The Wild Ride West

The perfect roadtrip: 2 weeks with 9 buddies from France living an epic trail bike journey on the best trails of Washington and British Columbia. Featuring Transition Bikes folks, Andreas Hestler and Jackson Goldstone.

Being riding Transition bikes for 4 seasons, we decided to start the trip in Bellingham, Washington, at the headquarters of the « rider owned for life » bike brand. The Transition boys hosted and guided us in their secret playground… which blew our minds.

The next step of the pilgrimage took place in the legendary trails of the North Shore Vancouver. Former Olympian and BC Bike Race owner Andreas Hestler was the perfect guide for an epic triple crown riding on Cypress Mountains, Fromme and Seymour classics.

The ultimate road trip lead us to the authentic wild Vancouver Island: a "must do" for every mountainbiker in the world. Having a guide like Martin Ready from Island Mountain Rides was the best way to find dream trails and enjoy the local culture around Forbidden Plateau, Cumberland, Mt Washington and the little paradise: Hornby Island.

We ended the trip ripping with the next generation young mutant rider Jackson Goldstone having 3 amazing days in the heart of Squamish: a great mix of steep, technical,  and flowy trails.
