Mountain Bike Ride




Core6 Environmental would like to invite BEST 2022 participants to join us for a mountain bike ride on Whistler’s fabulous trails. We’ll ride at noon on Wednesday, May 25th.  The ride will begin promptly at 12:00 pm, and the group will meet in front of the Fairmont Chateau Whistler Hotel and ride from there to the trail head.  You should be comfortable riding for 2 to 3 hours on technical single-track trails and have at least an intermediate level of fitness and bike handling skills. The ride will be on Intermediate (blue square) rated trails, where you can expect to encounter trail obstacles such as roots, rocks, and ladder bridges, and a dual suspension mountain bike is recommended. Post ride rehydration and refueling will be in the Mallard lounge! Please use common sense and caution when riding, and ride within your ability level. The organizer bears no responsibility for the condition of trails, or for potential injury or damage to equipment. All participants ride at their own risk. By participating in this activity, riders agree to this disclaimer. For more information, or to sign up, contact Tom Hudson at Core6 at [email protected].
