When most people think of biking in Whistler, they think of the Whistler Bike Park.
With thousands of mountain bike riders coming down more than 50 runs at what many consider North America’s best bike park, it’s easy to see why.
But Whistler was a top mountain bike destination before bikes were loaded on chairlifts. For those who want to earn their descents, there are hundreds of kilometres of loamy trails and rock faces that wind through the old-growth forests surrounding the village, including Comfortably Numb – named an Epic ride by the International Mountain Bike Association.
Want to watch the best freeriders in the world? Whistler is the place to do it during the Kokanee Crankworx festival in August.
Cycling shines here too amid mountain scenery, from deep valleys to idyllic trails. The Valley Trail is an easy way for cyclists and families to get around Whistler. Roadies looking for more challenging routes will love the views and challenge of popular rides such as Whistler to D’Arcy or the Tour de Whistler.
