Mmmmm-mmmmm-mmmm! That was tasty! Loam… rock faces… gnar roots… crashes.

My truck holds 7 bikes without even trying. Hell! I think we could of put in another 4 if we hung them over the sides.

I'm not ever sure what we rode. I think it was Powersmart/PseudoTsuga, then back up for Peanuts/PseudoTsuga/Deliverance. Lots of laughs! Thanks Heckler and Heckler's Better 1/2 for showing us around.

I learned the hard way to towel off my bike before the dog. I'd rather have a slightly oily dog than a hairy bike.

Beautiful west coast, ocean inspired pottery.

That looks like an older ranger. Here's mine with bikes. 6 bikes here, although one had already been unloaded. Not as efficient as your method.

Sweet! Now that I see that you can pile them on top of each other, I'm pretty sure I can get 15 or 20 in my truck!!

I initially had them set up a different way where you could only get 5 across. Then Heckler showed me the right way to do it and all of a sudden there's room for another 2.

Now if I can only get my tailgate to stay closed, I'll feel a lot better about that whole set up!

Look close at that one that sits cross-wise: isn't touching any other bike, nor the trucks (except for the wheels). There's a 2x4 that's part of the bike rack - I rigged it so a bike can stand on it and be held in place by 4 straps.

Rube Goldberg, anyone?

It was a great day! Filled with Donuts, Sweeeeeet slashy slashy fast single track, random runs with trees, crashes and numerous steeps.

Gotta love riding Squamish!

Cheers and until next time!

Doug calm down, just Google search donut and you should be fine right? I mean apparently any will do, they just have to be donuts!
