It’s no secret that Canada is chock full of hot spots for mountain biking maniacs. There are clubs and terrains for every level of biker.

Powell River (bikepowellriver.ca) has upgraded their trails tremendously over the last ten years. You can go to mountainbikingbc.ca (mountainbikingbc.ca) for additional trip-planning resources.

The Frisby Ridge Trail, just outside Revelstoke (bikerevelstoke.org), is also one of B.C.’s most scenic alpine rides. And Revelstoke has a great cross-country network at Mount Macpherson for all skill levels.

Fernie has a  well-marked trail variety and scenic ski-resort bike park. Whitehorse has extended summer daylight so you can bike well into the evening on over 800 kilometers of trails.

 Next on the list, Alberta is a must-go location with Canmore Nordic Centre, the great G8 and Horseshoe loops and rewarding cross-country runs with switchbacks, mellow descents and fantastic mountain views.

Further east, la belle province is another amazing location for mountain biking.

Vallée Bras-du-Nord is an outdoor mecca with the most beautiful and challenging single-track along the Neilson River. East Hereford and its Circuits Frontières trails are almost as remote as it gets. It’s well-signed but becomes more challenging as you progress from the valley to the top of Mount Hereford.

Whistler, Squamish and North Vancouver are some of the most popular and well-known mountain biking stops in Canada. But if you really want to find some intense trails British Columbia is where it’s at. Vernon and Silver Star, Sun Peaks and Burns Lake are a few of the happening places for mountain biking.

British Columbia is a plethora of different terrains. Rain forests, fields and meadows, waterfalls, woodlands, rocky trails, cascading twists and turns of excitement and pure adventure are all to be expected of Canada’s most concentrated region of mountain biking trails.

Not only is the biking awesome in British Columbia, but the culture screams all things mountain biking as well. The local breweries and small businesses are full of friendly, fresh-faced people.

The bottom line is that Canada is more than mountain biker friendly. There are literally hundreds of clubs and mountain biking maniacs hand-building the most exhilarating trails.
