Once a predominantly youth dominated sport, non-traditional bicycle recreation—including mountain biking (cross-country, free-riding, skills, dirt jumping, pump track riding) and BMX riding (urban riding, dirt jumping and racing) has been growing steadily in popularity across all age groups over the past 10 years. And thanks to the ongoing dedication and expertise of Surrey Off-Road Cycling Enthusiasts (SORCE) and other local not for profit groups, including Dirtwest and Action BMX, bike parks in Surrey have been carefully designed to offer a variety of tracks and trails to suit all abilities. For those just starting out, it’s a good idea to visit a local bike shop to ensure you have all the necessary safety equipment, including a helmet. A knowledgeable professional can also help ensure you have the right bike to fit both your needs and body. Once you’re suited up and ready to roll, your next priority is choosing which of Surrey's many tracks and trails to try first!
