The Sunshine Coast is slowly making waves in the mountain bike world. Just a short ferry ride away from Vancouver, British Columbia, the coastal towns have witnessed logging, fishing and mining industries both thrive and dive. In the midst of all this, there’s been an insurgence of trails everywhere, from logging road networks to old landfills, that have caught the attention of the communities and riders alike. Nowadays, the weekends see a mass-migration of bikers to Coast Gravity Park and pickup trucks filled with bikes getting on their second ferry to Powell River. Tourism has become the area’s newest industry, one that is welcomed by the communities and thankfully has no signs of slowing down.
