What you'll do

We meet at my favourite coffee place in town. After an introduction, I’ll give you a short preview on what to expect out on trails of Nanaimo. When I plan the days route, I always try to avoid tarmac and fire roads, because that’s not what you’re here for, right?! Depending on the groups level, we have 4 different trail networks to chose from. Each has its own charm and challenges. After we finished our coffee we'll drive out to the trailhead which only takes us a few minutes. Once we get our gear and the bikes ready (usually around 11:30 am), we dive into a day packed with incredible singletrack riding. We will spend approximately 3-4 hrs shredding the trails with a few stops here and there to take pictures and to refuel. After the ride we head back downtown Harbour City Nanaimo and cool down at one of the islands finest micro breweries. Is there anything better than a refreshing post-ride beer?! First one’s on me!

Equipped with a wide range of cycling experience, including participating in several mountain bike stage races such as the B.C. Bike Race or the Swiss Epic, I know what bikers are looking for.

I’m first aid certified and also a member of the Nanaimo Mountain Bike Club.

Where you'll be

Not so far off from the busy mainland hot spots like Whistler or the North Shore, the areas around Mount Benson are offering a big variety of handcrafted singletracks. From cross country to downhill oriented riding, Nanaimo has it all. Let me help you discover the trail gems of Van Isle. By the way... if you’re in need of a place to stay for your time in Nanaimo, check out my wife’s Airbnb called Kara’s Kove: https://airbnb.com/h/karaskove
