do you ride there? it is some of the few XC on the shore. to compare it to Seymour, Fromme, Cypress and now a bike park at Cypress shows that you haven't ridden it.
I have ridden all over there for the last 10 years. I lived near Cap College for 5 years and rode it regularly then. I occasionally join a riding group who meet in LSCR parking lot every Sunday morning at 9 am.
what a surprise… the people who don't regularly ride it don't give a shit and take the supossed high road…
Say what you want about "the high road" … if you still think that open hostility to other users of public land is the better alternative, you have missed my point.
There is a fair amount of XC riding on the North Shore (granted some of it is steep - but the last time I checked, this sport was still called "Mountain" Biking). Some XC trails on the North Shore I have ridden over the years that still exist (some I have ridden have no names, some have names I can't remember, some no longer exist. Of course, there are also North Shore XC trails I have never ridden. ):
Seymour/LSCR : Old Buck, Bridle, Mystery Creek, Hyannis, Jack Thompson (Figure 8), Fisherman's, Ridge runner, Bottletop, Neds, Corkscrew, Seymour Powerlines, Incline, Baden Powell, Camp brick, Lillooet Trail (other side of Lilloet road from Camp Brick)
Fromme: 7th-Leppard-Kirkford-Krinkum-Krankum,Griffin, King of the Shore, Another Roadside attraction, Bobsled,St Georges, Baden-Powell, Mountain Highway, Mosquito Creek area
Cypress: BLT, Brother's Creek, Stupid Grouse, Forks, Powerline Trail, Paul Hogan, Moose is Loose, Blind Skier
Don't limit yourself to the North Shore. There are other XC trails within striking distance. You can ride or drive to Burnaby Mountain and ride there. You can ride or drive to Horseshoe Bay, hop on a ferry, enjoy a muffin and then unload onto over 100 km of singletrack on the Sunshine Coast. D.
