    Rocky I think its already stickied? It was an idea that was a long time coming. There's so much good information on here from you. I'll keep adding stuff to this as I find it. All I did was add MTBR threads for now but there's a lot on other sites

    Not that Edmonton is THE destination for riding, but I think that the Edmonton threads are pretty usefeul and a good area to investigate for anybody coming to E-town. There's an Edmonton thread usually on the first page on the western forum for anybody that is interested.

    Huge thanks to Lee for updating this and making it into a sticky. The info on the Chilcotins is exactly what I was looking for.

    I have huge amounts of information. You can check out Bush Pilot Biking for random trip reports, or just contact me for specifics.

    Advice is free, guiding is negotiable.

    Seems to me the title should be "Where to ride in western British Columbia". There's nothing in there for the Rockies or any of the other western provinces.
    Screw the chairlift, I'm riding to the top. You're all worthless and weak!!!

    The best discussion about riding in the Rockies by far is on Pinkbike. Trail Conditions for Calgarians - Pinkbike Forum
