#1 Mountain Bike Tour Company on Earth

OVER 2 DECADES ON TOP

We’re not ones to pump air in our tires, but with well over two decades of experience, several awards and thousands of Rides around the world under our belt, we’ve come to learn a thing or two about what it takes to deliver a trip of a lifetime.

Mountain Bike Adventures with Local Guides

RIDES BY AND FOR MOUNTAIN BIKERS

All of our Rides are guided by friendly, knowledgeable and expertly trained guides who are passionate riders. Plus, when you hop on the phone with one of our Rider Happiness Managers, you know you’re speaking with someone who lives and breathes mountain biking, too. Nobody gets you like we do.

Giving Back to Community development and Buidling bike trails

GIVING BACK

Guided by our Responsible Riding mandate, our goal is to have a positive impact wherever we operate. We keep as many dollars in local communities as possible by using small, locally-owned accommodations and restaurants (and staying away from big chains), employing local guides and supporting local community projects and MTB clubs.

Meaningful Mountain Bike Travel Experience

MEANINGFUL ADVENTURES

Our Rides take you off the beaten path to provide you with a deeper, more intimate experience that you can’t get from the seat of a tour bus. We always start with great riding, then add layers of interaction with locals and unique experiences designed to give you a better appreciation for the areas you're visiting.

A MESSAGE FROM OUR FOUNDER

Why Mountain Biking Matters

Ask Mike Brcic, Why Mountain Biking Matters

Mountain biking can change lives.  I know this because it’s changed mine. 

From the moment I first threw a leg over a bike at the age of 6, I was hooked.  Discovering mountain biking 12 years later only deepened the addiction.  Sacred Rides was founded, way back in 1996 in Fernie, British Columbia, on the belief that mountain biking can make a difference in people’s lives: our Riders, our guides and support staff, and the people in the communities we visit. 

From opening us up to the sanctity of our mountains, forests and rivers, to experiencing another culture from the seat of one’s steed, to making direct contributions to local community projects, mountain biking has the ability to change lives.  I think you’ll agree that mountain biking and travel can and should change the world for the better. That’s the very core of what Sacred Rides is all about.

Mike Brcic,

Founder/CHO (Chief Happiness Officer)
