For other epic wilderness recreation options and info about them, here's a few links to service providers we recommend.
The premier mass-market mountain bike in the world (in our lead guide's humble opinion) is the Rocky Mountain Altitude, in carbon. Longer travel + light weight, what's not to love? Marty's Mountain Cycle is the premier local retailer for this classic Canadian brand. Also they're stockists for all the other gear you'll need, to support your mtb lifestyle experience. 'I'm going to try out an Instinct later this year,' says Alex.
Bikers need to have a road bike, but because the Team Fish Bike Club is the kind of epic dirt-road biking program it is, the obvious choice to add to the quiver is the Devinci Hatchet, as well in carbon. Light sturdy and fast, it's perfect for extended recons no matter the surface. Fort Street Cycle is our knowledgeable purveyor for this and other needs 'gravel', also stocking Cannondale, BMC, and Devinci.
