What you'll need

image48

What do I need?


A Mountain Bike that is in good working order.


 For Winter a Fatbike (that's a bike with tires 3.8 inches wide or wider) that is in good working order.


A Canadian Standards Approved Bike  Helmet (and something to keep your ears warm in winter)


Clothing suitable for riding in cold weather. Easiest way to describe this is gear for high energy activity in cold weather but contact us for advice ahead of time.


Cycling gloves, because nobody likes sore hands. specific winter gloves can be purchased at most bike shops but other winter gloves can be used.


A backpack or frame bag with enough room for some of your layers, snacks, spares etc etc. A Spare inner-tube for your specific wheel size is mandatory. Hydration packs such as camelbak don't always work very well due to the hoses freezing.


A sense of humor. There will be some falling off but mostly into soft snow.
