Our itinerary makes the most of the riding time while keeping the driving to a minimum. We’ll stay in comfortable lodge accommodations and we’ll refuel daily with delicious local food and brews. With world class riding in Revelstoke, Golden, New Denver, Kicking Horse and SilverStar bike parks, and more, this truly is the ultimate enduro mountain bike vacation in British Columbia!
