Hi all,

I'm finally coming out west to ride!! I'm so excited!!!! I arrive in Vancouver on Sept 13th and am free until I have to be at work Mon Sept 24. I'm going to meet up with Kerensa in Whistler but am open to suggestions about where else I should go. I want to do as much riding as possible and as little travel time :)

Kerensa mentioned Sun Peaks - is there anything else I should consider? Anyone going to join us and show me around Whistler? :)

So excited!!!!!!!!!!!!

Woot,
Caitlin

Wow Caitlin, I'm so excited for you to come out to B.C. I can show you Sunpeaks! Silverstar too, it's like an hour and a bit from Kamloops.

well - what's your opinion? Other than Whistler where should I hit? I think I could probably do Sunpeaks on a weekend … I'll have two weekends but I would also like to ride the Shore….

Rock the chairlifts on the weekends, Shore on the weekdays?

I should be on Fromme for the weekends and would love to show you around. If we end up in Whistler together we can herd together down the hill.

The interior is just getting prime, and there's always room for more skids on our lawn…..

What's the deal with Women's Wednesdays at Whistler? Do I get a cheap ticket because of my boobs? :)

I saw that but it says 3 to 5 - so what does it mean if you are going to ride all day?

I have one day left of my triple play card that I got at the Triple Crown Silent Auction so I'll probably be up either Sept 22 or 23. It would be cool to shred some runs together or some beers.

Also, not sure what your doing during the week but I'm sure you could find someone to hit the Shore with during the day or I could swing an evening ride…also try posting on www.muddbunnies.com.

I have no filter …

hey marvel - I'm not sure I'll still be in Whistler then - I think I come back to Vancouver on Friday, Sept 21 as that's when my partner in crime is flying back to Ottawa. Our plans keep getting rearranged but I think we'll be there this weekend until Friday the 21st…

I have a BB7 which is a terrible pedalling bike - I wonder if there's anyway to set up a shuttle day on either Sept 22 or 23rd?
