RIDE NORTH

THE NEW FRONTIER

Welcome to Northern British Columbia, the new frontier
of destination mountain biking.

July 25th – Aug 2nd 2019

The New Frontier

In the summer, the days are long up North and our goal at BC Bike RIDE is to max out each day with as much fun as humanly possible, right until the last embers of the campfire burn out. Together, we will be a nomadic tribe of fun loving mountain bikers exploring the great Northern Corridor of Highway 16 – Prince George, Burns Lake, Smithers, and Terrace.

Geographically, Northern British Columbia is larger than California, yet there are more bears than people! The people are hearty, warm and adventurous. The bears… they are wild and they roam free. The mountain bikers you will meet are proud of their handcrafted trails and they are excited to introduce you to their stashes of prime singletrack that relatively few people have ever ridden.

[I loved] everything, frankly. Being among people crazy enthusiastic about mountain biking. Smithers was my favourite destination for the actual trails. I loved the campsites by lakes where we could jump in after the riding. Loved the on the spot tips and coaching. Thought I would never have the chance to ride the northern community trails. A dream come true. The Smithers brewery very nice touch and change up to camping for a few hours. Felt very spoiled. Loved your very professional and numerous staff. Nothing was too much. And the photos - unbelievable!
