Richie Schley POV on Treasure Trail

"Awww I hate skinnies..."

In a riding mecca full of world-renowned classics, one trail name is getting a mountain lion’s share of mentions these days. If you’re talking about Squamish, and want to see not how, but if you stack up, there is a new standard and it’s the Treasure Trail.

Richie Schley famously doesn’t like skinnies or the classic ‘old school’ trails of the north shore. Fair enough – he’s earned his keep on the steeps of Kamloops and the show-and-tell beaches of Laguna. But in all sarcasm, the guy can ride, and regularly shows up in a vid with his old buddy Wade (and also Matt Ryan in this case). Gotta give him some A-for-effort points because he keeps claiming to love this trail, but I’m not entirely buying it. Anyway, here’s a POV vid of the trail. If I’m being honest, the video quality is actually poor but it doesn’t matter; the trail looks burly and the guys are having fun. If you expect much more than that out of a POV vid, you’ve had one kool-aid too many, son.

How about Treasure Trail in the snow we have right now? Someone must have laid down fresh tracks…

    I thought these guys could ride? They took the punter line at the beginning instead of the rock spine.

      “I thought these guys could ride?”

      LOL, you’re hilarious. Ever ridden with Wade? Good luck keeping up!

      • Matt Funk

        I dunno… we’d have to compare our stravars

      • If you’re worried about Wade’s strava times, you’re not going to enjoy riding with Wade. He’s fast for sure, but he’s also more fun to follow than anyone I’ve ever ridden with – and that’s what everyone always says about riding with Wade.

        Mano-y-mano competition! Wade Simmons versus Matt Funk on Treasure! I am getting a trail side seat, and I know who I am betting on. Bring it on.
