bikeThe Sunshine Coast is one of the premier mountain biking regions in Canada. With year round riding and a labyrinth of trail systems, it's no wonder the Sunshine Coast has become a must-ride destination for racers and recreationalists alike. Road cyclists will be challenged by the 70+km Hwy 101. This scenic masterpiece weaves along the shoreline before giving way to the inland lakes near Pender Harbour. Don't be afraid to seek the road less travelled as there are countless mountain biking routes and trails. Your mini mountain bikers will love Sprockids Park with over 14 km (8.4 mi) of trails with jumps, downhill, teeter-bars and ramps. Most of the biking routes loop back to the park centre so riders can enjoy many trails.

The BC Bike Race travels the length of the Coast each July. So grab your bike and come 'Ride Where the Pros Ride'!

fishingSaltwater anglers can expect great peak-season salmon fishing along our magnificent coastline. The Strait of Georgia is a major salmon migration route and is accessible from any of our communities, from Gibsons to Earls Cove. The deep waters of Pender Harbour are famous for giant lingcod, in addition to salmon. Shellfish include prawns, crab, oysters and clams. The Coast's charming little villages make great bases for fishing the many mountain-fed streams and lakes full of steelhead, cutthroat and rainbow trout.

To ensure a rewarding fishing experience, charters and guides are recommended. Charter operators, equipment and boat rentals, and welcoming fishing resorts are plentiful. If you are travelling with your own boat, there are many opportunities for moorage along the Coast.

Fishing licences are mandatory in British Columbia and can be purchased at marinas. Look for the free British Columbia Freshwater & Saltwater Sport Fishing Guide at Visitor Info Centres.
