South Chilcotin Mountains Provincial Park (British Columbia) is a visually spectacular area with mid-elevation grasslands, sub alpine and alpine meadows, alpine lakes and mountain peaks. There are broad valleys and ridges with interconnecting trail systems. More than 120 miles of trails on 72,000 hectares weave through valleys and alpine meadows, over mountain passes and along exposed ridges, offering an excellent variety of loop trips of varying difficulty and distances for hikers, horse riders and mountain bikers.

The amenities created for mountain bikers on this demanding ride include several cafes, parking lots equipped with bike washes, restrooms with showers and a well-stocked bike shop. The singletrack, however, is the real draw of this Epic, with narrow, twisty trails that open into well-crafted jump lines. Great flow and grippy rocks abound, and the trails hold up well to the soaking Welsh climate.

Mo Co Loop

Some 150 people participated in the inaugural MoCo Epic ride, put on by the Mid Atlantic Off Road Enthusiasts (MORE). Montgomery County, Maryland, is home to one-fifth of Maryland’s population, but there were long stretches where you would never know that. Riders were treated to some 40 miles of trail connecting nine different county parks. The MoCo Epic reveals the possibilities for great riding in suburban landscapes: A common refrain from participants was, “I felt like I was actually going somewhere.” They were, of course, even if the riding was just outside their own backyards.
