Why do we require an application?

Our application process is in response to two of the most common questions our Riders have prior to booking a trip with us:

1) Am I skilled/fit enough to participate in this Ride?
2) Will the other people on my Ride be skilled/fit enough?

Ensuring that you - and the other Riders on your Ride - are a good fit for the Ride selected is of paramount importance to us. We want to help you pick the Ride that's perfect for you, and ensure that everyone booked on a Ride is on the right Ride for them. That's why we want to know a bit more about you - your mountain biking history, where you ride, how often, etc... - before we take your money.

We review every application and if, based on your responses, we think you're a good fit, we'll approve your application and you'll receive a link to place a deposit. If we think you might not be a good fit (either too skilled or not skilled enough for the Ride you chose), then we'll give you a call to discuss your preferences in greater detail.

Please note: our application process isn't about excluding anyone, or making anyone feel like they're not 'good enough' to participate in one of our Rides. It's about ensuring that you end up on the right Ride for you, with people of similar skill, fitness and riding preferences. In the end this ends up being a much better experience for everyone.

Love to Cruise?

 

Are you looking for a ride without a ton of stops for technical riding where you can keep your flow going and cruise through pristine mountain scenery? Moberlander still offers the riverside views, and the historic Moberly Cabin, without the technical and edgy  exposed  terrain. Ramble along both the Athabasca and Maligne Rivers with plenty of opportunities for animal sightings and gorgeous rocky mountain photos.  Your heart will be pumping and you will  feel satisfied after this beauty classic ride for our Intermediate Riders.  

This ride starts from the Wickid Cup and heads out from Old Fort Point along the rivers edge past the famous Fairmont property, the Jasper Park  Lodge . Up towards the sixth bridge  where we will cross over to the main trail taking us to the Historic Moberly Cabin. With a few fun and challenging little ups and some  rooty downs we will make our way through the thick forest out into an open meadow where the cabin lies.  That is our turn around spot so we will stop for a nice snack and some   photos.

As we pass the Jasper Park Lodge on the way back we will stop for a delicious lunch on the patio with a view of Whistlers Mountain.   As a Fairmont resort, the JPL is known for its delicious  cuisine sure to please your palate and satisfy your hunger from riding. After lunch we have a short jaunt back to town where our guides will take you right to your accomodations or to the rental shop, whichever you prefer.
