Where to park
One of the greatest additions to Mount Fromme was the addition of the parking lot in 2015. It serves as a great staging area to begin your ride and brings you up into the forests and away from the city streets. There’s also a new bike wash station for after you’re done your ride, which is conveniently located just a few metres from your car.
Perhaps one of the best trails to get into the flow, Bobsled is one of the easier Fromme trails and has berms, small rollers and ride around options for any technical feature. It has seen extensive maintenance from the local trail organization, the North Shore Mountain Bike Association (NSMBA), and is a favourite with local riders.
Heads up: this is a purpose-built mountain bike trail, so it’s definitely not flat. If you’re unsure about your riding skills, why not look into mountain bike lessons to pick up some solid tips before you head to the Shore?
If Bobsled went well, try out Upper Griffen for a change of pace. Upper Griffen isn’t a steep trail, but it has challenging trail features including rocks, roots and bridges. It’s a great natural progression from Bobsled, and introduces technical trail features without being too intimidating.
One of the best part of any rides is the well deserved post-ride beverage after you’re done. It’s no secret that Vancouver’s brewery scene is fantastic, and there are a couple great options in North Vancouver close to the trails. Check out Bridge Brewing at the bottom of Mountain Highway. Try one of their seasonals, like the Fuzz Milkshake IPA (it’s a winner).
