Bringing Your Own Bike
You will have the best time if you have a dual suspension DH/freeride bike. The Whistler Mountain Bike Park is a serious playground which gives a beating to your bike and its components. If you decide to bring your own bike:
It's Full Suspension
Full suspension bikes and disc brakes are highly recommended. We ride more than you can imagine, to get the most out of the camp the right equipment is very important.
Make sure your bike is in proper working order before you arrive to camp.
Ensure you have a durable frame. X-country bikes are not suited to jumps and drops.
Check With Your Airline
Be sure to check with your airline for any bike handling restrictions.
