Senior / 55+ Biking


Seniors' / 55+ Mountain Biking

Based on the feedback of those who participated in the seniors' snowshoe and cross country skiing programs, we are offering something different: seniors' mountain biking at Otway!

There will be two groups, beginners (known as Newbies) and experience riders (known as Oldies). Each group will be taught by experience NCCP certified instructors.


Information session & bike tune up

Monday May 14 at 1 pm

Join us before lessons begin for a short information session on what to bring and what to expect from lessons. Be sure to bring your bike because our certified instructors will be offering a free (or by donation) bike tune up to ensure a safe ride on the trails. We want to make sure you have a bike that is safe and appropriate for trail riding before hand, and we will even adjust your bike to fit you.


Mountain Bike Lessons

Monday May 28, June 11 and 18

1 pm - 2:30 pm

Social from 2:30 pm - 3 pm

Newbies ~ An introduction to mountain biking (basic skills, bear awareness, equipment, basic maintenance), exploring the flat trails at an easy pace. Covering questions such as "what is a single track, how do I gear up and down?"

Oldies ~ For riders who are comfortable with mountain biking and want to improve and learn new skills while discovering the single track trails at Otway.


The cost for all three lessons will be $60. Call the office (250-564-3809) during business hours to register. Registration is limited. The Last day of registration will be 3 pm on Monday May 14, after the information session.


For the lessons, meet outside in front of the rental shop at Otway. Bags may be stored upstairs in the lodge.
