We respectfully acknowledge that the Forbidden Gravel Experience will take place on the unceded traditional territory of the Puntledge, Iekson, Sathloot, Komox and Sasitla First Nation.
Anyone who’s ridden the gravel roads of the Comox Valley knows how good it is. A group of gravel enthusiasts have put together, for your riding pleasure, a challenging adventure ride linking some of the best routes and climbs around. Starting and finishing in the historic village of Cumberland, the Forbidden Gravel Experience will take you through lush forests and up Forbidden Plateau towards the old Wood Mountain ski area before making its way through the world-class Cumberland network of trails up and around the Beaufort range.. We’ve linked together an adventure ride that is a true gravel cycling test. We’ve added in some sections of singletrack and doubletrack to keep things interesting.
Proceeds from the event proudly support Trail Bicycles youth cycling team, UROC, Cumberland Community Schools society, Vanier High School mountain bike team, and Cumberland Community Forest Society
