The Mountain Bike Capital of Canada
With a deep history of biking on old railway beds, miners’ trails and whisky running routes, Rossland is one of the founding bike destinations in BC and is known as the Mountain Bike Capital of Canada. Rossland has a full-time, paid trails crew that maintains and labels our huge myriad of trails.
From the 2020 built Dragons’ Back Flow trail at Red Mountain, to the World-Epic Seven Summits Ridge trail, the region has a bit of riding for everyone.
“A bad day on a mountain bike always beats a good day in the office.”
