June 1 – 4, 2017
Test ride brand new bikes on Whistler’s trails and see how the latest technology stands up to British Columbia’s world famous terrain. It’s the ultimate Whistler vacation on wheels, with bikes, guides, bike park passes and social events included. There’s no better introduction to Sea to Sky biking out there.
ThinkBike Whistler (formerly known as OuterBike) brings the world’s best bike and gear manufacturers to town for a massive, multi-day expo, where the latest bikes are available for test rides.
There’s over 190 km (120 miles) of beautiful British Columbia singletrack to explore from sweet and easy to technical and gnarly. The Whistler Mountain Bike Park is open with berms, jumps and rock rolls aplenty for demoing downhill bikes, while road riders have a perfect playground with plenty of technical climbs and descents on scenic mountain roads.
Guided Rides – Local guides lead riders on a different single track adventure each morning and afternoon. Learn the trails, meet riding buddies and soak up Whistler’s biking culture.
Talk Dirty To Me – Trail Builders who have created many of the classic trails in the valley speak about their inspiration, vision and challenges along the way.
Our Dirty History – A light hearted and fun night partnering with the Whistler Museum and Archives society. Slideshows, Videos, Rants and food and drinks included.
Kids Experience – For the first time, we will for the first time offer riding experiences and demo’s for kids. There will be skills camps for kids offered both through WORCA and the WB DFX Program.
Trail Project – A needy section of trail around Whistler will be selected to upgrade or re-route for the event and have opportunities for participants to get their hands dirty for a couple of hours helping to create this legacy from the event.
View the full schedule on the event website.
Bring shoes and your preferred pedals, helmet, pack, gloves and anything else you need to ride for three to four days in the mountains. Energy bars, shots and blocks will be provided for mid-ride energy boosts.
You can find anything else you need from accommodation to restaurants and spas in Whistler. Pack light, prepare to ride.
Two and four day registration for ThinkBike Whistler 2017 are available at the event website.
Requirements are minimal – demo bikes will be available so there is no need to bring your own bike. If you want to ride either side of the event (which we highly recommend) rental bikes are available in Whistler.
