Riders West story: Canada is top for off-road riding with Red Bull athlete Chris Birch

Thanks to Kitt Stringer for helping get Chris Birch here to ride many of our great trails and experience British Columbia.

According to Chris:

How does the terrain compare to other places you’ve ridden?

We were talking about that last night over a few beers and Canada is definitely in the top three places in the world I’ve ridden. There is quite a lot of riding. It seems like a pretty good culture for trail building, as well. There are a lot of guys out there building and maintaining trails, which is quite unique in a first-world country. Normally, you sort of find that the poorer, more developing countries have a lot of trails because you’re basically just riding walking trails—trails that people are using to access the mountain for food or whatever reason. A lot of the first-world countries you go, people don’t do that.

Without all our dedicated volunteer trail stewards and clubs, we wouldn't have some of the best riding in the world.
