Rad trail. Loam trail with plenty of steeps. Good times.

Our trip is almost over. Another week of epic trails. A Toonie race. My birthday. A downhill pumptrack. And the Sun is shining... Its gonna be hard to get back into it on our return to melbourne. Luckily i'm keen to create some dirt joy, Aussie style.

Half Way Through

2 weeks done of our Whistler trip and we've covered heaps of trails. There are still plenty to go and sadly it seems that there is always something just around the next corner to checkout and ride.... If only we had unlimited time. Maybe I will win the lotto when we get back.

I've been taking heaps of photos are some videos, a helmet cam is yet to appear so i don't have any super cool vids yet.

All my photos have been uploaded here for those not on facebook, over 300 so far to checkout and with the slowest laptop ever I am having to limit the uploads onto the blog.

So with the sun peaking out from the clouds its time for another ride... Up the 27 switchbacks of the flank trail we go..... more pics to come. Enjoy!!

A day in Squamish.

More pics of riding and stuff

Plenty to do and see in Whistler town. Some fancy wheels have been popping up here and there. this one was in the carpark out front of our apartment...


Super cool muscle car. Plus some monster trucks and Company cars...


The RockShox F350 SuperDuty.

Haven't spent much time checkin out the shops tho, plenty of riding to do and views ahoy...


Awesome views from the Flank Trail.


Near the start of Trash.


Sweet trail with a natural gravel surface.


I figured out how to use the camera timer!!


Some cool bridges on Cheap Thrills. Double Black Diamond, i only walked 2 of the rock drops...


Across the river and around. Then drop off more rocks... I dropped my saddle to ride this trail... A seat dropper is totally justified here.


Rock slab riding of Beaver Pass, this dropped into some tight singletrack with plenty of roots to bounce off. definately better with the seat down an inch or so...

Another one handed riding video on the Flank Trail. Hopefully i can borrow a GoPro helmet cam for some sweet trail ripping action.

Whistler Week 1

first week is almost over and its been a bit of a roller coaster.

Starting with a 3am wakeup call on monday morning to get to the airport for our 6am flight. Thanks to Rhino for volunteering for that one.

After checking in our bikes with no dramas(thanks QANTAS, they didn't even weigh them, legends) we boarded the plane for a quick trip to Aukland then onto another plane to LA. Watched 4 movies between Melbourne and LA, played solitaire, slept, ate etc...

Thanks to the marvels of air travel we arrived in LA 6:30am on the same day we left melbourne. Sadly this was where our trip took a turn.

LAX is shit. no other way to put it. I made the mistake of only giving us 2.5hours to get from our plane, get our bikes, recheck our bikes and board our next flight. LAX was having none of it and we waited at passport control for over an hour. got our bikes and rushed our re-checkin, sprinted to terminal 8 and then got stuck in another que.

Connecting flight missed.

thankfully the United checkin people got us on another flight via Denver the next day so we had a night in a LA hotel and another 6am flight. Our bikes were somewhere in the airport hopefully to be put on a plane heading to Vancouver....

Denver is a nice airport. Vancouver is way better.

Sadly our bikes didn't make it. They weren't allowed to arrive before us so were being shipped on a later flight to arrive at 9pm. Because it was 4pm the baggage people organised to have the bikes delivered to our accommodation. "Should arrive by midnight..." So after we checked in at our accom we waited. And waited. and waited.... by 2am i gave up. Left a note on the front door with our numbers just in case and tried to get some sleep. 4am the phone rings and our bikes are here!

So dramas over it was time to get ourselves settles and head out on the trails....


The view from our apartment


Fresh bridge on A River Runs Through It. Sweet.


Rocks and roots. Plenty of tech to ride..
