Chilliwack is home to some world class mountain bike trails. As locals, we wanted a local shop that matched the calibre of the trails we get to ride everyday. A shop that only carries products and brands that we believe in and trust. A shop for the mountain bike community. We started Vedder Mountain Bike Co. with this vision.
