I just finished a nice little edit of two days biking on Galiano Island. It is embedded at the bottom on my blog post linked here;

http://www.somegood.ca/Site/Blog/Entries/2009/9/19_Gulf_Island_Biking.html

There are some very nice trails scattered around most of the islands, many with some nice views and ridges. However, the most unique aspect of riding in the Gulf Islands is some of the low tide possibilities. The sandstone can make for some very tacky riding similar to what I assume Utah's slick rock must be like. You just have to make sure you don't get too low or the barnacles and algae will get you.

cheers

Glad you like it. Including the music, but I'm sure the hippy tunes annoy a few.

Tyler- I'm currently on the bad coast.

Some thing totally different and super cool. That would be a video i would show some one to get them interested in riding for the first time, and a vid that cagey veterns would grin about.

WTF, Over?

Well if you come in this winter, let me know we should get out for some skiing if you can handle going with a splitter!

Cheers and many thanks again. Glad this has got some stoke, as it took quite a bit of effort to film and edit. There will be more.

If you have time to kill I've recently tweaked the video page on my site. Mostly ski videos but a few other bike flics too. And I have another short bike one coming soon.

Tyler- sorry for the confusion. Work keeps taking back east but I am still living in N Van for the next couple of years at least after all. Look forward to riding bikes or snow with you again soon.
