We've already got something in the works… will make sure to post it when we get there. My tall bike just needs knobby tires to be ready for a rip down Bobsled, and my friend's hill climber-inspired chopper is already good to go with a Junior T.

Maybe they will put in sidewalks too; I've alway s wanted to ride my bike on the sidewalk - in the forest.

This trip to Kelowna was definately an undertaking - Liam and I had been planning this project for 24 hours. We worked really hard to pull out all the stops in this video. We had slo-mo goggle shots; time lapses; pedal flips; outrageous product shots; unloading and loading the bike; walking through the field with your hand in wheat. At the end of the day this trip was all about just getting out and riding with all my friends.

I was wondering last night if those were new or if I had been riding past them this whole time and just never noticed them. I guess I'm not that crazy.

Rode 7th Secret, Leopard, Crinkum, Upper and Lower Griffen.

Had to push from Upper oilcan but before that the road is totally rideable. 1st 100m of 7th Secret has compact snow.

Upper Oilcan looked totally clear from the road.

Awesome night ride!

Solution - ride up at night with your lights off. You'll never even notice them!

Oh yeah we rode up Dempsey Braemer and across BP, then Pipeline, and Lower Crippler totally clear oh so much fun

We assumed (hoped?) that guy actually had a phone and reception!!

Yep sure did, he was an antique of a man too. Good on him for staying fit.

technically it already is paved - its under the gravel. Its becoming exposed in some spots like at the Nat High entrance

I got a book for Xmas with old historical photos of North Van. How lame is that? And even lamer, I'm totally stoked on it. Anyways, its got an old pic from the 3rd showing nice smooth blacktop and an old 30's era car chugging up
