A where-to / how-to for my girlfriend would be much appreciated !

Browsing the threads, I'm going to take her out tonight and explore the north road/dead moped trails.

Maybe I went off of Nicole's, but there was some nice little 2-3ft drops and little boulders,logs to get over while going down. I enjoyed it, but she would have freaked out just looking down some of those little lines.

We'll take the north road trails and go from there.

Are you ladies doing any group rides anytime soon ?

I just sent this link and the mudbunnies yahooey to my girlfriend.

She's a beginner or intermediate depending on how you look at it.

She good on 10-15k XC and some mild DH (non-technical) riding a HT.

We normally ride on the UBC trails and she's just getting comfortable on the downhilly/wide single track part that leads down to the beach.

She's riding an Iron horse HT with a good 5" fork on the front but has been eyeing my 04 kona stinky for quite some time now.

I've been riding up at SFU only twice on my own and it was just after it had rained going down Nicole's (?) trail. I liked it, but it's definitely too technical with the roots/drops/boulders for her right now.

Is there a beginner's downhill section at SFU ?

Also, the ladies daily/weekly rides that you girls do, what/where/who/how does she get on them ?

Thanks !
Jesse :woot:

Took the girlfriend riding

Just started to get mine into riding as well. Riding a little Ironhorse with some judy's on the front. Mostly XC. Trying to get her into some smooth DH trails. Anyone now of some good (non-technical) beginner DH at SFU/UBC area ?
She's been eyeing my 04 Stinky … oh oh …

Truvativ Shift Guide

Anyone have/used one of these ?

Wondering if it's as good, if not better than the E13 or LRP.

@ $80 it 'sounds' like a good deal locally.
