MOUNTAIN BIKING'S MECCA

Explore the beautiful west coast of BC. Get a taste of the riding areas that the
BC Bike Race is famous for and be introduced to some of our local favourites!

April 27th – May 4th 2019

Mountain Biking's Mecca

Explore the wild west coast of British Columbia by ferry, bus, and bike as we dive into the lush rainforest that is home to the origins of hand-built singletrack. This is the motherland. You will cross the Salish Sea from the mainland to Vancouver Island, breathing the salty ocean air and keeping an eye on the water for signs of whales. Once on the island you will experience some of our favourite ‘backyard’ trails and some of the gems we incorporate into the world-renowned BC Bike Race.

The coastal towns of North Vancouver, Cumberland, Powell River, Sechelt, Squamish, and Whistler are brimming with the kind of hand-built singletrack that dreams are made of. Ripping through the brown ribbons that lace their way through the abundantly green forests will bring a smile to your face and make your heart pound. This is where it all began – and this is where you belong!

Finding out I actually could ride 6 days straight on all new trails every day without getting mangled while thoroughly enjoying the company of all new friends was awesome! Seeing a part of my province I'd long desired to visit, and doing it on two wheels, in the company of many stoked local hosts, was awesome. Eating about 4000 calories a day of delicious food prepared by someone else but not gaining an ounce, was awesome. Daily yoga, great coffee and perfect weather, was awesome. Losing my shuttling virginity, although at first seemingly distasteful, turned out to be awesome. Oh, yeah, and riding some of the best trails I've ever seen was super awesome!
