Mountain biking Top of the World in Whistler

I know I said ATCA in Oakridge, Oregon, was my favorite ride of all time, but a new champion has been crowned.

Whistler’s Top of the World trail always produces stunning photos and videos, and I loved taking my turn on the mountain.

  • My ride was 8.2 miles long with 10 feet of elevation gain over 1 hour and 13 minutes
  • The Top of the World trail is the first 4 miles of the ride. At the end of the trail you enter the Whistler bike park and make your own way down to the bottom.
