7 Places to Ride in Revelstoke with Photographer Ryan Creary

7 Places to Ride in Revelstoke with Photographer Ryan Creary

This week Ryan Creary shares some of his favourite spots to ride in Revelsoke.  Ryan Creary grew up on the east coast of Canada in New Brunswick. This was where he first discovered mountain biking; he used to race on the rooty and soggy coastal bush trails around the province’s local circuit. After university, Creary migrated west to British Columbia, and he now calls Revelstoke home. The high alpine trails that surround the town are one of the reasons he loves Revelstoke so much. “I love to ride my bike both up and down; it’s like ski touring for me. Revelstoke is surrounded by long logging road climbs with amazing downhills and some of the best high alpine singletrack in western Canada”, he says. Ryan is very passionate about the outdoors, and when he’s not taking photographs, he spends his time biking, kayaking and climbing in the summers. A long time contributor to Bike Magazine and many other mountain bike publications around the world, Ryan has been a full time professional mountain sports photographer for almost 20 years “Moody trails in the morning mist.

Dropping into Kamloops, sleet pelted the windshield as if the coastal rains were unwilling to let us go. We were on our way to meet Lisa Tedesco and her partner Marco van der Wilk, the winners of this year’s Bikes and Beer tour. It would be difficult to find a more deserving candidate: for the past 15 years, Lisa has been a dedicated member of the mountain bike community.

Riding Revelstoke with photographer Bruno Long

Riding Revelstoke with photographer Bruno Long Bruno Long is a professional adventure sports photographer based in Revelstoke, BC. Originally hailing from New Brunswick, he quickly left the East Coast behind after graduating from university and began his hunt for tall mountains and deep snow. After a 7-year stint in Jasper National Park, he relocated to Revelstoke with the hopes of carving out a life as a photographer in the Columbia Mountains. Working numerous jobs to help feed his healthy outdoor activity addiction, he also worked tirelessly on crafting his skills as a photographer and occasional writer. In the past several years, that hard work has paid off, with Long becoming a regular contributor to many ski and mountain bike magazine worldwide, including becoming a Senior Photographer with Bike Magazine and Forecast Magazine. The jumps on Boulder Mountain’s Hotdog Hallway were created with a small amount of money and a large amount of effort. Many hours were spent cutting, digging and shaping this area to give the Revelstoke DH community a nice set of jumps to improve their overall jumping skills. Local ripper Stu Dickson shows that all the hard work eventually paid off with a great set of large tabletop jumps in a beautiful setting. In the fall, a local trail area very close to town slowly turns into a beautiful little oasis. The CP Trails are a quick hit directly prom town and are home to a few special spots full of deciduous trees that leave the entire area glowing yellow with leaves. Turn that photo into a black and white image and you are given a unique...
RULES OF THE ROAD; Trail Tripping Through British Columbia’s Kootenay Mountains

RULES OF THE ROAD; Trail Tripping Through British Columbia’s Kootenay Mountains

One of the oldest saloons in British Columbia and by far the oldest in Rossland, the name comes from a steam-powered helicopter plane constructed by Lou Gagnon, an ambitious Gold Rush-era inventor. Built of iron, wood, brass, canvas and piano wire, Gagnon imagined the “Flying Steamshovel” would carry ore down from the steep slopes of nearby Red Mountain. It didn’t. The craft first took flight in February of 1902, leaving the ground and wobbling a few stories skyward before crashing near the very spot we’re currently putting back burgers and beers.
