I don't want to take away from the seriousness of all the fires in the Arctic, but couldn't we see most wildfires from space?

Re: Musing about 5620: new Revelstoke Bike Park trail

Posted by: grambo

Hah. I mean it depends, B-Line or Insomnia at Whistler is something I could ride for 15km - steep/tight berms, fun little doubles and option lines. But something wide and flat like Earth Circus or Una Moss without the jumps and with wide long berms - no thanks.

never ride european flow trails then...

One would assume he’s referring to the ISS.

as long as they are not self sufficient up there i would not call that "living in space"

No one is ready for that. 

Our food supply chains (for example) are dependent on oil, from start to finish.

Those changes will take decades, and that’s if the entire market wants those changes to happen. Which it doesn’t.

so in other words we are screwed.

what's the plan then? live it up knowing/hoping you'll die before things go to hell?

moving up north...

Maybe we need to start planting Redwoods.

Stop transportation using oil (driving, flying, shipping), stop eating meat and stop using fossil fuels for heat and electricity. Do all of those and the problem would pretty much disappear overnight. 

Who’s ready?

That would only keep the warming rate steady instead of rising exponentially

Re: Best tech trail to lap over and over on the shore?

Posted by: fun-house

Was thinking about how skilled many UK riders are, with the reason being that they aren't spoiled for choice or elevation, and so inevitably end up lapping and sessioning the same thing over and over. This is essentially the recipe for success in downhill, and they have bench strength to prove it.

So instead of doing an entirely different lap everytime I ride locally, and instead of only hitting each trail on that lap once (usually), what's a good tech trail that you can just smash out laps while constantly refining line choice, memory, and commitment? I feel like it cannot be Seymour because each lap takes too long. If upper Severed was steeper that might be an option (to JD/GSM), but it's something more like the bottom half I have in mind. If HSL were a black, that's what I am looking for. On Fromme the best option might be Crinkum Crankum. Any other ideas?

and yet the french are dominating hard in the last 2 years...
