    Pics of a local favorite - River Runs Through It

    This is one best trails in the whistler area not on the mountain. Technical with some decent stunts. My buddy and I walked it to take some pics. Here is the fruits of our labour. These are the more interesting stunts, not always the hardest.

    This is the entrance to a funky stunt called Mikes GArage. You bike up anincline (there used to be a gap but most people couldn't make it so it has been connected) You bike through the tree turn right slightly and there is about a 2footer to another skinny where you then jump onto another skinny about 1 ft away and then roll off.

    This is the entrance from theground. You end up about 4 ft off the ground give or take. (up around mychest so maybe 5) The last one is the three steps at the end.

    It does happen. Have some more too (I suck a pic taking. Way to lazy to stop and take pics when I could be riding this stuff)

    That drawbridge looks neat. Does the cable apparatus pull the front of the second lip down?

    Yep...I thought I had a pic of it mid action. Guess it didn't make the cut. Yeah you bike up the log turn left onto the teeter. It drops...as it drops you roll across the centre piece (fast enough to keep one side down and slow enough to not hit it as it drops) and then roll it.

    Way more humid in ontario. Just rain here. And yes...if you can't ride in the rain you would have4 months a year to ride. Besides it takes way more skill to ride when its wet then in most other conditions (except winter riding of course)

    This is an odd stunt. Skinny on top...roll off to skinny then you need speed to gap to the lastone. The top most part (with the SS on it) bows when you get on it...moving parts

    Pass the Sugar....thats this approx 200 yard long turning and twisting log ride. Definately the most technical thing in there. At one point your tire is 8 ft off the ground (the first pic where you see the trail go under a log...the bottom of the log is 6ft up) Comes equipped with a teeter right on the skinny. The farthest point on the teeter is around 7 ft off the ground before it slams down onto the log.

    Thats it. My camera was pissing me off and we only walked about half the trail. There are other bigger stunts (10 ft above a rapid on a log... for example) Enjoy. Sorry for the poor quality...but I really don't takepics often

    I justwish I fit through it...I am too tall and to wide. (it was a dead tree so no harm done. And no stunts are nailed to live trees. This is an enviro friendly trail (most of the old woodwork is there to bypass water runoffs or save the undergrowth

    I would think it near impossible to have anything like that in the US due to law/civil-suit happy public and out of control insurance rates!
