Very true - better the two of you than me! :D

I'm up for Burnaby or somewhere else as well. I've only been to Fromme and Seymour out here so eager to try something new. I'll be going to Whistler anyway on Thursday but would be up for a short ride sometime Wednesday or Friday.

Heal up soon Nick.

Injured Rider? Do you know what happened?

Well, nvm. Posted above while I was writing. :)

Hope they're ok. That can bleed a lot!

Fromme/Seymour conditions

for a trail that has a dedicated builder - ie karen - you're better off not "fixing" anything. if she doesn't like what you've done, she now has to go back and rip it out and replace it, thereby wasting her time. if a stunt is unrideable due to safety issues, then block it off and email the nsmba and it'll get taken care of.

As I said, I'm not about to 'fix' a trail I know nothing about. I'll flatten nails that stick out and remove broken sections of wood, but that's purely for safety reasons.

Thanks about the tip on where to send info about broken bits; I'll do that next time I come across something that needs fixin'.

Also, how do you find out if a trail has a builder / maintainer and who it is?

Just thought I would jump in here… Methods and I rode the trails this week and yeah, there are some sections where the woodwork definitely needs some fixing. Maybe next time up I'll bring a hammer and some nails, but having never done this type of work, I don't want to 'fix' woodwork in a way that might not hold up to the use it sees. Perhaps I'm over analyzing, but I'd rather have someone with experience show me how to do things rather than just nailing stuff myself.

Would I like to do a trail day? Yeah, I'd love to. Problem: they're all on weekends. I either work or am away from the city on weekends but have almost every weekday free…

Best day to check out Whistler?

I am in the fortunate position that I have a scheduled day of work once or twice a week, usually on Fridays and Saturdays. Keeping this in mind, what's the best day of the week for a Whistler newbie to check out the park?

My best guess is weekends are busiest, with Friday a second close. But what about the rest? Will Monday still be busy with leftovers from the weekend or will everybody have gone home by then?

Any info appreciated!

Hehe, I google mapped it, zoomed in real close and think I now know where. I'll come down Smithe and turn right onto Hamilton, which will be in front of your building??

In either case, look for a black BMW with my bike hanging off the back. :-)

Ok, I think I've figured out where your place is. I'll see you there tomorrow at 9.

I'll try - I still have no idea which exact address it is. I'm in a small black BMW this time.

I'd like to head out around 9 from downtown so hopefully I'm back shortly after noon.

Does that work for you? I'll come pick you up - same spot as last time?

If I have the weekend free, I'll do photography. I'll confirm closer to the date.
