Be there...beer is still free!!



Two thousand and ten was an interesting year. I found myself spending countless hours in the backcountry exploring terrain, hoping to find unique places to ride bicycles. Over the course of the fall, we had the opportunity to ride in alpine boulder fields, sub alpine meadows, rock ridgelines, and old growth forests, all within 50 km's of the mountain bike motherland - Squamish

One of my favourite locations was discovered by my roommate Stu. In May, there was a small forest fire in the mountains near Squamish. As soon as the fire was out, Stu and I headed up there to check it out. As we drove into the location, we immediately knew that this was going to be a perfect zone to build and film. The fire burnt down two hectares of old growth forest and left a black loamy desert overlooking the Howe Sound inlet. With the unique terrain and the amazing backdrop, it was a no-brainer.


"The Burn" quickly became one of the main focuses for the production of 'You Like This'.


Kevin and I spent countless hours building our lines in the worst weather conditions to get the right shots for the film.


Mountain biking in new zones and building mountain bike lines, with the end goal of filming a segment for 'You Like This', was a pretty cool way to spend the fall. Building trail is a lot of fun when you are surrounded by people who are as passionate about the sport as you are. Big thanks to Stu Baxter, Pat Foster, Brad Martyn, Justin Schoonbaert and of course Taylor Loughran for helping me create, build, and shoot some of these great lines.

 they aren't cut outs, they are just worn in from years of handlebar abuse. Especially as the bars get wider. I can never get mine through argh.
