Good idea. It's getting some stutter bumps 'cause people are braking for the rough berms. Time to smooth them out.

See you there.

Anyone on here going to this? I haven't even ridden the trail since i've been here but my other half's away so will probably have the day free, should be able to pitch up and provide some labour, not sure about the trail building skillz!

been riding the bypass for a couple of months now and I personally think its in fine shape. Why the bottom of Team Pangor isn't getting any love is a big mystery.

Big part will be clearing all the ditches and drains that run the entire way up the trail. It's also a commitment to BC Parks to upkeep the trail and on closer inspection there are areas that need some fixing to keep it from getting worse.

Are the before/after pics posted anywhere? I'd love to see 'em. I only got one quick rip down the revamped trail at the end of the day and it rode well. I'd love to see where all the cedar went.

The writeup is nearly done and there's lots of pics to go with it! The cedar was going up to Slash to replace the long wide ramp near the bottom. Thanks to everyone who came out, and John Henry bikes, ESC Adventures [HTML_REMOVED] Naz @ Marzocchi!

Is this what you meant by 'Be Here'? I am married, but still sorry to have missed it!

Props to you for shifting rocks like a pro :)

Here's the collection of photos that I took on the trail day. (I was the one with a baby on her back and a camera on her front.

Write-up to come soon, if I'm not mistaken.

Awesome! Thanks for that. The one shot of your little girl taken over your shoulder pretty much sums up the whole vibe of the day for me. Can't wait for the next one!
