Pumptrackin’…

Last week I loaded up my truck at 4am (seriously) and pinned it to Tsawwassen to get on the 7am ferry and head to Victoria. Earth Odyssey was done their project in North Saanich early and I wanted to see it. A few important notes: Google Maps says it takes 2 hours and 15 minutes to get from my house in Whistler to the Tsawwassen terminal.  This is a lie (or maybe just a mistake).  They obviously did not take a 4am departure into...

Burns Lake, BC

This is a story I have been meaning to put out for almost a year – I’ve foolishly left it until now to write about. Burns Lake, BC was a big part of my tenure with Gravity Logic back in 2009.

Turns out I’m ridiculous and riding with new crews has been the...

Pembertraction!

April was the typical mix of sun and rain in Pemberton for riding and it’s taken me a bit of a while to feel like I’ve been really killing it on my bike again until now.  Today was the best day yet: up Happy Trail, across the Waco Connector, up to Cream Puff and down Moby Dick and Dark Forest 2. Stupid fun. It was actually a surprise to us to see how busy the trails were in Pemberton today – until we realized it was...
