My wife rides with me and my sister rides with my brother in law and us when we can work it with all our schedules.

I am sure they would like to hook up for a ride sometime.

They are both newbs, they like riding the blues at whistler (crank it up, bline etc and they will ride with us at ledgeview in abbotsford and shotgun at the woodlot….)

Taylor and I ride together lots. We met as riders so it is natural we still ride together eight years later.

Greg and I ride together a lot too. Pretty much any time one of us is out the other is not far behind. The key is to ride stuff that both of you like not just what one of you like. I know that sounds kinda obvious but you would be surprised how many couples we have met that only ride trails that one of them likes. This can push one of them out of the sport. For us, riding time is quality time and we really try to support and encourage the other to challenge themselves.

Bighitter and I ride together whenever we're able to. Thankfully, we both like the same kind of trails - a bit of everything! As was said above, riding time is quality time together.

a bit of everything!

Including long technical climbs? :P

Fluid and I ride together, but not all that much. She's got more friends than me (I must smell bad).

We have a good balance of riding together and also riding with others. I am very involved with the Muddbunnies so I have a good riding crew of girls to ride with a lot of the times and he also has his own crew too when we're not together.
Right now we're planning a trip to Utah over Easter to ride with another couple (CraigH and his wife).
I find the balance between riding together and separately with other people works well for us.
That, and biggles smells bad :P

you can always make more money but you can never make more time.

I think it's called work for a reason. Or else they probably would have called it fun-time at the fun factory.

When I was single or had an ex-bf who didn[HTML_REMOVED]#8217;t ride, I spent most of my time riding with the Muddbunnies or some other friends. But since meeting Forest, I balance riding time with the Muddbunnies, our mutual friends or just the two of us. We always have so much fun together whether we are riding in a group or alone. He also gets in a lot of his own rides.

When we decide to ride together, he has a very good understanding of my riding abilities, encourages me to challenge myself, and is patient … what more could a girl ask for :heart:

Champ, your lady should look into the Muddbunnies www.muddbunnies.com, to get some gf that ride :D

I have no filter …

The main reason it would be nice to meet other riding couples is for riding trips were wanting to do some more this summer whistler of course no big deal but sunpeaks,silverstar and possibly some sorta guided trip in the interior,thing is she is learning but still not so fast so its fun to ride together but i would never leave her to ride alone when are other friends come out we ride together for a while then the girls go one way and the guys the other.

My girl is fairly new to the sport, but she loves Silver Star and we're planning a trip up there for the week after the coed July Dirt Series in Whistler. She won't ride all day every day, but she has fun when she does. If your better half is up there that week, let me know I'm sure Suz would love to be able to ride with another girl. Also consider the Dirt Series, it's a great way to increase your skill level.. My riding improved dramatically after last summer and so did hers.

Being cheap is OK. Being a clueless sanctimonious condescending douchebag is just Vlad's MO.

My wife and I do xc-ish rides together. She is fairly new to the sport and already scared and nervous about our summer trip.

I really enjoy ripping the trails with Amanda..can't wait til the snow melts!

This trip to Kelowna was definately an undertaking - Liam and I had been planning this project for 24 hours. We worked really hard to pull out all the stops in this video. We had slo-mo goggle shots; time lapses; pedal flips; outrageous product shots; unloading and loading the bike; walking through the field with your hand in wheat. At the end of the day this trip was all about just getting out and riding with all my friends.
