We are a Squamish based mountain bike organization fuelled by our passion for sport, community, and the environment that surrounds us. We provide mountain bike coaching, guiding, private & group lessons, and camps in addition to bike rentals and accommodation for those visiting from afar.
From our basecamp in Squamish, we can bring you to the best trails based on your riding skills and preferences enabling every guest to reach their fullest potential (and have the most fun) while providing motivation and guidance along the way.
All mountain bike trails in Squamish sit on the territory of the Sḵwx̱wú7mesh Úxwumixw.
We recognize that we operate and live on this territory. Many of our programs ride in a trail network close to the Wiwk’m village as well as in Alice Lake, a place known as Ni’nich St’ena’tch by the Squamish people, meaning deer hunting grounds. As we pedal past cedar trees marked by harvested bark we are reminded that the Sḵwx̱wú7mesh people have lived on these lands since time immemorial.
As people who value friendships and community, we strive to work, live and recreate on these lands in a respectful and reciprocal way. Please read below to see how we roll alongside and informed by the hopes, dreams and excitement of youth on this territory.
Squamish Nation, SORCA and Dialed In
Squamish Nation Recreation, SORCA and Dialed In Cycling have been developing the foundations for the ongoing Squamish Nation Youth Mountain Bike Program.
All staff at Dialed In Cycling have in some form been impacted in a positive way through spending time on a bike. We hold in high regard the community of mountain biking; including trail builders, riders, athletes and the local moms, dads and kids that make it such a wonderful thing to be a part of.
In 2019 Matthew and Dan recognized the need to contribute to and engage with the Squamish Nation, in particular the youth. That first year we began building relationships, meeting youth and young adults interested in riding mountain bikes and developing ideas for what a program that gives back could look like.
In early 2020 we partnered with SORCA to begin developing the Squamish Nation Youth Mountain Bike Program. Within it, we run a weekly ride program for Squamish Nation and indigenous youth. Long term, this program is functioning as a mentorship and capacity building initiative as we work alongside these youth in their journey on bikes. Each year new young riders are welcomed into the group and the more experienced riders become the mentors. As this journey of fun on two wheels takes place youth have the opportunity to receive professional coaching certifications, first aid training and mentorship around business management within the mountain bike industry.
Youth are an integral part of any community however, it does not start and end with them. Through this partnership and eagerness to build relationships, we are also supporting indigenous adult social rides wherein our coaches provide instruction as well as fun and diverse rides accessible to all ages and ability levels.
Our hope is to continue building long-lasting friendships and walk (ride) in a way that reflects our understanding and appreciation for the long-standing history and connection to the land that the Squamish and Indigenous Peoples of Canada have and will continue to have.
"Absolute QUALITY service from start to finish. From my initial enquiry about prices and availability - with a prompt, friendly response from Dan. On arrival for my 3-hour guided trail tour, the chap organizing my bike noted that I'm from the UK so offered to switch the brakes to the UK set up for me! My guide, Nuno, could not have been better, offering me clear technical advice without overloading me and keeping the whole experience FUN - a really laid back bloke who let me find my feet and knew exactly where to go for my skill level... on the maze of un-signposted trails. If your a first-timer on the Squamish trails a guided tour is a must. The bike was superb quality and set up to my weight and height etc. A proper 5-star experience. Thank you."
"Thank you for an awesome workshop last week! Ivan LOVED it, and we're all so stoked with his new cycling skills. I really appreciate you having the extra patience with him to help get him starting/stopping on his own. He's been riding every day since and bragging to everyone about his fancy new skills!"
"I took an intermediate bike skills course with Jo, and had a great experience. You can tell Jo doesn't just love to ride bikes, but she also enjoys sharing that passion with others. Her classes are fun and Jo communicates how to do each skill in a way that's easy to understand. She gave me time to practice each new skill before hitting the trails."
