Mountain Biking in British Columbia in Photos


We head back to British Columbia and take Scotty Laughland along to sample some of BC’s greatest hits for our ‘British Columbia in photos’ feature

Ticking BC off the bucket list

Iconic. Few places hold the same mantle as British Columbia. Embedded in mountain bike folklore it was at the forefront of the freeride movement with pionering riders such as Tippie, Simmons, and Schley taking audacious lines at the infamous Northshore and Kamloops. Growing up flicking through magazines and watching movies you stumbled over BC at every turn of the page or press of the play button; nowhere drew the same lust or desire to place my wheels upon its dirt.

The scene has, of course, moved on since the freeride heydays but as a sport it’s never been stronger, becoming more accessible with rider numbers swelling on the trails; just look at the success story of the Whistler bike park… and whilst it may quite rightly draw the masses, it’s the trails outside of the park that really show BC’s true flavour. Tall pines shrouded in lichen, lush green ferns, and snow capped peaks. You’ll be left blown away by the depth in the trail portfolio here and instantly understand why there is so much hype surrounding this place.
