No 2020 thread but thought I would ask here. What's the best way to do laps of west side trails? In the past I've parked somewhere around Stonebridge and pedaled up the road/Sirloin to the flank and then back on Danimal to the car, but for multiple laps this seems like a lot of traversing. Say I wanted to ride Pura Vida then Working Class or High Society to AC/DC, is "Leftovers" on Trailforks a steep skidder you can push up to get back to the flank?
Gonna be in town 29th-1st, if the park is open we will do a day there... was hoping to ride Dark Crystal or Microclimate on the 1st but with this Juneuary weather dunno if it will be good to go.. looks like Out There is closed for IFP work. Thinking we will check out Howler (never ridden), another west side lap Pura Vida + WC or High Society and maybe one Southside up Hihi to Hindsight/Tunnel Vision.
Any other suggestions for trail rides? What's running good these days? Prefer single black or easier double black tech but don't mind some fast flow. If the park doesn't open will probably do a Pemberton day since I still haven't ridden there and this rain should keep things nice.
You do the same route that I do on the westside, but I ride from my place. Also interested in the other route options. I rode Out There, Jeff's, Young Lust, and parts of comfortably numb recently. So good. One of the best rides I've ever done in that area. Probably going to be good for a few weeks, until it gets truly hot in late August.
I've never ridden any of CN or the trails off it, I hear it's classic Whistler XC? Not exactly what we are looking for this trip although someday I need to ride that trail. Trailforks says Out There is opening June 26 so we will check that one out on its own. Will plan on pushing up "Leftovers" instaed of circling around to Stonebridge/Flank for second lap on Westside and see how that goes as well, has to be faster I'd think.
