Bike 'n Bend Retreat

Backcountry based adventure featuring 3 fantastic rides, float plane drop, on trail coaching & lots of chill time in the alpine.

Bike & Bend Retreat at Tyax Resort : 2021 Dates TBA 

IMG 5377Join us for some of our all-time favourite rides in the South Chilcotin Mountains and spend lots of time in the alpine.

This 3 day camp showcases some amazing alpine riding and adventures.  Sweet Skills coaches will help you enjoy the trails to the fullest and conquer the alpine with backcountry tips and riding instruction along the way.

We'll start our riding on day 1 with a floatplane drop into the heart of the South Chilcotin Mountains and pedal up to Spruce Lake which we will be calling our new home for 2 nights. The 2nd day will offer those that have the legs and the lungs to pedal up to Windy Pass for a real alpine adventure! There will also be the option of a shorter ride closer to the base and time for an exploratory hike or hang out at the lake. The final day we'll be treated to a fun and flowy ride through the famous Gun Meadows winding our way up and down through the valley (but mostly down). Each day we'll look forward to the well-deserved apres which can include campfire, relaxing at camp, swimming, or taking a leasurely paddle on Spruce Lake. 

Enjoy the comforts of Spruce Lake Backcountry Camp and enjoy gourmet meals, campfire, a nearby lake, and the fresh crisp alpine air.

Treat yourself this summer and come find out what the South Chilcotins Mountains is all about!

Suitable for intermediate to advanced riders.

So many highlights I can’t pick one! The trails, scenery, backcountry camp, coaches and women were all great!!
