Guided Mountain Biking

Make the most of your mountain bike trip with help from Rising Sun Guides. We`ve been riding the trails of Southwest B.C. for over 20 years and look forward to sharing our experience with you. With so many trails to choose from, the key is finding the right trails for your group, linking them together and adjusting to weather conditions.

Every great ride is even better with a swim in a mountain lake, incredible viewpoints and the best local food either before or after. Our guides will tailor each day to make the most of wherever we decide to go both on and off the bike.

The Concept

We offer full service guiding with the goal of helping you have the best possible holiday. Your guide will meet you at your accommodation in the morning and head to the trails from there. We usually start at 9am but flexible depending on where we decide to ride and what time you want to get rolling. From there we`ll ride amazing trails all day, potentially stop off at a lake, viewpoint, short hike or restaurant then get back to your accommodation.

On some days we`ll be able to ride directly to the trails and or if we`re planning to go further afield,  we`ll provide door to door transport.

Ultimately each day of your trip is fully tailored to what you want to do, how much riding you`re interested in and then supplemented with stops at amazing places in the sea to sky corridor.

Multi Day Trips

The best way to make the most of the region is to spend more time here and we highly recommend staying for at least a week if you can. Your days with Rising Sun are generally pretty active so riding with us 4-5 days out of a 7 day stretch is a great way to go. This way you`ll see a tonne of amazing trails but also have a couple of more relaxed days to rest up or check out the Whistler bike park independently.

Sample Itinerary

Options:

  • Rest / bike park days can be floating in your itinerary and adjusted to suit weather conditions after you arrive.
  • We can arrange any length trip with as many or as few guided days as you would like.
  • Most days will also involve stops at lakes, viewpoints or other spectacular places of interest en-route to or from trail riding.
  • We can assist with airport transfers, accommodation bookings and other activities such as hiking or rafting.
  • All of our trips are designed specifically for you and your group and all elements can be tailored to your interests.

Pricing

Our base rate is $600CAD per day for a group of up to 4 riders. This includes a full guided day starting at ~9am, returning to your hotel typically between 3-5pm. Some days may end up being shorter, others longer and start/finish times will be adjusted as needed / requested.
