For those who love to two-pedal, BC's Kootenay Rockies provides the ultimate backdrop, what with seemingly boundless single-track that showcases the highs and lows of this rugged backcountry terrain â and all the roller-coaster descents in between.
Wandering Wheels, situated in Revelstoke, makes the most of this setting with classic Kootenay Rockies pedals led by experienced, certified guides who know the landscape like the back of their hands. You could, for example, take on a full-day Guided XC Tour to traverse single-track from valley bottom to mountain summit or sign on for Local Guided and Shuttled DH Tours that explore some of the 40 kilometres (25 miles) of downhill mountain bike trials (from fast and flowy to steep technical terrain) surrounding Revelstoke. Cross-country day trips provide a bounty of options, be it the lake and forest expanse and the old school technical descents of The Kuskanax â Kimbol Lake âKillerâ near Nakusp or the over 40 kilometres (25 miles) of cross-country and freeride trails that define the Slocan Valley/New Denver excursion. For downhill adventures, four huge descents and some of the area's best riding can be found along Revelstoke's Downhiller's Delight, while the Mount 7 â Golden adventure offers 1,200 metres (3,937 feet) of vertical descent. There's more to explore âŠ you just need the stamina. And the experts at Wandering Wheels to show you the way. www.wanderingwheels.ca
