Mountain Biking

Calling all bikeaholics - get ready to shred in Tumbler Ridge. Mountain biking in and around town ranges from flowy cross-country singletrack to short and fun descents through the forest and along the creek valleys. Tumbler Ridge has an impressive and growing cycling scene that includes paved road biking along well maintained local highways and mountain biking on our network of trails and unmapped mountain terrain. Whether you are new to the mountain bike world or a seasoned pro, there are endless options for you to ride and explore.

Tumbler Ridge Mountain Bike Association

Tumbler Ridge’s iconic mountain scenery makes for ideal mountain biking terrain. As a result, the Tumbler Ridge Mountain Bike Association (TRMBA) is working hard to transform this undeveloped terrain into a world-class mountain biking destination, creating another reason to add Tumbler Ridge to your must see destination list. The TRMBA is slated to be busier than ever in 2021 with project preparation, fundraising and execution. As a club, we are excited to see the influx of bikers from all backgrounds into Tumbler Ridge, and we hope that you will continue to join us as we develop new and exciting infrastructure year over year. Tumbler Ridge currently has cross-country style multi-use trails that can be biked around town, and we are partnering with other local recreation groups to make existing trails more accessible for biking. Many of the biking accessible trails have been mapped and are available on Trail Forks. The TRMBA recently released our Trails Master Plan (available at www.trmba.ca) which provides a comprehensive view of the potential future trail development for the ridgeline. Overall this document will help our club to secure land tenure as well as assist in future fundraising. Currently, the TRMBA’s main project is the pumptrack (a paved family friendly track used to develop early mountain biking skills such as carrying momentum) which will be located centrally in the downtown core. The club is in the final stages of fundraising and hopes to commence construction in 2021. The biggest biking news coming out of Tumbler Ridge from 2020 is a $500,000 partnership grant that was awarded to TRMBA and the District of Tumbler Ridge from FLNRORD through an Economic Development Resiliency Fund. This funding will be used to establish downhill mountain biking trails along the ridge close to town. Phase one of this project will involve the development of an up trail and several beginner and intermediate downhill trails from the Trail Master Plan. TRMBA’s hope for biking in Tumbler Ridge for 2021 is to run our popular group rides again, and take part in community events such as the bike rodeo and the Triathlon. Throw your bikes in for some family fun when you are packing for your Tumbler Ridge adventure!
