Family road biking on Red Mountain.

Road Biking

Welcome to skinny tire heaven. Our roads less travelled lead riders through a Kootenays terrain more reminiscent of the Tour de France than most destinations. Long winding roads, grueling climbs and hair-raising descents are all accessible; so are chill pedals through the stunning landscapes.
