After the longest break in 12 years, I got out on Burnaby Mountain yesterday and today. There is some debris down, but the conditions were excellent. Get out there!

i haven't ridden there in a couple months aside form the last few days, so maybe not recent, but people are doing work on the trails. gearjammer and lower snake have buffing since last i rode. conditions are pretty good.

also, that awkward bridge/a-frame thing on naheeno is broken on the down-side. there were two branches sticking out the up-bridge to warn people, otherwise you wouldn't see it until too late.

So I see the little shuttler shit heads have braided LS almost into oblivion.* Looks like they took saws and shovel to that last ntf near the bottom. You know, where you had to drop then right then drop left?  SAD!

I'm going in there w/a a couple lengths of 4" pipe, a post hole digger, a jug 'o water and some concrete. #buzzkill

  • actually all those trails are looking really beat down. #sodusty! 

Some rain on the wknd will be welcome.

It's not really surprising considering the trail design and the location.

I guess I am a shit head. Guilty of using public transit to shuttle up when I don't feel like climbing back up for more than 2 laps.

Lol...do you braid?

It's my assumption, and I believe I'm mostly correct in this, that it's the adolescents shuttling their d/h rigs who can't be bothered (immature, eh?) to slow down to drop around a mostly trials type ntf, to the point that they will actually destroy purpose built barriers to keep peeps on the slow and crooked official trail.

That is bullshit behaviour and they - whomever they are - are shitheads for doing it. And for that statement, I remain, unrepentant.

I have no issue with shuttling per se, and will occasionally even cop a bus ride up myself for another lap if I've pulled the hill at least once under my own power.

Look what they've done to the forest floor around their braids, man. Mangled beyond repair. Just sickening.

Is the CoB trying to injure mtn. bikers now?

They put in what looks like a cross between a bridge and a skinny on Sidewinder - 12" planks mounted perpendicular on one horizontal 4 x 4 post - placed in the ground that tilts side to side.

And they got it placed so you have to turn onto it uphill or off of it downhill. With what looks like the same milled stuff they use elsewhere that gets so slimy in fall/winter.

Does anyone know how the SFU trails are running these days? Are they ridable with the current snow?

There's no snow and the strava fucks have trashed the place.
