 For a guy that travels around the world riding his bike, it means a lot to hear that BC will always be his favorite place to ride and be. Reason number 4,567 to move to Canada...

 i thought you would only need one reason to move to Canada.!

 He only needs one, but which one?

 Its pretty warm in my igloo.

 When I tell people I'm from Canada, they say "oh wow you guys got some great trails up there! what are you doing riding here for?" but the truth is that it's just BC. BC is a phenomenon, it's a beast of its own. the rest of Canada wants to move to BC too
  • + 5
 Yeah, I'm from Ontario, but moving to BC in a week ahaha. 50% of the reason is the riding, the other 50% is those life things that enable you to actually justify such a huge move.

 seriously re-considering my decision to move to kamloops next year.

 Its really awesome/weird to see Darren talking about slednecking and boarding like mtbing with the first descents and all, considering that those aren't even close to touching what he rides on a bike or what first drops mostly entails now in skiing/snowboarding. That was awesome though, really enjoyed that.

 Yes......Word..... BC is awsome. The peeps of BC have a sick idea of whats fun. Those sick Free Ride bikes you ride. We created the mentality to build the sick trails that warrant the need for Freeride bikes. As for the other sports ill try em out when i hit my 60,s

 no red bull playgrounds in Switzerland, that's a shame. however, this video is just the perfect summary of why BC is the best place on earth. Which I could live there!

 Tell me about it, England's shite for riding,I'd kill to blast down some mountain runs with that sort of view. We've taken so many illegal immigrants in here, I figure its only fair I become one and sneak into Canada :-)

 The interior/okanagan = All that, minus the ocean....and hippies.

 there's plenty of hippies in the interior... look at the Nelson area...
  • + 2
 hahaha... being a Nelson local I can vouch for that! Especially right now, the week after the Shambhala festival.

 ..and I should point out that the Kootenays are famous for the best powder in the world... it's lighter and fluffier than coastal snow.

 You can easily tell that a lot of people have sledded up there before just by looking at the packed trail going up
