The secret's out- Fernie's on pinkbike.com's latest Photo Epic. See why the world's mountain bike community just can't get enough of Fernie's fantastic singletrack. Just watch out for the demon grouse!
Pinkbike.com came to Fernie the weekend of June 28, 2014 to shoot this feature with four of its Pro-Riders and professional photographer Reuben Krabbe.
Part 1- Get Your Pedal On, Fernie Style
It goes without saying that Fernie riders are passionate about riding and their little slice of paradise. Armed with a diverse and extensive network of local trails Fernie can be pedaled, shuttled and always shredded. High alpine to valley floor descents, tight technical single track or fast and flowing trails Fernie is a destination to hit when planning a BC bike trip. If spending the day riding mountains under your own steam isn’t appealing, the Fernie Alpine Resort Bike Park has lift accessed trails covered with some classic BC style riding just minutes from town, but we'll talk more about that later on.
Part 2 - Fernie BC: Big Bikes and Big Descents
Photo Epic Part 2: Kenny Smith and Adam Billinghurst joined the gang and so began a great day of riding, starting in the Bike Park and ending with a 4000ft high alpine descent on the legendary Dirt Diggler. Fernie, BC continued to deliver the goods.
