Something im looking at doing in the not to distant future, i love Canada so another excuse to go over and a great price for 7 days i think plus what you get for it.
Or go for the big one, 13 days riding £1025 PP
''This sees the start of the 7 day interior tour. A free morning in Whistler. Before leaving Whistler the group will board a helicopter and fly you and your bike to over 6200 feet above the Whistler valley. At the top you will enjoy a hearty lunch and the 360 degree panoramic view. 3 to 4 hours of a completely unforgetable experience. Once the group is full of food and stunning vistas, we descend 2000 feet to the valley, that's over 4000 vertical feet of gravity fed mountain biking. After biking, we load up and head off to Williams Lake , get comfortable it's approximately 4.5 hours. Overnight in Williams Lake.''
This link has got me thinking, why not kill 2 birds with one stone and buy a new bike over there, ive looked at one example so far
Santa Cruz Nomad Frame - £1600 in the Uk $2310 in the usa
Using the yahoo currency converter that comes out at £1,268
Thats a good saving but when i was reading the link that rob posted they said that if you were on one of there holidays that you got 10% off in the local biek shops as well, so even more of a saving
Ive heard of people going to the US for bikes before, Ive been told that they take an old nutsty bike from the dump on the outward flight then buy a new one out there, they ride it a few times then bring it home, leaving the old one there, hence getting away with the import tax (if that makes sense)
Hmmmmm Riding Whistler on a new bike at bargin price then bringing it home, yes please ;D
