A Place to Ride Year-round

Locals have been riding the ridges, benches, and rocks around Penticton since the '70s. Here you will find an endless supply of trails that crank the technical adrenaline or seduce you in the flow with multiple local trail areas like Three Blind Mice, Campbell Mountain, and Skaha Bluffs, all conveniently located within 10-15 minutes from downtown. The last few years have seen a boom in trail and bridge upgrades, signage and extensive mapping, plus growing clubs, guiding services, rentals and bike shops.

Find advanced and intermediate terrain for both all-mountain and downhill riders and sweet, gentle green trails in all the areas for anyone in your group to have fun. Add beaches, two fresh water lakes and a river channel float between them, water sports, rock climbing, 8 craft breweries, and 80+ world-class wineries, all of which make Penticton a great destination both on and off the bike. Penticton is also host to over 30 major annual festivals and events including biking events such as the Okanagan Trestles Tour, the Okanagan Granfondo, and the Kettle Mettle Gravel Fondo.
