There’s no need to be a high-test adrenaline junkie in order to enjoy Whistler by bike – you just need to be willing to go with the flow. Here are my favourite slow cycles and cruiser adventures to check out this summer.
Secret spots along the Valley Trail Linking the communities of Whistler, the paved Valley Trail system spans 40km and is the perfect “artery” to allow you to explore all Whistler’s lakes and parks. My dog, Yuki, and I love to pedal around Alta Lake to Lakeside Park – a great spot for a BBQ with friends after work or to grab a kayak for an impromptu paddle. Wayside Park is a little gem wrapped around by huge trees – it’s my go-to stop to let Yuki have a drink and catch a little shade, a necessary moment of chill for a dog built for -20 degree Celsius conditions.
