Video: Destination Trail - Chilcotins with the Coastal Crew

Aug 17, 2015
by I Am Specialized  

Welcome to Destination Trail, a series that follows riders as they travel the globe, hunting for its greatest trails. Some of what they find might be renowned, some undiscovered, but that's the point. When expectations and attitudes are stripped away, only the essence of mountain biking remains. This is where adventure thrives, and it's here that memories are made.

In this episode, we follow the Coastal Crew's Kyle Norbraten, Curtis Robinson, and Dylan Dunkerton as they head to the Chilcotin Mountains of British Columbia in search of natural inspiration for their Coast Gravity Park. First traveling by floatplane, then horses, a hike-a-bike, and a long descent, the Chilcotins proved to be remote and isolated, with many of the trails being carved out from centuries of horse and wildlife use. In other words, it took some hard work to get out there, but once the crew started riding, they quickly realized that they not only had these epic trails all to themselves, but the stunning views, sprawling vistas, and jagged ridgelines also existed for their eyes only. It's mountain biking in its purist form—unplugged, adventurous, and completely outside of your comfort zone.

 This is the best Coastal Crew edit, their first time there and they rode the sweetest shit. Nice riding and amazing filming. Yes its obviously a commercial from the product placement but, whatever roach. FYI the dirt out there in the Chilcotin's eats pussy for breakfast, BYOB.

 Are there any places like this in Australia? Wide, open trails and scenery until the horizon? Feel like every trail i've ridden is singletrack surrounded by trees. Just want to go to Canada or New Zealand!
