Mountain Bike and Cycling in Comox Valley

Get going with the various biking trails in the Comox Valley. Feel the wind when you bike through the most extensive mountain biking trails of Mount Washington, the biking trails in regional district parks, or ride your bike down the road for enjoyment. The biking trails and parks in Comox Valley offer experiences for everyone, from families to hardcore downhill enthusiasts.

Cumberland Mountain Biking

Cumberland is home to a world-class mountain bike network that welcomes thousands of visitors each year. You can’t talk about mountain biking on Vancouver Island without mentioning Cumberland. This tiny town with a deep history of coal mining wasn’t always so bike-focused. It wasn’t until the early 2000s that riding truly started growing in “Dodge City,” driven by a few key individuals who saw promise in steep mountainsides and emerald forests. Trail building came hot on the back wheel of the early heyday of freeride and the older trails in Cumberland
reflect this, with steep, gnarly drop-ins and the rotting wood of retired stunts laying off to the side of trails.

Mount Washington Bike Park

Just 30 minutes from Courtenay, Mount Washington Alpine Resort’s Bike Park is a great way to sneak in some lift-access riding throughout the summer. The bike park is open from July through September, offering great terrain for everyone from first-time beginners to daring descenders.

Need Intel On Where To Ride?

Book a tour with a certified guide like Island Mountain Rides, or talk to the folks at Dodge City Cycle or Beaufort Cycle in Cumberland, Trail Bicycles or Mountain City Cycles in Courtenay, or Comox Bike Co. if you’re staying across the bay in Comox. All bike shops will have ultra-helpful maps for sale, with proceeds going to the trail organization that manages the network: the United Riders Of Cumberland.

 
 

Know Before You Go

  • For wayfinding, it’s recommended to download the Trailforks App.
  • Always ride prepared with tools, water, and snacks. Cumberland is a large network and it can be a long walk back to town if trouble strikes.

Amped Rides 

Since moving to the Comox Valley Curtis has brought up three kids riding bikes, and have discovered an amazing network of trails. These trails have been undergoing improvements every year. For the last six years Curtis has worked with the Comox Valley Regional District resurfacing and maintaining trails that explore some of the most beautiful areas around the Comox Valley. The best way that Curtis has found to access these areas in a fun and friendly way is with these fat tire electric bikes. They deliver enough power to get you where you want to go, and the wide tires eat up the small bumps and roots, as well as decreasing impact on the trail, for a lighter footprint.

Currently bike sales only, tours and rentals suspended due to COVID-19.
