Chromag

In a fairly nondescript building in Whistler’s Function Junction area is the home of Chromag. Started in 2003 building steel hardtails designed for the demanding Whistler trails and moving into components shortly after, Chromag has grown into a player in the global bike scene while staying close to their Whistler roots. We talked with founder […]

Deep(ish) in the Squamish Valley

Squamish winters can be a little cold and wet – not always the friendliest for riding.  So it’s no surprise that as the temperatures warm and the days get longer, the talk of epic rides and new accomplishments ramps up with the amount of daylight.  Perhaps the only thing that ramps up faster than the […]

Sea to Sky Trail – Cheakamus Canyon

When it comes to riding, Squamish is a place of options.  We don’t have a single well-known epic trail like the Seven Summits or McKenzie River trails – instead we have many individual trails and loops that can be easily linked to create many hours of riding. The Sea to Sky trail has been around […]

Please allow us to introduce ourselves
