Biking, especially mountain biking, has become an increasingly popular sport in Terrace. A core group of riders have been building and maintaining trails in and around town for years.
The best part about riding in this region is the likelihood that bikers will have the trail all to themselves. Also, during the summer, daylight lasts sometimes until 10pm, so it's possible to ride late into the evening.
Where to Bike in Terrace
Both Terrace and nearby suburb Thornhill (on the east side of town, across the old bridge) have hundreds of small trails that loop and curve through its neighbourhoods and parks. Bikers could spend a whole day exploring both areas.
One popular cross-country biking route that's good for intermediate riders and, in some parts, kids, is the Pine Lakes loop. The trail circles through the bush around small, connected and isolated lakes. It's muddy and mostly flat, but is also narrow and technical. It takes approximately two hours to complete the loop.
