
McCoo’s suggests Oakley polarized sunglasses with PRIZM technology which fine-tunes vision for specific sports and environments.
DO wear proper footwear
Getting to the best spot to view a Crankworx event often means walking and having the proper footwear will get you there safely.
McCoo’s suggests Reef Sandals or People Shoes for footwear that is both functional and stylish.
DON’T carry your belongings in your pockets
You’ll be walking up hills, sitting on grassy knolls and probably ending up at a party or two when the events are all over. Putting your personal belongings in pockets is just asking for it. Smarten up and use a backpack!
McCoo’s suggests a stylish Herschel Backpack with enough room to carry water and snacks.
DO bring an action cam
Make an edit of your Crankworx shenanigans or use an action cam to capture the most insane tricks that you’ve ever seen!
McCoo’s suggests a GoPro with the Karma Grip for smooth shots.
DO wear a hat
As mentioned, it won’t be easy to find shade or cover from the blazing sun at many of the events. Bring a hat to protect yourself from the heat and ward off a case of sun stroke.
McCoo’s suggests a straw Coal sunhat.
The festival of the summer season is just around the corner. With these helpful tips, you are sure to have a memorable time. Need help getting outfitted for all the action? Stop by McCoo’s!
