Wilderness riding at its best: no lift line-ups, no crowded parking lots

Each day will begin with a visit to a local bike shop where a resident expert and guide will introduce the mountain - followed by hours of riding. You will also experience some of the best hospitality and arts & culture in the region. Accommodations, breakfast, and lunch will be provided, and each evening you can enjoy some great locally owned restaurants and presentations by guest speakers. Details:

Your first two days of riding will be at Pidherny and Otway, two trail networks characterized by well-maintained flowy single track, bermed corners, jumps, drops, and skinnies.
While staying in Prince George, you will be hosted by the University of Northern British Columbia. This 25-year-old campus is surrounded by forest and a huge network of single and double-track multi-use trails.
On day three, the bus will take you to Burns Lake, BC, the home of Boer Mnt. and a network of trails designed by Gravity Logic, Jay Hoots, and IMBA Canada.
After riding Boer Mnt., the tour will head to Smither's BC to ride the trail networks on and around Hudson's Bay Mountain. I can almost guarantee that you have never ridden a jump like this:
Given that these rides are in black and grizzly bear country, all riders must complete UNBC's online Bear Awareness and Safety course prior to joining the tour.
