Description: Join us on this epic, guided Sea to Sky Trail off-road cycling adventure from Squamish to Function Junction (Whistler), and back again! Leaving Drop Bar Cycles at 7:00am , we’ll ride the scenic and challenging Sea to Sky Trail to Function Junction and then return the same day. You have the option to do a one-way, but you’re responsible for taking care of your own logistics/shuttle.
The trail has some solid climbs, hike-a-bikes, and technically challenging sections, but it can be generally classified as an intermediate level ride. The route is 90% trail (sweet!), but route also includes highway, sand, and pavement sections. The ride starts at sea level and climbs to a maximum elevation of 730m.

What to bring: Riders must supply their own ride nutrition and hydration (some electrolyte drink is a good idea), personal snacks, appropriate bike (see above), gloves, hat (for under helmet), layers, rain jacket, flat repair kit. Personal first aid kit recommended. We have a planned stop at the legendary Purebread in Function Junction for mid-ride treats. 🙂
The ride goes whatever the weather. Temperatures and weather can change quickly and unexpectedly, so pack more layers than you think you will need.
