Comfortably Numb and the comfortably numb (foreplay) descent is a classic must do epic cross country ride in Whistler, BC. It is on the IMBA official list of epic rides. Brutally relentless and incredibly technical this ride is not for the faint of heart. Leg searing climbs and super technical descents are the order of the day. It is the type of ride you might only ever want to do once, but you will forever be glad that you have seen it. If you are the type who loves challenging trails and a long day in the saddle then this is a ride that you will want to notch into your list of epic rides.

We have finished the ride by coming through some of the best descents in the Lost Lake area. Depending on where you need to go at the end of your ride you might want to vary the ride by riding towards Lost Lake when you finish the Comfortably Numb (Foreplay) descent.

We have started you at the trail head/parking area for Comfortably numb, but you can also ride out on the valley trail/highway or for the super hardcore you could ride Kill Me Thrill Me first, but you are likely a Sasquatch on steroids if you decide to do that first and we don't recommend that as this ride is hard enough on its own.

Laslty, we have built this route showing the little bypass option in the middle of Comfortably Numb if you decide to shorten the ride a little bit. To do the full ride just avoid the bypass option. You can also bail out on Young Lust, Jeffs or Yummy Nectar if you find the ride is taking too long.
