Make Like Magellan – 8 Reasons to Travel to Ride - July 20, 2017, 1:08 p.m.

I take my own vacation away from it all around my birthday every year and it involves nothing but me, my bike and exploring new trails and areas. 

It started when I turned 40, I went up to the North Shore and discovered  how much I suck at mountain biking.  It's driven me to get better, even at 43 now.  I met great people, had good food and drinks. last year it was Nelson, same. Maybe next year Kelowna/Penticton.  It's not just about the riding. It's making friends, experiencing new things. (trails) : )

LOL..I"m the same way. I cannot get on a trainer anymore. I'll find something to do, run, swim, shovel snow…ANYTHING.

What Development Has Benefitted Riders Most? - Dec. 29, 2016, 9:36 a.m.

Growing up riding in mud…yes, disk brakes were the biggest game changer.
2nd place- coming from an XC background and riding more DH now..the dropper post is definitely nice!

The Ten Laws Of Loam - Nov. 17, 2016, 8:15 a.m.

To me there is nothing more mtb than being one of those awesome guys/gals that will invite an out of towner to enjoy one of the local fav's. To me this represents everything good about humanity, mountain biking and the love of getting out and doing stuff outdoors.

50 Ways to Leave your Bicycle - Nov. 10, 2016, 8:28 a.m.

Where is the 0 mph crash? Where you try to start from a stand still, hit a rock with your front tire and it stops you dead in your tracks. Usually results in banged knee or damaged genitals.

Dorking Up MTB - Nov. 4, 2016, 9:59 a.m.

I got lucky. I won some straps, power grips or something like that, at a race. Went to get gas on the way home and someone took them from my front seat. I'd like to thank that thief.
