WHAT TO BRING FOR YOUR RIDE

The weather in and around Whistler is generally sunny during summer months, with daytime temperatures around 20-30C. Nights can be chilly (5-15C), so plan to bring along some warm clothing. As in any mountainous region, weather can change rapidly and rain/wind storms are not uncommon.

  • Bike Shorts. Padded biking shorts are highly recommended (worth buying just for your trip).
  • Biking gloves are optional, but highly recommended.
  • Shirts: cotton or light synthetic, long- or short-sleeved depending on temperature.
  • Footwear: if you have a pair of biking shoes, bring them along with your pedals and we’ll set them up on your bike. If not, bring light-weight hiking shoes or tennis shoes/running shoes. We’ll put flat pedals on your bike.
  • Rain gear: a light weight rain shell or raincoat.
  • Fleece or light weight jacket for early and late season rides. Also recommeded for Early Bird rides.
  • Small day pack, fanny pack or better yet a hydration pack especially on Full Day rides (depending on the ride, you may be packing your lunch).
  • Sunscreen and insect repellent.
  • Camera.
  • Sunglasses.
  • Swimwear (optional). On hot days there is always an opportunity to take in a swim in one of our many alpine lakes.
