Exploring Kelowna, Vernon and Penticton Through the Eyes of Ryan Creary

Exploring Kelowna, Vernon and Penticton Through the Eyes of Ryan Creary

Ryan 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, Ryan 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. Always on the hunt for exquisite light, moody scenes and unique angles - “I’m intrigued by the subtle moments of the activities I pursue as well as the cultural side of mountain sports.” “I just love the old burns and different color hues in the Okanagan - Jay Starnino speeding down Jabbarocky on the Rose Valley network.” Kelowna, BC “Jay Starnino and Sabrina Gauthier heading down the Connector Trail towards Rocky Screech at sunset.
