Located in the heart of British Columbia’s Interior, along the South and North Thompson River, lies Kamloops—an outdoor enthusiast’s paradise. The rugged Kamloops landscape and 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 Bike Ranch.
Kamloops is known as the birth place of freeride mountain biking with many of the sports’ big names either coming from Kamloops or spending considerable time riding and filming there. With an active mountain bike community, there’s no shortage on areas to ride.
