So you’ve arrived in Abbotsford, and are yearning to explore the area’s great outdoors on two wheels?
Maybe hit up some trails with friends before settling in a pub for a meal and well-earned ale?
Abbotsford is the perfect base-camp to explore an understated hub of world-class mountain biking, which has made B.C. an internationally renowned destination for the sport.
Abbotsford has a multitude of biking options for all levels. From casual, family-friendly pedals around urban parklands, to technically advanced, adrenalin-inducing downhill descents and free-ride flow.
If you’re looking for rewarding, technical, single-track descents, try Sumas Mountain area. Shuttling is also possible for those of you who enjoy throwing yourself down a mountain on some bigger suspension. If you drive 15 minutes north of Abbotsford, you’ll find three B.C. cup trails along with extensive networks of XC and downhill riding on Red and Bear Mountains. Extend your drive 30 minutes and you can reach two more popular ride destinations: Woodlot and Vedder. They provide access to more than 30 additional trails for intermediate to advanced riders. Wherever you choose to ride, you won’t be disappointed.
In addition, the Abbotsford BMX club hosts a permanent outdoor track at Exhibition Park and operates one of Canada’s premier indoor facilities annually from November to February at Ag-Rec.
