“Respect: A call to Action for Sustainable Mountain Biking”

Tyax Adventures strongly supports and believes in sustainable mountain bike practices. We promise to practice, share and live this message. With this comes our collaborative production of “Respect: A Call to Action for Sustainable Mountain Biking.”

Respect is an engaging and inspiring call to action video meant to inspire mountain bikers to join the movement toward responsible and sustainable riding practices that will keep backcountry mountain biking alive, growing and sustainable in British Columbia.

Our goal in producing this video was to take the lead as a responsible backcountry tour operator and help educate riders about the importance of sustainable backcountry mountain biking practices, and to share a picture of what these sustainable practices include. Environmental, cultural, and behavioral aspects of sustainable mountain biking are addressed in this video.

This video is intended to be shared globally across all platforms, and amongst the entire mountain bike community. Please contact Tyax Adventures for details or questions about how you can help share this critical call to action piece.

Going Places: South Chilcotin

” After we arrived at our first camp, Seb said something that really stuck with me (and even 6 months later, I still think about it almost daily); he said, “all we have to do today is eat enough to bike all day”. In a world so fast paced, internet and data reliant, with a million things to get done everyday, you inevitably become disconnected with yourself, and nature. It was the perfect reminder to slow down, enjoy the company you’re with and your surroundings, and be super stoked that you are riding your bike in the wild on some unreal trails!”
