Solo productions brings you a tight edit from Williams Lake, BC. It looks like a must-ride location for next summer! It sure doesn't remind me of last winter.

Another self-filmed edit. This time from New Zealand. Their riding scene is clearly checked-in. I loved the crappy car/truck drift at the beginning. The trail looks like amazing fun, with the exception of the baby head section(at least for me). That section looked intentionally installed, either for added gnar or as drainage for the wet season. What do you think?

Chris Akrigg: “A little while ago i thought it would be a good idea to put a freewheel on my fixie. I’d miss placed the brakes so i had to run it without, this wasn’t a good idea as i ended up wrapped round a tree. Anyway, i did manage to get a bit of footage before injury and then bad weather stopped play. It is what it is, whatever that is! A bit of fun on a 700c…”

We had a great turn out for the ride/dig day in the woods this past Sunday.

Things accomplished: A3 landing 'Happy Ending' got wider again, as did A2's landing.

Then lots of test riding ensued. Here's a few photos and a video

Trail proposal

We had a meeting recently with our contact at the City of Surrey, Jay Meneely and Nadia Chan. We are working with Jay on a plan for the proposed bike park at Invergarry Park. We are still waiting for the environmental assessment to wrap up. Jay tells us as soon as the assessment is done, we will be able to hold an open house in the early New year to put the idea of the park up for a public hearing, if there isn't opposition to the idea, the odds a very high that we will get a bike park at Invergarry. While we await the results of the environmental assessment, we have proposed a downhill pump trail similar to Half-Nelson, seen here

Summertime Schralping

So I decided to make a little video. Nothing too fancy, no black diamond extreme jump hot-dogging, just a little mountain biking not on the mountains.

Summer rain

We received 10-15mm of rain over the past couple of days. Just enough to pack our new landings, and start construction on the wider lips needed to make the lines dialed. Here's photos from yesterday at the woods:
