Starting May of 2013, Martin Newman
tackled what seemed like the impossible task of fixing the forgotten North Shore
classic that is Severed Dick
. Once a popular line that any ride on Mount Seymour
would include, the trail had suffered from high traffic, water erosion and a lack of maintenance.
|I thought it was a shame the trail was in such poor shape and thought someone should do something about it. -Martin Newman|
|That was the start of my addiction. After a few months, a friend, Penny Deck came out one day to lend a hand and also got hooked. -Martin Newman|
|I'm proud of what we've done, and people seem to like it. Bikers, hikers, and runners! -Martin Newman|
Penny Deck samples the goods and enjoys the labour of love she too has invested in.
In addition to a complete revamp of Severed D
, Martin and the NSMBA created a new entrance off of the Baden Powell. A quick but fun, flowy line used in this years BC Bike Race
Stage 1 on the North Shore
Riders during the BCBR sample the hard work done by Martin and the NSMBA.
