Mountain biking draws tourists to Prince George

What does Prince George have that no other city has? Proximity of an urban city to the great outdoors! Tourism Prince George is pleased to announce the launch of new page on our website highlighting mountain biking within Prince George.

“The riding is good here, we have had the pleasure of hosting mountain bikers from as far away as Mexico and Denmark to shred the trails at Pidherny,” said CEO Erica Hummel. Each year we partner with Mountain Bike BC and BC Bike Ride North to host international riders, influencers, bloggers, videographers, and photographers to help us produce content that will garner further tourist attraction.

Extensive work has been done throughout the last five years to develop trail networks, all done by local volunteers. Complimentary of that, tourism organizations along the Highway 16 corridor have developed a mountain biking campaign to create a corridor of exceptionally diverse riding dubbed “Ride North”.

Mountain biking is a niche activity and draws hardcore riders from international destinations to experience Northern BC. PG has also produced some well-known riders such as Kyle Norbraten, who is featured in the video on the new webpage. Visit https://tourismpg.com/mountainbiking to learn more.
