North Shore - Cypress Mountain Biking

North of Vancouver on the infamous North Shore, the Cypress area is one of the more diverse mountain biking areas in the region with long car shuttle routes and some traditional North Shore stunt riding.

To reach the trailhead, follow Highway 1 to Exit 8. All the trailheads are off Cypress Bowl Road. do not bother going higher than parking lot 5 or you'll end up riding illegally in the Provincial Park.

This mountain is more difficult because of the layout and can be quite confusing at times. Here are two great routes to try. Route 1 is to start on the Coiler down to the highway, then head down to the corner and do My Friend The Grouse. This is one of the longer rides on Cypress. Route 2 is on the other side starting with the Slipper Canoe then taking the BLT (gravel access road) over to Roach Hit and finishing up with the Roach Clip. This is more challenging old school riding and lots of fun.
