Brent was a great guide! Very experienced and knowledgeable about the area, bikes and local wildlife, and made us feel comfortable with his friendly demeanour. This was a brilliant way to get to see the local area, and places we wouldn’t have known about otherwise. The ride was such fun! It wasn’t too challenging on the E bikes, suited my level of fitness not having ridden a bike in a year or so but would also appeal to more regular cyclists as I imagine Brent will go at whatever pace you like. I’d definitely recommend it and would love to go on a similar tour again. No bears on this ride but we enjoyed seeing the eagles and spawning salmon. Don’t hesitate to book! Thanks Brent!

Great experience! Brent was very nice and knowledgeable during the whole ride. He put my backpack in his car which was great because I didn't have to carry any extra weight, it was just me and my phone for pics! Plus a water bottle Brent had prepared for me and was attached to the e-bike :) I'm from Montreal and up until now my biking experience was limited to the city and the city parks. This was a bit more wild than I expected but I was still able to manage and Brent was always making sure I was doing ok and feeling safe. It probably felt "more wild than expected" because it was my first biking-out-of-a-city experience, but in retrospective the trails were pretty easy and riding in a forest was for sure AMAZING. The e-bike performance was great and the sightseeing was even greater. I also loved all the info Brent shared with me about the ecosystem and the animals we saw. We saw a bald eagle, some salmon fighting for their lives (people fishing... lol) and had a very weird encounter with two freaking black bears!!! Brent totally kept his cool and his first instinct was to protect me, he managed the whole situation and made the bears go away. I was obviously a bit scared but at the same time it was so amazing to see two bears from like 6-7 meters away! I think the bears were more scared of us though LOL. Do note it's very unlikely this would happen to everyone... Brent said it was the first time he ever saw bears on that trail and he's been in Squamish for 23 years so... Don't get your hopes up xD When we got back I decided to finish my trip with some ice-cream from a cute little place in the store complex were we met (not sure how to call it but it was nice hip gathering of cool places to eat and cool stores). Anyways I had ice-cream made from real fruit which was really yummy and a perfect way to cool off after the 2h ride. I would recommend you finish the ride the same way hehe. Overall a great experience and I would recommend it. Thanks for everything Brent!
