What footwear is best to wear for biking?
Preferably a flat soled supportive shoe is the best option.

Where will we go for our tours?
It depends on what tour you have booked. Our mountain bike guides will take you on the fun local trails in the area. Depending on your level will dictate what trails we can take you on. Rossland is fortunate to have a very large trail network on offer with everything from nice mellow trails to extreme downhill trails with lots of features.

What is the minimum and maximum size of the tour groups?
The minimum and maximum number of people varies for each tour offered. Please call one of our reservation agents to inquire about a specific tour.

What experience/fitness level do I need to have?
Not sure if you’re fitness level is up for the challenge? While mountain biking does require a certain level fitness from riders, we have a full range of lessons that cater towards riders of all fitness abilities.

Where do the tours/rides leave from?
Most of our tours/rides depart from the parking lot behind Revolution Cycles next to the Rossland Brewery, unless prior arrangement is made when you book. Our Seven Summits tours depart from the museum parking lot at 8am daily.

Are the tours condition/weather dependant?
Our tours will run in nearly all weather, but may be cancelled due to very extreme conditions.
In certain cases it may be necessary to reschedule a tour due to poor/unsafe conditions or heavy rainfall. Be sure to bring appropriate clothing so that you’re as dry, warm, and comfortable as possible.

What is your cancellation policy?
Cancellations made within 48hrs will incur a $10 admin fee. Cancellations within 24 hrs will not receive a refund.

Do I have to wear a helmet and protection for biking?
Yes, BC law requires that people on bicycles wear helmets. It is also recommended that you have padding (knee, shin and or elbow pads) to protect yourself. It is not required to have padding but we highly recommend it. KMBC have a limited supply available for rent.

Do I need to have special riding gear?
No. While it is a good idea to be aware of the weather, come dressed in clothes that give you a free range of movement, can get muddy and can keep you warm in the wet, or cool in the sun, you do not need anything out of the ordinary.

I want something specific, can you accommodate?
Yes we can. Our experienced coaches can accommodate your needs when requested, based on your current riding ability. No sure of what your level is? See level descriptions listed below.
