Get Shredding

The rugged Kamloops landscape—formed from ancient lava flows and volcanic debris—is a mountain biker’s paradise. The semi-arid climate creates the perfect landscape for four season riding—from classic singletrack to high-speed alpine downhill to winter biking. Visitors are spoiled for choices with the sage-scented hills, hero dirt, pine-treed forests, windy hills and Canada’s largest Municipal bike park, the Kamloops Bike Ranch.

Kamloops is known as the birthplace of freeride mountain biking with many of the sports’ big names either coming from Kamloops or spending considerable time riding and filming here. With an active mountain bike community, there’s no shortage of areas to ride.
