Both for mountain bikers and cyclists, Northern BC offers spectacular, scenic terrain to ride, thanks to its vast wilderness and sparse population.

Grab a mountain bike and explore Northern BC’s huge network of loamy trails. Enthusiastic mountain bike communities have built so many trails it isn’t uncommon to ride without seeing anyone all day – and long summer days make it possible to ride until 10pm.

Head to Burns Lake and discover why this small town is becoming a major mountain bike destination. Don’t miss Prince George’s seven riding areas. Smithers and Terrace offer extensive mountain bike networks that feature both easy single-track and daunting black diamond trails filled with stunts.

For cyclists, a spirit of adventure pervades the open roads of Northern BC. Enjoy amazing scenery while biking alongside the Skeena River. Or take BC Ferries to Haida Gwaii and cycle past sandy beaches while enjoying the laid-back island atmosphere.
