Hey man, I'm down. I'm not going to be back on the island until the December, but if you still got something going I'd be down to lend a hand.

No I'm new to Victoria from Alberta, but looking to explore the region. I'll DM you when I get back.

What's the riding like in the Comox/Campbell River area in mid/end March like? I'm going to Comox for a few days and I am wondering if it is worth bringing my bike out from Ontario and taking a few days to ride.

Lots of riding in Cumberland trails may be from wet to semi wet to really wet but snow level should be low enough to have lots of trail to ride.

100% worth it to bring your bike.

Might be a long shot but with the amount of bike shops around, might be able to catch some demo days to save bringing your own bike and also trying new bikes. Just an idea.

But if no luck on demo days, definitely bring your own bike and ride as much as you can

I'd definitely go with this, or just look to rent a bike while you're out (might cost just as much as bringing yours on a plane).

Lots of good shops around town, with lots of great rides. They'll probably help give you some tips on what trails are running good at the time, too

Hey all, myself and a few mates are planning a summer bike trip through BC and were toying with coming to the island. I've been hearing rumors that all the really rowdy stuff that is no longer allowed on the Northshore has migrated to the island, however I haven't had a ton of luck finding them. I've mostly been finding AM/XC trails and am looking for more intense DH orientated stuff, tech like skinnies, teeters, rock rolls and drops is good, so are jumps up to ~25' (Although I always like to be tempted by more XD) we can ride or hike up but the focus of the trip is on the descents.

Any pointers on where I should be looking?
Big thanks in advance!

Mt prevost first. Best for steep fast downhill

Mt benson in Nanaimo. Trails like Roller coaster. Max power. All good fast dh trails

Sweet, looked into it and these places look like the jam! Definitely more in line of what I was searching for. Thanks for the hook up mates, blessings of the loam gods upon thee.

As for south isle; Quimper at Harbourview in Sooke is as tech as it gets, especially if its wet. Then there's some stuff around Bear if you look a bit with some of the better rock rolls on the island.

Anyone know if there are any new trails in the works for Mount Washington this summer?
