Family biking in grasslands (Picture BC photo)
Mountain biking and cycling trails in the Thompson Okanagan are as diverse as the region’s topography.
Riders can casually ride winding single-track through sagebrush-covered desert, or plunge down steep rock faces and catch air on huge stunts. There are paths for biking serenely past lakes and rivers and along abandoned rail lines.
Kelowna and Kamloops trails have lured mountain bikers for years. Salmon Arm and Merritt offer epic cross-country rides, with enough gnarly terrain to please freeriders. Don’t like pedalling? Head to the bike parks at Sun Peaks Resort and Silver Star Resort and concentrate on the descents.
Along the Okanagan Wine Route, enjoy biking to nearly 150 wineries scenically nestled near one another. Spend hours cycling the historic Kettle Valley Trail, linking several towns along an old rail bed. Oliver’s International Biking and Hiking Trail offers a gentle cruise along the Okanagan River, while the Mission Creek Greenway winds through downtown Kelowna.
