spectacular scenery and fun with friends. Why not combine stunning
scenery, beautiful surroundings and everlasting memories with a good workout?
Join us as we explore Whistler's famous mountain bike terrain and turn a normal
bike ride into a life long memory.
Have two wheels, will travel. In Whistler, from April all the way
through to the end of October, mountain biking is the name of the game. No
bike, no problem...
Whistler mountain bike rentals are available.
The Whistler valley has incredible trails ranging from easy paved
and gravel paths for the tame at heart, all the way to fall-line downhill
trails for riders with big cojones. With a variety of options ranging from
self-guided bicycle adventures within the valley to guided trips in the
valley and in the mountain bike park, there are mountain bike options for
Whistler’s amazing valley trail weaves in and out of beautiful
neighbourhoods and parks all the way from Function Junction to Emerald. On
this scenic ride you’ll see all of Whistler’s amazing lakes like Alpha Lake,
Nita Lake, Alta Lake, Lost Lake, and finally super-chilly Green Lake!
Moving onto something slightly more advanced, the doubletrack weaving
around Lost Lake gives you the sightseeing capability of the valley trail
with some added dips, doodles, and hills to check out some awesome views.
Hop into Lost Lake for a swim after riding the slightly more technical
blue-rated Zappa trails, all named after songs by… you guessed it, Frank
Zappa. “Peaches en Regalia,” “Zoot Allures” and “Son of Mr. Green Genes”
are just a small selection of the riding options at Lost Lake.
Both sides of the Whistler valley are flanked by incredible classic
singletrack trails like the Flank Trail, Kill Me Thrill Me, A River Runs
Through It, Tunnel Vision and epic trail Comfortably Numb. There are a
handful of local companies who provide guiding services on short or epic
bike rides for visitors who are feeling up to an adventure.
The real gem of Whistler’s bike scene is the Whistler Downhill
Bike Park. It has trails ranging from double black rides for the Evil
Kneivel in you, and its lift-served access attracts visitors from all over
the world. Even beginners will have a great time in the bike park riding
trails like Easy Does It and Crank It Up. There are even intermediate
options from the top of Garbanzo chair, so there’s something for everyone
even from Whistler’s alpine.
In short, it’s time to get out to Whistler and embrace bicycles and all
the fun that goes along with them! See you on the trails (and don’t forget
an extra inner tube for your bike tires!)
