BRINGING YOUR OWN BIKE
Bring the proper bike to maximize your Camp experience. 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 please ensure it follows the guidelines below:
1. It’s Full Suspension
Full suspension bikes and disc brakes are essential. We ride more than you can imagine, to get the most out of the camp the right equipment is very important.
2. It Works
Make sure your bike is in proper working order before you arrive to camp. If you’re waiting until the pre-ride bolt check at camp, you’ll risk sitting out a lap to make nessesary fixes.
3. It’s built for the Bike Park
Ensure you have a durable frame and adequate components. Not all full suspension bikes are suitable for a week in the Whistler Bike Park. X-country bikes are not suited to jumps and drops.
4. Check With Your Airline
Be sure to check with your airline for any bike handling restrictions. Most will have additional charges, and some will require pre booking.
THINGS TO BRING
(A STARTING POINT)
We rent full suspension bikes. Also, feel free to bring a hardtail/dj bike as well if you want to take advantage of the local pumptracks.
3. Hydration packs
Are highly recommended. It’s important to stay hydrated throughout the day. It’s also nice to have a place to carry your pads, sunscreen, snacks etc.
4. Full-face helmets
5. Knee pads
Are MANDATORY. Elbow pads are highly recommended!
6. Swimsuit, sun block
It gets hot in Whistler!
7. Spending money
Snacks, souveniers, etc.

Bike parts and maintenance
Q: WHAT DO I DO IF I RUN OUT OF MONEY?
SGC has no cash on hand but there is a Western Union just a few min walk from our hotel and you can have money sent there.
