Canada had to feature, didn’t it?! And whilst all the fuss usually centres around Whistler and the North Shore, we’ve opted for Retallack. An area made famous by its back-country skiing is now seeing a growing popularity as a top freeride destination.
The old mining hills and expansive slopes make it perfect for build-it-yourself shenanigans. It mightn’t be for the faint-hearted, but, trust us, it would be worth it!
Whistler, BC: The mountain biking Mecca is perhaps the most famous spot in the two-wheeled world. Get a lift pass and ride until your wheels are square!
Coast Gravity Park, Sechelt: The Coastal Crew backed and designed freeride park offers a dizzying array of big bike freeride lines.
The North Shore, Vancouver: The place that arguably gave birth to freeride. It’s not all skinnies and woodwork (in fact, very little of it is) but the trails are virtually endless.
