Whistler Mountain Bike Heritage Week
Thanks to everyone who helped make Mountain Bike Heritage Week so much fun this year! We're looking forward to next year already!
For more than 3 decades mountain biking has woven itself into the fabric of Whistler’s outdoor community. At the same time, our distinct biking scene has increasingly spread its influence throughout the MTB world.
In celebration of the trails, talent, and passion that makes mountain biking in Whistler special the Whistler Museum will be hosting our 3rd annual Whistler Mountain Bike Heritage Week May 14-21!
