getting in shape, or not

A big key is drinking lots of water (and yes, cutting down on or out the caffeine - or drinking extra water to compensate for the diuretic effect of the caffeine). Your metabolic processes need the water to use your fat stores. And anything else to kickstart your metabolism ie. eating regular meals and snacks, gaining muscle - more muscle mass needs more metabolites therefore more use of any fat stores, good cardio… At least that's the theory…

Anyone Been To Whistler Bike Camp? Need Opinions/Views!

Did the spokeswomen camp. It was definately good for skills etc. Only disappointment was that most of the women were not very aggressive on the trails. From a few people I've talked to who took the Richey Schley Freeride camp, it sounds like a good one to take - lots of opportunity for skills and adrenaline, testosterone etc.

I hate sun peaks

unfortunately, if you had purchased bike insurance (around $100 per year) you'd be ordering your new bike right now

NWD4 Rumour

I heard that he did gap the group but they caught his cameraman and confiscated any footage.

Maui freeride

I wouldn't call the Haleakala thing mountain biking. They offer tours where they bus you up there and you ride down the road en masse in big yellow jackets. They allow hiking through the crater but I don't think mountain bikes because they're very sensitive about the environment - State park thing.
