    Looking for someone to ride with near Nelson next week!

    Hey guys,
    I will be in Nelson visiting family July 1 - 5. Really wanting to rent a bike and get a ride in. Curious if there might be someone in the area willing to show me around for a few hours?
    I'd consider myself an intermediate rider (which in BC standards might be a beginner haha). I've ridden plenty of trails in Moab (whole enchilada, amasa back etc), Colorado & such, so some tech is OK, not into big drops etc. Just sweet singletrack.

    Anyways, if anyone might be interested let me know. I will have a rental car so that won't be a problem. Any bike rental places in Nelson?

    Thanks,
    Jeff

    Go talk to the guys at Garricks on Baker St. I think they have a small shop ride on Thursday nights, and if not, there's a good chance they can hook you up with a ride.

    Your welcome. Enjoy your time in Nelson, what a great place, it's by far my favorite place I've been in the BC interior.

    Rented two bikes from that shop and went out with my brother. Damn those are some serious trails, so steep my xc legs were not used to that at all. Glad we stuck to blue trails haha. Will def be back once i move out west next year to northern Idaho.
