Five Days In Whistler Bike Park – Which Rental Ruled the Roost

Oct 13, 2016
Neville Park

Recently I had the pleasure of demoing four top-of-the-line bikes at Whistler Bike Park. Conditions were all-time with the mountain receiving a bunch of rain the week before and then nothing but pure sun for the days I was there.
