PL/GSM is awesome. I especially appreciate that the steeper, more energy-intensive section is near the bottom, then the grade lets up as your gas tank empties, with a nice cruise to the top.

I'd love to see it keep going above Baden/Powerlines, though I'm not sure where the land manager boundaries are.

Late to the party as usual…
Is GSM climbable/ride-able on a CX bike? Is it worth it?

With cross gearing it would be challenging. Plus the tight corners, if you have toe overlap would add to the challenge and then what, down BP to old buck?

Debate? Bikes are made for riding not pushing.

GSM is a great trail, but Good Sir Martin is probably the lamest trail name ever.

So what's the best way to get to GSM if you're starting from Hyannis? Do you have to ride up CBuster part way? Not too clear on the Trailforks map. Thanks

Or up Salamander to RT connector

Or up Academy Climb to RT connector.

From Hyannis side, take R [HTML_REMOVED] R Climb from the foot of C Buster (steep/tight route), or Salamanda to Rapid Transit and RT Connector (longer/meandering route), or just ride around Bridle to Cardiac and the Academy Climb

Sustainable will be around forever.

This route takes you to the climb via Cardiac Bypass which you can get to from either direction on Bridle

Alternatively, take Bridle to R[HTML_REMOVED]R climb, which takes you to C-Buster.

From here, yes, you ride a bit "backwards"/uphill on C-Buster, but it's a pretty flat section of C-Buster. We recently twinned the steepest bit of this section (look up Pussyfoot on Trailforks) to reduce the potential for user conflict arising from the increase in two way traffic.

Cheers!

Thanks, I didn't find that Trailforks route because it was in the Seymour zone, not the LSCR zone I was looking in. If you look at North Vancouver zone routes, many more show up.
