Cougars?

One of the coolest (and scariest) things I've ever seen was just after starting a climb and seeing a deer cross the road. About 10-15 seconds later a huge mountain lion slithered out all in stalk mode. The thing paused, looked at me then slowly tracked behind the deer on it's path.
I promptly turned around and made a sprint back to my car.
didn't want to get between a lion and its meal.

Had a fun few days down south of the border. The wild flowers are amazing right now.

Great riding in Winthrop. Used to drive up from Coeur d' Alene all the time to race up there. Great memories. Almost ran into a cow on the trail once. : )

Riding Sat-Wed. Trail conditions?

Hello fellow mtb'ers.

I decided to turn 40 by riding what appears to be the best of the best trails on earth.

staying in north shore/lonesdale. Wondering if anyone is up for a ride. Looking for free flowing, technical stuff. Don't mind climbing hours for a good downhill or 2. Beers would be on me. :)

I am wondering how trail conditions are, Seymour, grouse, fromme and even over on the island. Duncan/mt. Tzaohalem.

Bringing my Giant Trance 650b.

cheers.

40th birthday ride(s)

Hi everyone! Yes, the big 40 is coming up in May.
I've had all kinds of ideas on what to do but what keeps making it to the top of the list is mountain biking. And 1st place that comes to mind is BC.
I've only been to Vancouver once and loved the city. I'd love to make it up there and welcome 40 with some amazing singletrack.
I have no idea on where to ride, trails etc… I'm looking for any help so I can still get out there and feel young..even at 40. : )
Even better, a local ride or chill group ride to join.
I still race and have been riding for 21 years now.
Any info etc… would be much appreciated.

thanks!
