Dirt Surfers

Jill and Jennifer all smiles.
The Dirt Surfers are always out for a good time!

Our Hornby Island women’s mountain biking group actively schedules weekly rides most of the year. We bike the trails for fun, fitness and adventure and we support each other in learning new technical skills while building our riding confidence and stamina. We welcome new members of all levels and are proud to have a 30-40 year age span on many rides. 

Wednesday 9 am. Meet at the painted Water Tower (Central Rd at Sawyer Trail), or at 9:20 at Dylan’s Drop (bottom of Washing Machine and Yer Mom). Check with Jill to confirm if you’re coming as we don’t have a leader or guide. email:

HIMBA Kids Rides (not currently operating)

For years now HIMBA board member Yana Pethick conducted weekly after-school trail rides for groups of 5 to 9-year-old children. The rides were usually about 6 to 10 kilometres long and took advantage of Hornby’s numerous kid-friendly mountain trails as well as the road-side trail network. They were well attended, often consisting of between four and eight kids.
