Whether you are new to mountain biking or are already an advanced rider, our bike tours provide the flexibility for you to explore the mountains at your pace.

Staying at our guest ranch provides the flexibility for you to explore bike routes that match your abilities. This is the perfect scenario for families or groups who need bike tours suited to riders of varying skill levels. We have Big Mountain Enduro trails for riders who want to hone their skills on technical descents and build their endurance with challenging climbs. There’s also an abundance of cross country mountain biking and trail riding available. Regardless of which mountain bike paths you choose, your adventure will be full of the kind of pristine wilderness that came here for.

Nature-Focused Mountain Biking…

For us, mountain biking is about more than the technical aspect of the sport. It’s about truly experiencing the mountains and connecting with nature in a meaningful way. All of the bike routes that radiate from our ranch take you through unbelievable wilderness. This is one of the few places in British Columbia where you can ride mountain bike paths that are packed with nature, not people. We recognize the specialness of this place, and we want you to fully enjoy it. That’s why we’ve set up our bike tours as all inclusive vacations. We focus on the details so you can focus on epic wilderness around you.
