Warm season along the Powder Highway beckons you to spin your wheels in dirt. Famous for sliding snow, this road traversing the southeastern corner of British Columbia shifts into flowy and loamy time in the summer, with a plethora of mountain biking trails — from gravel grinds and forested single tracks to pedal-worthy alpine ridge rides and downhill delights.
Summer detours through four mountain towns in the region offer the opportunity to pedal your way down some of Canada’s best mountain bike trails, then down pints of craft beer at local brewpubs, recapping your day while sipping the flavors of the region. All four towns have brag-worthy trails, as well as a unique gritty and soulful appeal. They’re a little crazy and laidback, and you can’t beat the refreshing post-ride suds.
