British Columbia Mountain Biking
Thanks to British Columbia’s mountainous nature, this Canadian province is a hub for experienced mountain bikers and those just getting started. The number of options available for mountain biking in British Columbia is practically overwhelming. There’s the Fernie area, Nelson, famous Whistler Mountain, and Cheakamus Lake. Then there are the places a little closer to the city hubs, like Vancouver Island and North Vancouver. If you want to find all the best spots (and some secret spots too), hire a guide to take you on a British Columbia mountain biking tour!
If you’ve always wanted to learn how to mountain bike, North Shore is an excellent place to start. All paths are clearly marked and easily accessible. Hire a locally made Rocky Mountain bike, and start exploring. A guide will lead you to the most picturesque and historic spots along the way, including even some Canadian rainforest. Start in Shaketown – you’ll eventually end up in Seymour. Descend the Fisherman’s Trail to the Seymour River, visit the Lynn Canyon Suspension Bridge that hovers at 160-feet about Lynn Creek, and more. The whole area around Mount Seymour is spectacular!
Whistler is a household name in Canada, and for good reason. Whistler is home to Cranxwork and the most iconic bike park in the world. People who come here tend to leave spellbound by the insanely beautiful mountain scenery. It’s located on the “Sea to Sky” road, which is handy because it links Whistler to other biking areas of British Columbia. Your guide will teach you how to mountain bike on some natural, technical trails in the Whistler Valley. Be sure to do the “Top of the World” trail.Read More ...
