Fraser Valley

Terrain Sculpted by Glaciers and Rivers

Sculpted over millennia, by glaciers and rivers, the Fraser Valley is one of the amazing regions to explore in the Lower Mainland. Just an hour's drive from Vancouver, here you'll find massive peaks rising above the mighty Fraser River that winds itself through the landscape. Trail-seekers here will discover quality trails that offer both technical challenge and flow, along with great bike shops and après-ride experiences.

The Fraser Valley Mountain Bike Association (FVMBA) cultivates an open and accessible mountain bike community by keeping trails in prime condition and hosting competitive and entertaining events. The club vigorously builds and maintains trails at all of the riding zones surrounding the communities of Abbotsford, Mission, and Chilliwack including Sumas, Vedder, Bear Mountain, and Red Mountain.
