Thanks again for the link. This is sure to cut down on my productivity.
There are shuttles up but a lot of the riders pedal up the mountain to get to the trails. Some of the ones on cypress are in fact xc. They are just very exposed and technical so wearing armour is more or less required. Some are very steep and technical requiring full on dh gear. Some of the stunted trails are obviously freeride specific. But really the reason why stunts started was to stop the erosion cause by riders. Now it is more than that, but the practice still stands for enviro protection. If you saw the north shore (sea...mountain) there is no casual rides. You can't just go out and ride for the sake of riding. Very little easy stuff in the area. (cypress is a BIG mountain
I do my best. Work is overrated
I love those things, but why does it have to be all soggy and wet and humid? (I think).
Its what make the lowermainland of bc so technical. An average rider in bc is technically more skilled than most. That and...WE LIVE IN A RAINFOREST....(it isn't humid. Onterrible is humid...bc is wet...imagine a cooling mist over heavy air)
