Why do we require an application?

Our application process is in response to two of the most common questions our Riders have prior to booking a trip with us:

1) Am I skilled/fit enough to participate in this Ride?
2) Will the other people on my Ride be skilled/fit enough?

Ensuring that you - and the other Riders on your Ride - are a good fit for the Ride selected is of paramount importance to us. We want to help you pick the Ride that's perfect for you, and ensure that everyone booked on a Ride is on the right Ride for them. That's why we want to know a bit more about you - your mountain biking history, where you ride, how often, etc... - before we take your money.

We review every application and if, based on your responses, we think you're a good fit, we'll approve your application and you'll receive a link to place a deposit. If we think you might not be a good fit (either too skilled or not skilled enough for the Ride you chose), then we'll give you a call to discuss your preferences in greater detail.

Please note: our application process isn't about excluding anyone, or making anyone feel like they're not 'good enough' to participate in one of our Rides. It's about ensuring that you end up on the right Ride for you, with people of similar skill, fitness and riding preferences. In the end this ends up being a much better experience for everyone.

Three trail systems. One day of awesome riding.

What’s better than a full day of mountain biking? This tour will take you through three trails systems; Strathgartney, Bonshaw and Brookvale. Perfect for intermediate and   advanced riders that don’t mind spending 5 or 6 hours in the saddle. We’ll be sure to   provide you with a nutritious lunch and snacks along the way to keep you energized! 

If you require rental bikes, they can be booked through our partner, Outer Limit Sports - http://www.ols.ca/mystore/bike-rental-book-now. They offer both full suspension and hard tail bikes. 

IS THIS RIDE FOR YOU?

You are an experienced mountain biker who loves a challenging ride and doesn't mind spending 5-6 hours riding.
