Intro to Mountain Biking

Here is a tour tailored for visitors to Squamish and people interested in experiencing Mountain Bikes for the first time. Come see what all the fuss is about and let our industry certified Guides show you why they love cycling in the Mountain Biking capital of the world, Squamish B.C.

Explore the world's best mountain bike destination...

Over the last few years, Squamish has quickly developed into a hot spot for adventure tourism enthusiasts. Previously only a rest stop between Vancouver and Whistler, Squamish is now a full fledged destination for anyone with a yearning to experience the outdoors on an elevated level. There is no better place to give Mountain Biking a try than Squamish! Mountain Biking will give you a new perspective on outdoor excitement and provide you a new challenge that will test you both mentally and physically. Our industry certified guides know how to get the most out of your trip to Squamish and will make sure your first experience on a mountain bike is a memorable one!

During your Intro to Mountain Biking session, we will teach you the fundamental skills you need to tackle the trails with confidence. Our guides will show you some of the infamous breathtaking trails that reside in our coastal forests that are entirely unique to this area. Squamish hosts the largest remaining intact temperate rainforest in the world.

Everything you need will be provided, including a super high-end Mountain Bike from Norco Bicycles and a Helmet to keep you safe. And no Mountain Bike ride would be complete without a well deserved après at Norman Rudy’s on Squamish’s Best Patio, all included in your cost.

See What Our Clients Say

Had an awesome experience in the Squamish forests with the RideHub team. I never felt like I was in over my head but still managed to do some things on my mountain bike that I never thought were possible. Amazing!

Mike P.Squamish Guided Rides

RideHub is the best! We booked one of their Guided Mountain Bike Tours being beginners at best and had an absolute blast with our guides who were kind, patient, thoughtful and extremely positive leaders. Thank you so much!

What do you need to bring?

Close Toed Shoes

A rental bike is included for your Intro to Mountain Biking tour and we will provide flat bike pedals that are suitable for flat soled riding shoes (Shoe rental is *NOT* available). Your shoes should have a flat surface (avoid hiking boots, etc.) and be laterally supportive. Remember, this is a strenuous physical activity!

Clothing

Since Squamish is in the mountains, the weather can change quickly so it is important that you dress appropriately and also bring the right clothing for inclement weather (tours are not cancelled because it is raining!)

Be sure to dress in layers that are easily removed and stowed (no bulky items). Light rain or wind shells are a great item to have available if the weather changes suddenly.

Avoid jeans or other restrictive clothing and be prepared to sweat a little! We will happily pack your outer layers for you once you get warm.

Hydration & Snacks

Because we will be spending a couple hours on the trails, it is your responsibility to keep yourself hydrated – and it’s easy to forget when you are having fun. We will provide you with a water bottle with fresh water in it. Our mountain bike guides will be making sure you are drinking it!

If you like to snack when doing physical activity, please bring any additional snacks/bars that you will need to consume with you.

Paperwork

An understood & signed Liability Waiver is require from anyone who wishes to participate in a cycling related activity (Guides Rides and Guided Mountain Bike Tours) with the Archer Adventure Company Inc.

Please review our waiver here and if you have any questions regarding it, or the rights you are waiving by signing it, please contact us right away. You will be emailed a link to fill and sign your waiver digitally when you book your experience. Please follow the instructions in a timely manner to avoid delays on the day of your course.

Camera

Don’t forget to bring your camera so you can show your friends back home and on Instabook for Facegram how much fun you are having riding a mountain bike in the coastal forests of BC!
