The rugged Kamloops landscape, formed from ancient lava flows and volcanic debris is a mountain biker’s paradise. The semi-arid climate creates the perfect landscape for four season riding – from classic single track to high-speed alpine downhill to winter biking. Visitors are spoiled for choices with the sage-scented hills, hero dirt, pine-treed forests, windy hills and Canada’s largest Municipal bike park, the Bike Ranch.

Kamloops is known as the birthplace of freeride mountain biking with many of the sports’ big names either coming from Kamloops or spending considerable time riding and filming there. With an active mountain bike community, there’s no shortage on areas to ride.

CRAFT BREWERIES

Riding Kamloops’ trails can be thirsty work. Thankfully with our variety of craft brew options you never have to drink the same beer twice. Drink your way through our local craft brew options, or visit a tap house and experience craft beer creations from places near and far.

When downtown, soak in the sunshine on the Noble Pig patio, which resides in a converted swimming pool or visit Diana, the black lab, on the Red Collar Patio while you sip suds and enjoy a game of Jenga.

Visit the newly opened, railroad inspired, Iron Road Brewing in the heart of uptown. Treat yourself to some tacos while sipping on a tasting flight.

Red Beard Café, located in a bright teal building on the eclectic North Shore of the city, has 13 rotating taps of some of the best beer from the province and beyond!

Kamloops has a great variety of bike-friendly hotels and motels offering secure storage options for your valuable steed so you can sleep soundly and be ready for another day of riding the trails.   Learn more.
