All aboard for our Kettle Valley Railgrade
Self-Guided Bike Tours (Deutsch)
Our mountain biking tours are based from Christina Lake, British Columbia, and are central to some of the most spectacular sections of the Trans Canada Trail, the Kettle Valley Railgrade (KVR) and Columbia & Western Rail (C&WR). Trestles, tunnels and lake vistas are common on the surrounding trails, and the longest tunnel (1 km) on the rail is just over the hill. We shuttle you to the height of land (in most cases) so your ride is almost always downhill. We supply the shuttles, bikes & gear, and special guides and info to help you explore these rails with "insider" knowledge. Plus you are based at Canada's warmest tree-lined lake, a haven for swimming and water sports.
In addition to biking, we feature stand up paddleboards (SUP), canoes and kayaks for some fun on the lake. Our weekend getaways feature smaller groups, families or couples, with everything geared towards a weekend of recreation, relaxation, or romance. Come explore some of BC's richest areas for culture, history and recreation with us... we've been doing it since 1992! Our business has won many awards over the years, including the Green Business of the Year Award... see our section on Being Green below.
WildWays has been featuring people-powered recreation and transportation modes for over 20 years. Environmentally-friendly biking and kayaking accessories, as well as organic and sustainable clothing can be found throughout the store. Electric bikes have been available for the past 12 years, and we were the first to introduce these to our region.
Our repair shop uses only earth friendly cleaners and lubricants, and all of our cleaning solutions and recycled paper products are biodegradable. We have on-demand hot water and energy star appliances and electronics. Recycled paper and packaging is part of our commitment to doing more with less.
Keeping business local has always been our goal. We are known for hiring local teens and giving them opportunities to learn both retail and mechanical skills in a fast paced tourism oriented summer season. Some have gone on to become mechanical engineers, environmental specialists, and professional marketing people.
We run shuttles for visiting groups to help keep their carbon footprint low. Our kayak and bike tours feature eco-friendly education as well as historical and cultural facts. We have supported trail building in the area for over 20 years to encourage locals and visitors to get out and keep fit.
