Has BC perfected the art of Bike Parks?

Posted on May 22, 2024 by Reuben Krabbe

Canadians sometimes struggle to really brag about our virtues. We know it’s a horrible habit, and we’re sorry about that too. Maybe there’s one thing we are bold enough to claim. As far as bike parks go, we’re crushing it.

We’re told there’s moments in life you’ll never forget; the birth of a child, or remembering where you were when humans first walked on the moon. Mountain bikers have that moment railing a perfectly crafted berm, gaining view of snow capped peaks, hearing your friend hot on the tail, yelling from behind to boost the next lip. Yea, you remember that moment don’t you? Which BC Bike Park was that at?

And then, why did you make every decision in life around that moment?

Where did you land on the same chair as your idol, and get to take a lap in the shadow of a legend?

Engineered for Airtime

The perfect place to get airborne is wherever the builders have experimented and refined jump-design more than anywhere else. BC bike parks have thousands of local, free range, hand sculpted, artisanal jumps, and they’re being re-worked just in time for our spring openings.

Converts Welcome

From rentals, to lessons to, progressive trail selection, every skill level can find the trail to compliment their existing skills, and when they’re ready, take the next pedal stroke.
