GO NORTH

Australian Mountain Bike - - Contents - Pho­tog­ra­pher: Mark Mackay

Add a vast ar­ray of trails and make them all easy to ac­cess, and put them in a stun­ningly beau­ti­ful lo­ca­tion and you have Van­cou­ver Is­land. Sit­ting off the coast of Bri­tish Columbia, Canada ‘the is­land’, as it is known, has a var­ied ecosys­tem, with craggy bluffs, rain­for­est, beaches and high peaks. It’s tem­per­ate in win­ter com­pared to much of Canada, and ideal around the north­ern sum­mer thanks to long hours of day­light for epic ad­ven­tures.

You’ll find trails that are smooth and easy, to ones that are ragged and wild. All you have to do is choose what to ride.
