Mountain Biking in Greater Vancouver

Premier Listings: Mountain Biking: Vancouver, Coast & Mtns

Although the seat of extreme mountain biking lies just across the Lions Gate and Second Narrows Bridges from Vancouver and Burnaby on the North Shore, Vancouver itself has very little in the way of challenging fat-tire trails, aside from those in Pacific Spirit Regional Park.

Everett Crowley Park is located in Vancouver’s Champlain Heights neighbourhood. Although the park has only been in existence since 1987, it has already gained a reputation as a place to ride a bike, be it skinny tire, fat tire, or BMX. […]

Vancouver’s Queen Elizabeth Park and New Westminster’s Queen’s Park feature particularly eye-pleasing pathways bordered on all sides by intensely planted gardens.

Denman Island

Premier Listings for Denman Island

Tranquil and bucolic, Denman Island and Hornby Island sit just off the east coast of Vancouver Island. Denman Island is the larger of the two, known for its pastoral farmlands and its population of talented artisans.

Separated from Vancouver Island by narrow Baynes Sound, Denman Island is fertile, low-lying and lush. Its beautiful sandstone and gravel shores teem with life: oysters, rock crabs, clams, eagles, seabirds and black-tailed deer.

Denman was once known as Punchlatt Island, and the Inner Island, by the Puntledge First Nations who set up summer camps on […]
