“The A-Ride has opened my eyes and mind to new possibilities for gravity wheeled sports. With the forward facing, side by side foot position and lower center of gravity I found I had more mobility than on a Mountain Bike. Within a lap in the Whistler Bike Park I was smiling and giggling as I carved turns in the flow trails, powered off of jumps with bigger and more controlled air time, and had the confidence to stop on a dime with the disc brakes. An amazingly fun ride!!”
Rob Boyd, Ski Legend
“Best experience ever. It was the highlight of our trip. My 13 year old said it was the best thing we did there… and we did a lot.”

“My husband and I booked the Peak to Valley tour on a whim today 1/2 hr before it was to depart and it turned out to be the highlight of our 4 day Whistler Getaway!
The guys at Alpine Riding are all awesome and so helpful. I have never downhill mountain biked and they assured me I could do it. Our guide Marc was absolutely incredible, I can’t say enough about him […] Marc I wish I could express to you in words how much today meant to me. It made me realize that I am capable of. So much more than I give myself credit for.
Thank you all so much for an incredible day. What a way to spend our anniversary!”
Erin Kaetler, Ontario
