I've been riding since the early 90's and have gone from riding these trails on rigid bikes, hard tails and thankfully now on bikes with more and plusher suspension!

Lots of different ages in this race! Every one was enjoying the moody day of north shore riding.

Opinion - It Should Be Hard, Shouldn't it?
IMO maintenance should be done to ensure the trail is 'safe' to ride that water isn't eroding the trail further or pooling on the trail. By Safe, I don't mean dumbed down, I mean if the trail is falling apart such that the consequence of falling is great for even the most experienced rider can be dire, or if its a rutted mess such that water is constantly running down the trail or puddling. Fix It. BUT when you are in an place where the amount of riders increases the trail WILL become easier. Best example is Boogiman on Seymour. It was always classified as a DIFFICULT trail. Don't ride it unless you can ride it, so people come and figure, how hard can it be? I'm going to ride it, then they realize its hard. Walk AROUND the stunts, if you have one or two people a week doing this, then whatever, but now you have 100's riding Seymour a week, now you can have 50 people who think they can ride this and can't, so they too walk around, next thing you know you have an established ride around. Work has been done on this trail but IMO the work was needed since things were falling apart and there was too much water on the trail. But the ridearounds are in and now a part of the trail. Is this bad? Well I think its human nature to take the easy path, if the easy option is there people will ride it. What is protecting the whistler trails from being dumbed down is that WINTER closes them every year so people aren't riding them when its really wet so water is mostly off the trails, also its relatively dry in Whistler so water erosion isn't as much of a factor as it is in North Vancouver. I think its a numbers game, the more people that ride the easier trails will become.

Opinion: Friends Don't Let Friends Ride E-Bikes
I think if people are too unfit and lazy to want to ride an ebike, they will be too weak to ride an ebike on a trail...
