PST on bikes?

Great commentary James! This is going to affect the economy in so many ways. Take design which is what I do. Design fees have never had PST on them, so all my clients are now going to have to ante up an additional 7% for the exact same level of service! Nice one Gordo…

North Shore Bike Fest Tales and results - and an article.

Results are posted at www.northshorebikefest.com so check them out, along with the results for the other races and events that took place. The doublecross looks like it must have been a blast! I was marshalling at M6 which was the connection to Bridal Path after the little climb up Willys Way or Karen's Trail (I'm not sure what it was called). My perspective everyone was having fun, being as courteous as they could and moving over if asked. Even the pros had grins on their faces! Cleaning up was part of our duties as volunteers so don't worry about leaving garbage on the trail. Of course its nice to not have to pick crap up, but it is a race course and chucking empty bottles and stuff to save weight is part of racing. Overall a beautiful day and a wicked course with REAL singletrack and technical! I'd suggest registering early as it will fill up for sure. The DH definitely was maxed out on racers. See ya next year for sure!
