'very much an XC ride'
We're building a 4 day 3 night package for the chilcotins along with Tyax air. Fly in, hut to hut riding with wilderness riding.. but.. having to think hard how to classify teh experience.
In reality, its a 'bike adventure'. The riding is very XC in the Canadian sense, however, on a daily basis, you can expect up to an hour of hike a bike along with a mix of actual riding.
Some steep ascents, some wicked fun steep descents. some stunning flow rolling descents (collective footage) and some rocky and horse trodden chunder. Tons of creek crossings... everything!
We've done both ride in and fly in.. both with their own benefits.. and stunning stunning natural beauty!
I'd take my 120mm Spark, 650b Genius at a push but its been done on all manner of bikes.
With just a day available.. Chilcotins is a non started IMO.
There are much more accessible areas on more of a 'beaten tourist path' that will blow your mind.
