Without a doubt, Kelowna has some of the best riding during the fall. Emmett has finished his race season and has now settled back into his hometown trails!

 Wow, those are the driest and most leaf-free fall trails I've seen. Very jealous, guess I need to find some tall pines to ride in. Here in NY the trails are calf-deep fluffy leaves with greasy mud underneath with downed trees and derailleur ripping branches scattered about. Good times!

 Makes it take longer for the trails to dry in the spring too.

 @Tinga: Get out there with a rake early then

 @heffernw: I think most of us would prefer our leaf blowers.

 @Tinga: Not bad but can't condition the dirt as well

 @heffernw: if you get the leaves off there is a small chance a freeze will happen putting trails into the best conditions all year.

 If you blow leaves off in winter your dirt will wash away. Leaves help replenish the tread and protect trails.

 To me it doesn't really matter whether it is slippery or hard and dry. I just don't really like it when the trails become so soggy that they'll suck you down or clog up your drivetrain. And going in there would obviously destroy the trails too. Then again too dry and dusty and it will rob your speed too and again you'll be destroying the soil. So basically you can ride year 'round but in very dry times avoid certain (sandy) trails and in very wet times avoid the soggy muddy trails and you'll be good.

 @ChuckFinn: in new York the leaves fall inches deep. If you want to keep bikers on the trail they have to be able to see it.

 @Tinga: f&*% leaf blowers.

 Not to take away from the edit, but was hoping the fall colours popped a bit more. Desaturating in colour grading took away one of my favourite things about riding in fall which is the vibrancy out there. Otherwise, good edit.

 This Fall did turn out really nice. The colors really popped this year.

 @Lyman29: Oh gosh, that's horrible. I'm sorry man.

 @Lyman29: Believe me, the Northeast looks nothing like that this year. Did you see the French National Championships? Picture that.

 Well, at least he made it to college. It can literally only get better from here on out . Onwards and upwards.

 Love fall riding! I have to say one of my pet peeves is when a video has the guy wearing his armour on the outside of his clothing. Just looks dumb. Other then that nice riding and cool trails
