    Trails in Prince Rupert, BC?

    The possibility of moving to Prince Rupert has suddenly come up.
    I was initially excited but I'm unable to find any real mention of riding there. From what I can tell it looks like the closest trails are an hour East in Terrace.
    The only real mentions of mountain biking in the area I can find are a couple of articles in local papers from 2014 about locals looking for land to build trails, and a BCBR video on YouTube where they end in Prince Rupert but it looks like they ride in Terrace and have a banquet in Prince Rupert.

    Is it possible this is the only city in BC with no mountain biking?

    Mountain bikes are likely less of a popular activity due to the rainfall.

    FWIW I ended up speaking to a local.
    There's zero riding in Prince Rupert. The locals all go to Terrace for a day of riding. Unfortunately, this means no quick after-work rides.
    As for the rain, apparently it rains all winter (for 200 days straight so get your vitamin D from a pill bottle I guess!). The rest of the year isn't bad.
