I am planning a trip through BC for a week and do not have a shuttle vehicle. Trying to avoid the bike parks and was looking for suggestions if people know of companies out there that offer shuttle services.

Any where in the Okanagan, Kootneays or within about a day of driving from Vancouver.

Thanks

Thanks but I would prefer not to have a guide and the cost that comes with it. Ideally I am just looking for someone to drop us off at the top of the trail

80% of the shuttle cost is the gas and the vehicle. Give him a call. I'm sure he'd be more than happy to kick you out at the top. ;)

like I said…

We[HTML_REMOVED]#8217;re not your usual hand-holding bike tour company. Most mountain bikers wouldn[HTML_REMOVED]#8217;t bother with a tour, but we[HTML_REMOVED]#8217;re different. Think of it more like backcountry skiing. We will take you straight to the best stashes of singletrack, without the hassle of searching for it yourself. Plus, we know where all the rowdiest lines are hidden and where that particular shot you saw in that video is.

Our services range from single day excursions in the Okanagan to multi-day backcountry safaris in the Chilcotin. Prepackaged tours or custom expeditions.

Talk to Smoke, he would be your best bet.

There are not a lot of options in the interior if you're not self supported.

Looking to ride the shore but don't know where to go?

A few shops in the Kootenays and Interior have partnered with small shuttle companies. If you are planning a road trip call a few shops in teh places you want to visit and see if they know anyone. I think Red Shred's, Gerricks, Sacred Ride and a couple others all partner with local shuttlers.

hol-ee shit but that's a big hole :eek:

Smokes knowledge of terrian in the OK is unparrelleled and will link up rides that will blow your mind.

Pat at Dirt Tours will show you the goods in the Nelson area, he has a setup much like Smokes.

Local knowledge is key to an unforgetable trip, have a good one.

There's a company in Rossland which does just shuttling but I can't remember their name though I'm sure you could Google it…

for sure! especially when you're trying to follow cattle trails for 20 miles. The interior is full of trails like that.

And Smoke knows to turn left at the fourth cow pattie after the big tree with the funny rock next to it.

It's pretty safe to say that Smoke knows more trails in BC than anyone else, if he doesn't know it he knows a local well enough to be shown it.

Maybe when he retires he can write the ultimate BC mtn bike guide book.
