Martin Ready

Martin lives in Cumberland and is the Owner/Lead guide for Island Mountain Rides (  He can be found all summer guiding riders from all over the world on the trails of Vancouver Island.  Martin is also a member of the BC Bike Race’s “Bike Patrol” where he serves as an ambassador each year for the week long race adventure.  When not riding he likes to concentrate on trail building and maintenance in the Cumberland network.  His weapon of choice is the all new Instinct Carbon 70. Martin has used the Instinct over the last 4 seasons and considers it to be the most versatile bike, perfect for guiding, patrolling, all day epics and general everyday riding.  He loves that it is an efficient pedaler, great climber and an extreme capable descender. XC, Enduro, Marathon, it does it all.
