A go-to guide for female-focused races, clinics, camps, and courses in BC that are creating more diversity in mountain biking.
Follow this itinerary for a week-long trip exploring the iconic coastal riding destinations of the Fraser Valley, North Vancouver, Sunshine Coast, and Squamish.
This trip is for anyone who has biked in the Sea to Sky a few times and is looking for some new ride ideas. Or for someone who lives in Vancouver and rides the Shore lots, but doesn’t have a huge interest in the bike park or typically venture much past Squamish on the weekends. If this sounds like you, then hopefully you will find something inspiring in the routes and photos below.
The week kicked off with Margus Riga and myself on the Skytrain, headed to the airport. We were throwing around small talk about the weather forecast and the upcoming locations. It struck us, that these winners of the Mountain Biking BC 7 Day Giveaway may be the gluten free, shower twice a day type, that can make any trip less than exhilarating…
The Vancouver, Coast, and Mountains region offers diversity at many levels; the interface between urban and wilderness, accessibility of metropolitan lifestyle with trails right out your back door, difficulty ranging from gnarly to family friendly, a mix of old school and new, and the birthplace of the North Shore style of freeride. It’s a place where any self-respecting mountain biker will feel at home.
