TAP signs yes. Trail signs not on CMHC land, no.

There are new arrow signs posted on the Seymour climbing route (e.g. at the start of Cardiac Bypass).  Definitely helpful for visitors who can struggle to figure out it the first time, but they don't seem to match the rest of the official signage.  Someone helping out on their own?

Finally you can watch MX racing without any of the fun or excitement.

Funny that’s exactly where most of the haters would want to see ebikes ridden anyways...   whats the problem?

Today, on the 14 km paved road climb (pedalled my Reign)  to my local Italian DH trail, there were many mtb ebikes bombing down the road, including a top of the line Specialized something.  I was the only one riding the DH trail down.  Hilarious

Ha cute, slow dirtbikes.

Question... Was driving the other day and clocked an ebike that looks like a motorcycle doing 55km. Had the this is an ebike plate on the back, sure looked like a streetbike.  Could see the little crank arms on the side, but wasn't pedaling. Obviously over 500w, easily obtainable. Wonder what the legal/insurance ramifications are if he gets involved in a vehicular accident. I notice drivers being confused by ebikes that look like motorbikes.

Sounds like a best case scenario.

I find it funny it's televised. Lamer than golf IMO.

How many of you remember early mountain bike racing being held on Moto tracks?

Typical 250-350w standard for the big name bike companies. But the smaller ones are pushing the boundaries of what is both safe and reliable. That said, I couldn't imagine riding a 5kw ebike like the one for sale on pinkbike right now.....

Not if they’re riding that. Not even sure what the pedals are for, even a parking cop could see through that.
