The South Cariboo is the gateway to mountain biking in the Cariboo- Chilcotin region. Riders can find trails along Highway 97 in Clinton, 100 Mile House and 108 Mile Ranch. Whether it’s a relaxing ride to take in the scenery or one to test your limits, there are trails for the novice and advanced rider. “Mountain biking in this area is quite diverse and it offers a lot of different experiences,” said Craig Davidiuk, Huncity Mountain Bike Club spokesperson. “It is suitable for people who may be new to the sport or enjoy easy riding.”
The Huncity Mountain Bike Club is the South Cariboo’s heart and soul of mountain biking. The club is a registered non-profit society that works with provincial and local governments for the advocacy, creation and maintenance of trails in the South Cariboo.
Weekly club rides take place on Wednesdays and they meet in the parking lot at 4690 Telqua Dr, 108 Mile Ranch. Everyone is welcome.
Some of the best riding experiences can be enjoyed at the 99 Mile Hill, just south of 100 Mile. In the last year, two new trails have been designed by professional builders for intermediate and advanced riders. The trails feature berms, bumps and woodwork. “There are a lot of disciplines in mountain biking, like free- riding which you can find elsewhere, but we have a cross-country style network of trails in the South Cariboo,” said Davidiuk. The 108 Mile Ranch offers a network of trails featuring rides that roll over cattle trails with options to connect with beginner, intermediate and advanced single-track trails.
