      Hornby Island is a recreation destination known the world over for it’s excellent trail network, local cycling community and amazing beaches! Home to one of the most beautiful and secluded selection of trails in BC.

      With several trail access points around the Island, you are sure to have one near your accommodation. One of the joys of riding Hornby is that you don’t have to load up the car to get on the trails. You are never more than a 10 minute ride to the nearest trail!

      If you are new to the Island, the first step is to get a map. Stop by the bike shop in the Ringside Market to pick one up. With over 80km of single track, you will be glad you did.

      There is no shuttle access by vehicle – You MUST pedal up, so leave your big bike at home.
