About Arbutus Routes

In business since 2003, Arbutus Routes is a full-service bike shop based in Whistler, BC. The extension of our bike shop includes bike guiding and coaching as well as leading adventure travel trips in southwest British Columbia.

Arbutus Routes is dedicated to quality in everything we do from bike rentals and service to personalized adventure trips. We believe that the best moments can be found while riding your bike and exploring this beautiful province. These moments inspire us as we strive to have our guests find their moment on a guided ride or while exploring this dramatic region.

Our Name : Arbutus {Ahr-byoo-tus} Routes

The Arbutus tree is a stunning evergreen that is native to the coastlines of British Columbia. It is very unique in appearance and can capture your imagination. Our ‘Routes’ and those of the tree are here on the coast of BC and the ‘Routes’ that we explore lead us to inspiring places.
