Recommendations for trip to BC
I'll begin with introducing myself shortly, I'm Patrik, a young highschool boy from Helsinki, Finland, I compete in tennis as well as I cycle.
Well anyway, next summer me and my friend were planning on traveling to BC, mainly 'cause of Whistler bike park but also 'cause I've heard there are plenty of other good places there to cycle and the place looks amazing in pics I've seen. We're planning on being there maybe 1-2 weeks so there should be plenty of time for cycling.
So now I'll ask you guys, if we're heading to BC (you can recommend other places too), where should we go? Is Whistler really superior to the other bike parks and trails in BC? We are searching for a place with both downhill trails with lifts and peaceful, technical trails with both up- and downhills. Neither of us have a driving license so we're searching for a pretty "compact" place so we can avoid getting lost, having to take taxi:s too often et.c.
Less crowded places are always a plus in order to get accommodation and food maybe cheaper. And in order to get to ride in peace.
Oh and bike rentals where you could rent DH bikes would be a plus, but we would manage with out them too since we've both got 160mm fullies..
Thanks in advance!
