Ride The West Kootenays
Small Groups. Big Adventure.
The West Kootenay Ride and Stay is a small group gravel and mountain bike experience in the Slocan Valley. We provide comfortable accommodations, the option of a private cook, farm to table meals, a wood fired sauna, outdoor shower, remote backcountry access and custom guiding, for groups of two to five people. If you’re staying in the area, we can also provide day trips as well.
In light of Covid-19, we encourage responsible travel, meaning you should come in a pod and isolate while you are here, (That means no going out to restaurants, fill up you car and head home.). If you want to self cater, give us a grocery list prior to your trip and we’ll have your food waiting for you at your accommodations.
We’re happy to create the experience you seek. Come discover a truly a unique trip for you and your friends or family.
