2% for the trails logo. Giving back to the local trails through donations


Arbutus Routes trail advocacy includes our program 2% For The Trails amongst other contributions. Through the dedicated efforts of our local cycling associations and passionate trail builders we have the best mountain bike trails in the world. These trails are our playground and a significant economic driver for our whole community. We created 2% for the Trails to help put more resources back into our trails.

From our beginning we have supported the Whistler Off-road Cycling Association (WORCA) in sponsoring trail maintenance days, Toonie races, bike swaps and other local efforts. We have taken this a big step further and have created an initiative called 2% for the Trails. With this commitment we are donating 2% of revenue from all our bike tours and all Arbutus Routes branded merchandise. We are proud and excited to be donating thousands to our local cycling associations; WORCA, SORCA & PORCA to better support them in their mission.

Trail Use Approvals / Tenure

Arbutus Routes also holds legal tenure with the Province of BC to operate commercially on the mountain bike trails. This includes the trails in Pemberton, Whistler, Squamish and the Sunshine Coast. This process took over 8 years to finalize and included work with environmental consultants, First Nation communities, local stakeholders and the Province of BC. We are proud of all those efforts and to now hold official approval from the Province of BC.
