When a pair of Trek big mountain riders had just one week to road trip through British Columbia, they knew they’d have to think outside of the box to truly experience the region.
After all, a week in North America’s mountain biking mecca can go by in a flash—and Trek C3 Project’s Ryan R-Dog Howard and Trek Gravity Girls’ Kathi Kuypers wanted to make the most of it. They were constrained by time, but hitting all the best trails was a non-negotiable. So rather than ramping back their plans, they chose Trek's electric mountain bike, Rail.
They started in Squamish and wound their way to Kelowna, and over the course of their single week managed to hit such epic spots as Kamloops, Revelstoke, and more—and Kathi even caught her first glimpse of a bear.
