Biking Weekend in the Whiteshell

This is going to be a blast. The WE Hike + Bike “signature adventure tour”, which runs one weekend each month from May to October, is especially geared for families. All ages are welcome. Participants must be comfortable with riding a mountain bike on trails with a variety of conditions, and have a fitness level that allows for being on the trail for several hours in one stretch. Each tour segment will be offered with a “relaxed pace group” and a “moderate pace group”. Both groups will allow for lots of rest stops, and a variety of photo opportunities. Our base camp will be at Wilderness Edge in Pinawa, MB. Our weekend of adventure will take us through some of the most amazing terrain in the Boreal Forest, on the edge of the Great Canadian Shield. As we follow newly developed sections of the Trans Canada Trail, you will experience unique sights and sounds that cannot be found anywhere else across Canada.

Your registration includes:

  • Guided bike tours (Saturday morning and afternoon)
  • Guided hike or bike tour (Sunday morning)
  • Souvenir T-Shirt.

What you will see

Canada’s “Boreal Landscape” is home to billions of migratory birds and some of the world’s largest populations of wolves, bear, caribou, and moose. Manitobans in particular love their boreal forest, including the thousands of life-giving lakes and rivers, and the quiet, understated beauty of the sun setting over the trees. Everyday sightings of deer, foxes, beavers and many more birds and animals, make this an exciting place to visit, all year round.

 

What to bring

For hiking, bring a few layers of clothing including a windbreaker and a good pair of hiking boots or walking shoes. Depending on the temperature, which can vary greatly, bring along a hat and gloves.

For biking, bring biking shorts, short and long sleeved shirts, biking shoes or runners, and a bike helmet. Depending on weather conditions, a wind and rain proof jacket. If you do not have a bike, you can register to rent a bike at Wilderness Edge (See bike rentals)
