Shore Bike Camps began in the birth place of North Shore style riding – at the base of Mt. Seymour – in the fog and damp forest of Deep Cove on the ‘wet coast’.
SBC was founded in 2007 by the mother / son team Erin and Marlowe Northcott. Both life-long North Shore residents where playing in the outdoors is a way of life – one they are happy to share.
Marlowe has been riding the local trails for around 19 years and instructing bike classes for over a decade. In addition; for over the last 11 years, he’s taught skiing and coached ski-race programmes. In his spare time he back-country skis, kayaks and runs.
Some of his certifications include: CSIA, CSCF, NCCP and Wilderness First Aid.
Erin is the client-care specialist, the cheerful voice at the end of the phone. She’s also the one who finds out who’s missing the single red sock, the keeper of misplaced gloves/jackets/helmets and has even been known to run a few of our Tykes camps!
Seven years of handling the finish line duties for the North Shore High school Mt. Bike League, assisting with the Tots ski lessons up Mt. Seymour and many other volunteer activities have allowed her to pass on her love of the outdoors and teach kids to appreciate the opportunities in our own backyard. In her spare time, Erin can be found outdoors riding, running, paddling, skiing or snowshoeing.
