Hustle & Flow on the Cariboo Wagon Trail

Hustle & Flow on the Cariboo Wagon Trail

100 Mile House, the gateway to the Cariboo Chilcotin, has always been a favoured stopping point for travellers and adventurers. Located at the 100 Mile marker from Lillooet and the start of the Cariboo Wagon Trail, it was the route thousands of people travelled during the gold rush years of the late 1800s, into the interior of the province seeking their fortune. Today, it is a service centre for communities on the Chilcotin plateau and a growing trails and mountain bike destination.

Riding Through Ash & Renewal

Riding Through Ash & Renewal

The last two years have been tough on the psyche watching the clouds of smoke and ash build up across the province and in the air around us. With 2017 and now 2018 being the two worst years on record for wild fires, it is understandable to worry as to how our communities, and the trails we love to ride, can withstand the onslaught. In August, amongst the fires and towering clouds of smoke that ranged across the interior regions of BC and as far east as Manitoba, myself and my colleague and friend Thomas Schoen joined up with journalists and professional riders Julia Hoffman and Daniel Schaefer, and professional photographer Paul Masukowitz from German Bike Magazine. They had come to BC to travel and ride with Thomas and myself and to learn about our work through the Aboriginal Youth Mountain Bike Program and First Journey Trails.
