lift to whistler

Hey Jeff, I was planning on going up there on monday too and was looking for exactly this opportunity to come up. I'm from the uk and over in North Van near the Holiday Inn at Sven (Heckler) [HTML_REMOVED] Dorothy's place. I'll very happily chip in for the gas, no need for a lift back though, i'm probably going to come back on friday evening.

I don't have a phone here but if you just respond here and leave your number, i'll give you a call from the landline. I'll be at the trail day tomorrow on Fromme too if you're about.

Trail day

If I can get there (lack of transport) then i'm game, did some work on CBC last night, great bunch of people, glad to put some sweat back on the trails. I'm in pemberton heights at the mo ina b[HTML_REMOVED]b, but am looking for a bikers floor to crash on. Can anyone give me a lift/happy to ride somewhere to meet up?

clipless

I ride everything on clipless, shore, dh, xc even dirt jumping! the thing is, your feet are always where you want them, none of that shifting your feet to get them in the right place nonsense. However I learnt to ride on flats and am glad I did, the only time i miss flats is on really sketchy stuff in the wet and dirt jumping when I want to do no footers (difficult in clips)! One advantage is that you can also do no handed wheelies up hills! enjoy practicing that one.

Hey, i'm coming over to vancouver today from the uk and will be heading up to whistler in a week or so, midweek is good for me as i'm on holiday. If I could hook up with you guys that'd be great.

Show me the woods.

Sweet, i'm coming over from the uk to do the june trail day and maybe some riding too for the rest of the time. Are there any hardcore trail builders out there who want a hand on building more stuff/shore on random non official maintenance days? I'm going to be in whistler/north van/kamloops/pemberton for the month of june and would love to hook up with some cool builder/riders.

Let me know,

Alex.

June visit

I'm writing for contacts advice I suppose. The short story is that I've booked a flight to Vancouver at the start of june and will be heading out to whistler for the whole month. The rest i'm winging it at the mo, but want to get involved with a trail/shore building crew whilst i'm out there. I build at home and just love a good build session and then to ride it when all is done. If anyone can point me in the right direction, I would greatly appreciate it. Ta very much.

Alex.
