We love hearing from our happy customers!

I rented a bike and gear from John at Kootenay Cycling Adventures and did a short solo ride (2 days) from Nelson to Silverton. John was super helpful, taking the time to make sure we picked the right bike and that I felt comfortable knowing how to use all the gear. 

The bicycle itself was perfect for my ride because of it’s versatility – as I was switching from paved road to trail along the way. Great, easy to find campgrounds with all the facilities along the way (off of the Slocan Valley Tail Trail in Winlaw, and down near the lake in Silverton).

Overall, a really great trip. Wonderful weather and sunsets. Good daily distances for me as an amateur (around 50km). If you are thinking of a similar route, I recommend dinner at Mama Sita’s in Winlaw the first night, and break for lunch or snack at Flaka’s Bakery in Slocan City on the second day. 

There’s no feeling quite like loading up a bike and hitting the road – really enjoyed that freedom.”
