Next Level Riding Ltd
Next level riding has been created to help beginner and intermediate mountain bikers maximize their fun on a bike, whilst enjoying the natural beauty of Vancouver Island.
The company was created by Alan Churchill in 2018 with the intention of sharing the amazing benefits of mountain biking.
Aside from the obvious health benefits and improved mental well-being, Alan believes mountain biking can be a vehicle for environmental sustainability. Therefore, we support local trail initiatives to improve mountain bike infrastructure. Ultimately, ‘Next Level Riding” is here to bring quality mountain biking instruction and guiding for all levels of rider from beginner to advanced and to maximize ones fun on a bike.
Alan relocated to Whistler, BC from the UK in 2004, where his love of mountain biking grew towards an obsession. Consequently, this obsession became his main driving force for emigrating. He later became a Canadian Citizen, and after exploring Vancouver Island for the last seven years, was able to realize his dream of creating a mountain bike guiding company.
“Mountain biking has changed my life and I want to share that passion and experience with as many people as possible. I want to pass on the joy of the sport to others!” ~ Alan Churchill
