British Columbia

The Ultimate BC

June-Sep.13 daysSkill:EXPERT 8/9

SKILL LEVEL 8 - EXPERT

You are comfortable riding a variety of singletrack which may include tight trees, mud, loose rocks and sand and are comfortable doing so on aggressive terrain with little braking. You rarely, if ever, walk.

You often hop over obstacles such as roots and rocks that less advanced riders may wheel lift over.  Small drops are no issue for you and you are comfortable with having both wheels leave the ground. You are comfortable and confident with a front wheel lift and rear wheel lift to get up and over larger obstacles (up to 6 inches) such as roots and rocks that are not rollable.

If you have ridden a bike park, you are comfortable on all green, blue, black and double black trails.

There's a reason why we called this our 'Ultimate' BC trip: it's 13 days of some of the best mountain biking on the planet - in interior BC, far from the crowds and madness of better-known places like Whistler. Instead, interior BC offers big, epic cross-country trails like Seven Summits and Keystone Basin, along with cool mountain towns to kick back in after an amazing day of riding.
