|Dates:||July 17-21, 2017 AVAILABLE|
August 3-7, 2017 AVAILABLE
Four full days of riding the best XC trails around! For those who like the long, challenging climb just as much as the fun, flowy descent. Ride Revelstoke's world class XC trail networks and signature alpine singletrack and experience a big day ride in Golden, hammering out a local epic! Bring lots of energy along for this trip; we will pedal hard for four days straight! Don't worry though, there's a reason our locally brewed beer is known as "Revelstoke's official energy drink!"
Check in, get comfortable and get stoked! Check-in starts at 4pm, dinner will be served at 7pm. Meet your guides and discuss your rides while getting acquainted with some delicious offerings from our local brewery. Take advantage of our shop to build your bikes or fine tune them for the rides ahead.
Enjoy a hearty breakfast and grab a lunch to go. This morning we will head out to the Mt. Macpherson Trails for a big ride on some of the best singletrack in BC! We'll link up all the best trails here and you'll see the better part of the entire network over a 35 km ride (give or take a few!), a ride not for the faint of heart! We'll have lunch on the trails and finish the ride by rolling right into the Big Eddy Pub, a local's favourite hangout, for some après snacks and drinks (not included in your trip cost). We'll head back to the lodge where we'll have dinner at 7pm.
We'll start out early today with breakfast followed by a drive through Roger's Pass in Glacier National Park to Golden, BC. Our closest neighbour to the east, Golden is home to endless amounts of fun, flowy singletrack trails in the Moonraker and CBT areas just outside of town. We will ride a huge loop right from town, totalling about 35kms which will feature some long, challenging climbs and some super-fun rollercoaster descents along with a pretty cool cliff-side section on the edge of a huge canyon! We'll have lunch on the trails today and we'll stop off at our favourite downtown Golden eatery for a quick après snack (not included in your trip cost) before tackling the drive back to Revelstoke for dinner at 7pm.
Today will be a special one! Fuel up with a hearty breakfast and grab a lunch to go. We will be heading 50 km's north of Revelstoke (to pretty much the middle of nowhere!) to ride the alpine epic Keystone Standard Basin Trail. This is easily our favourite trail ever! We'll spend the day rolling through incredible alpine meadows with huge views in all directions. Our lunch break will be at the halfway point of this ride at the Keystone cabin. We'll shred this trail back out, for a total of 23kms, and have some cold beers and snacks back at the truck. More après snacks await our return to the lodge, and then get ready to hit the town! Visit some local shops, check out the live nightly music in the plaza and enjoy dinner out at one of our favourite Revelstoke restaurants (tonight's dinner is not included in your trip costs).
After another delicious breakfast we will load up and drive to the Frisby Ridge XC trailhead. Totalling about 25kms, this ride starts with a long but gradual climb to the alpine, winding through huge old growth forest and pristine flowery meadows! We will have lunch next to an alpine lake at the end of the trail and then shred back down this beautiful ribbon of alpine singletrack. We'll enjoy a cold beer back at the parking lot while taking in even more great views above town, and then head back to the lodge for après. Like all good things, our time together must come to an end, say good-byes and get ready for checkout by 4pm.
