Trails were in good shape today but the woodwork above BP was really slick this morning even though they looked grippy and with no signs of frost. Must be the transition from lots of wet to cold temps. Likely OK now that its warmed up a bit.

Pipeline and the BP were awesome. At 11am the woodwork was very slippery but that probably improved as the day warmed up.

There's nothing better than an Orangina after cheating death with Digger.

We rode ladies around noon and the wood was still very slippy even though it didn't appear to be. I learned the hard way, unfortunately. It probably improved as the day went on. I'm guessing that it'll be awesome in a few days if the dryness continues.

Leppard and Krinkum also suffered the icy wood. With forecasted highs of 3 degrees at sea level for the next couple days, I'm not sure if we'll see improvement. Bobsled was in prime condition today, though!

Rode Ladies yesterday just after lunch time. It was awesome - Digger has done a tonne of work. Ran into him at the log ride teeter section HOLY CRAP. If you fall you're swimming - he's been busy like a beaver and created some seriously deep pools. We chatted for a bit and after my ride I stopped at Cove and bought a copy of his movie - got to support the guy that supports my riding habbit by busting his ass on the trails.

Can you scan some of those photos?

The pic I mentioned is page 102 top right, 1st switchback. Sorry for the hugeness.

Since I probably violated copyright laws I'll add that this is from Time Travel in North Vancouver, by Sharon J Proctor, and its a rad book.

Nada. In fact 7th is probably pretty clear these days.
