Canada Mountain Biking Season
Canada mountain biking is a year round activity in many communities on the west coast of Canada. However, in general, the peak mountain biking season in Canada runs from May to September. Some communities have developed mountain biking parks and some ski mountains transform into mountain bike parks in the summer. Many biking communities support bike repair shops, biking events and bike clubs.
For many riders, mountain biking is best enjoyed in the wilderness regions of the country following recreation trails, spur roads and gravel access roads. However, in Canada, many mountain biking trails are shared routes with hikers, backpackers, horseback riders and atvs. Consequently, when travelling on gravel access roads on your way to staging areas (trailheads) please watch for large vehicles and 4x4s.
Mountain Bike Resorts
During the summer months many of the ski hills transform themselves into mountain bike resorts. The ski runs become downhill mountain biking trails. The chair lifts carry mountain bikes and riders instead of skiers and snowboarders. Bring your own bike if you have one. If not, mountain bike rentals are available on most ski hills and in many of the medium to large mountain biking communities in Canada.
Mountain Bike Tours
Canada mountain biking tour groups operate in a few regions in Canada. Most of them are found near the very popular mountain biking destinations. Tour groups include a guide, bike, lessons, body armour and meals if necessary. Tours and guides are good for beginners and intermediate mountain bikers as they usually include detailed lessons with lots of instruction.
