Things you need to know
When is the best time to go?
After the skiers leave! The mountain bike season gets underway in May.
What's a typical tour itinerary?
• Meet up with your group at the designated location
• Check your bike! Make sure everything’s calibrated
• Anywhere from 10 to 40 miles of world-class mountain biking!
• On multi-day tours you can count meals, camping and a support truck being covered by your guiding service
• Depending on the group size there may be one or more guides
What about bad weather?
Inclement weather can very rarely get in the way of your mountain bike tour, so ask your guide or touring service for more information.
Group sizes and pricing?
All group sizes have a low guide to guest ratio, so you can rely on having the best time possible. Of course, as the group size increase, the cost decreases, which is a great reason to ride with friends and family!
Vancouver International Airport (YVR) is your best choice for flying. Once there you can rent a car, or book a shuttle service to take you the remaining distance.
New trails are built faster than you can ride them
Legendary local trails like Half Nelson and Rupert are mainstays for any visiting rider, but there are other treats begging to be discovered like Entrails and Crouching Squirrel Hidden Monkey too. Chances are there’ll be something bigger and better by the time you get there — that’s how quickly the community rallies, builds and maintains their beloved terrain. After a day or two there, you’ll be hooked and think about extending your visit!
