Biking in Ucluelet allows you to enjoy the outdoors while exploring our town. Get close to nature as you cycle residential streets that run along the inner harbour, or on the other side of the peninsula along the wild open ocean. There are bike paths in Ucluelet including one that leads out of town along Highway 4. There is also a BMX track on Matterson Road between Bay St. and Marine Dr..
Please note: bicycles are not permitted on the Wild Pacific Trail.
It is just over 30km to Tofino, and although cycling is allowed on this route; please use caution when on the Highway. Paved bike paths start just outside of either town.
Although bicycles are not permitted on walking trail in the Pacific Rim National Park Reserve, cycling on the beach is allowed. Wait until low tide and cycle on the hard, packed down sand on Wickaninnish Beach or Long Beach. Enjoy the sea breezes as you peddle along 16km of surf swept nature.
The extensive web of logging roads and back country trails make Ucluelet the hub for enthusiastic mountain bikers! Take on the adventure and challenge of mountain biking near Port Albion across the bay from Ucluelet, and throughout the land areas of Barkley Sound heading towards Mussel Beach, Salmon Beach and Toquart Bay Recreational area. Ask the Visitor Centre for a Vancouver Island Backroad Mapbook.
Skateboarding and longboarding are also popular in Ucluelet. There is a skateboard park located on Matterson Drive next to the basketball courts and Ucluelet Community Centre. Host to the Ukee Bowl Slam event each fall, riders carve their way around the bowl, catching air, ollies, fakies, etc.. During Ukee Days in July, there is also a Long Board competition, with riders charging down Main Street.
