The Island boasts a wide variety of terrain and is renowned for it’s beautiful scenery.  The mountain bike trails that you will experience are all purpose built, mountain bike trails built by mountain bikers, for mountain biking!  IMR can show you all the best routes to maximize enjoyment and flow.

IMR is based in Cumberland, BC which is quickly becoming Vancouver Island’s riding Mecca.  If mountain biking is your religion then a pilgrimage to Cumberland is a must!  Cumberland boasts a wide variety of trails right out the back door in it’s neighbouring forests.  Cumberland is centrally located on the Island and is the perfect place to access the trails of other areas, such as; Forbidden Plateau/Comox Lake, Hornby Island and Campbell River.
