Looking for a great way to kick off the season? Look no further! Western Canada's ultimate cycling event is coming to Vancouver and Calgary. In response to the consumer demand and the phenomenal growth of the biking industry, national event management is launching the bike expo. For all of you biking enthusiasts, this event will feature the industry's leading manufacturers, retailers, clubs, and bike competitions.
Last Saturday, November 11th, Radek and I attended the private showing of Bow Cycle's Classic Collection. This grand opening attracted somewhere between two to three hundred bike fanatics, industry people and media.
In it's 5th year of existence, this awesome show conveys Brian Sibthorpe's love and passion for bicycling. Brian, the owner and operator of Bow Cycle and Sports in Calgary has been collecting antique bicycles for well over 15 years.
I know this is a biking website. But just like me, many of you are ski and/or snowboard bums. For those of you living in Alberta/BC area here is what's happening at the mountain resorts.
Lake Louise is officially open with 3 out of 11 lifts running.
Sunshine Village and Fortress mountain will open on November 17th with Banff Mt Norquay and Fernie following on December 1.
Expected opening date for both Nakiska and Kimberley is December 8.

Here is a clip from the boys that starred, filmed and produced, Hidden Pleasure. This is one of the better films of the year. Shot on location in the Kootneays. Mostly the Nelson area, this film embodies the love to ride. Unlike the "plastic" feel of some of the Kranked and NWD films, Hidden Pleasures really brings it home. Every time I watch this tape I get the feeling of what it is like to rip it up with my buds and instantly I crave the feel of my grips and the wind in my face. I can only attribute the difference of this film to the fact that it is filmed and produced by the riders.
If I ever make a film I would want it to convey the same essence and atmosphere that I see in Hidden Pleasures.
Not shown in this clip, Hidden Pleasures has THE BADEST huck I have ever seen on film. Yes, that's taking into account Benders 60 footer in NWD. "Mike Kinrade, you're f*ckin' CRAZY!" On my copy of the tape the cemetery gap is completely worn out from watching it over and over again.
