Mountain biking began to take off in North Vancouver in the early 1980s, and by 2000, Mountain Bike Magazine acclaimed this wilderness-meets-city region as the "best riding spot ever."
From downtown Vancouver, it's just a 20-minute drive via the Lions Gate Bridge or Second Narrows Bridge.
Terrain & Stunts
The natural ambience is spectacular: winding, steep trails with boulders, logs, and wooden bridges to navigate over or around, amid huge, shadowy trees on the side of the North Shore Mountains. Riders relish the technical challenges of teeter-totters and ladder bridges maintained by the volunteers of the North Shore Mountain Bike Association (NSBMA).
Pro Mountain Bikers
Trails connect all over the North Shore, and even in residential areas, it's never far to the next trailhead. No wonder top-ranked pro mountain bikers like Wade Simmons and Danika Schroeter call the North Shore home. Some of the best-known North Shore areas for mountain biking include Mount Seymour, Mount Fromme, and Cypress Mountain.
