What to Bring:
Summers in the Yukon are generally quite temperate and it is a semi-arid environment, meaning we don’t really receive a lot of rain. Average temperatures range from day time highs of approximately 20°C/65°F to possible night time lows of 5°C/40°F.

Clothing: We love layers and recommend people bring a rain jacket, fleece jacket and comfortable clothes for lounging around the Ranch after a day’s ride. Comfortable hiking boots, too!

On Bike: For riding, we recommend people bring their usual cycling attire such as shoes, padded bike shorts, shorts, t-shirts, long sleeved shirts & pants, wind breaker, full fingered cycling gloves, sunglasses, and a backpack or hydration pack.

We do have a limited supply of full suspension Norco Sight 3s available for rent for our package clients. They are rented for an additional $40.00 CAD per day. We also have all the tools and stand required to build your own bikes.
