The North Shore of Vancouver, BC, is a wonderfully challenging quagmire of a riding destination. Its fame yet relatively low number of visitors make it especially unique. One could make a good argument that it might simply still be overshadowed by its prior fame as a treacherous series of the hardest obstacles possible, mixed with copious amounts of rain.

Classic woodwork, thank you Digger!

A dude from California, on a trail that made wet woodwork famous!

Legions of riders make the trek to Whistler, only a couple hours north, but only a small percentage of those actually stop in to ride the Shore. Is it the lack of a chairlift to reach the trails? Or is it the wet wood, which threatens to send even the most careful of riders directly to their collarbones?

Any guesses about the age of this bridge?

The region’s trails were initially renowned not just for the nests of shiny and slick cedar roots crisscrossing the riding line, but for the elevated bridges that allowed the bikes of the 1990s to make it down those same tracks. We have all seen imitations of this woodwork pop up on everything from race courses to old rock quarries. When taken out of context, woodwork can be a point of contention. However, on the actual North Shore, the wood work has a very real purpose.

Not a huge move by any means, but a more direct way of getting down the double roll feature.

One of the original classics, Ladies Only, is not a particularly difficult trail, especially when considered within the scope of the rest of the trails on the North Shore. However, it’s a quintessential “classic”, as it is filled with wooden features. Over the years, the trail has been more and more dialled in. Modern trail bikes are far more competent than the hardtails and URT bikes of yesteryear. This all comes together to make what was once an absolute pucker-fest into a trail that might be described as “a fun challenge”.

Brief sections of concrete sure help to increase the average trail speed!

This is the North Shore. Over 44 inches of annual rainfall!

Meeting Digger and riding a classic is a dream come true. Thanks to the NSMBA for keeping these trails open and public!

Thanks to a new sponsor, PNW Components, I headed up to the Shore with the goal to ride a classic trail, but with a new school perspective. I’ve been riding mountain bikes for a long time now, really falling in love with the sport in the late 1990s, right in what I consider to be the Shore’s heyday. After a couple decades of racing, returning to wet bridges and skinnies is a bit like seeing an old grade school friend and realizing they’ve changed over the years, but under that different look, finding out that he’s still the same bud as way back when. I can’t wait to get back to the Shore!

Lower Ladies Only is more technical than the upper section of trail – a total treat to look forward to while focusing on the bridges!

 If you get the chance to ride Fromme and plan on doing Ladies or Expresso, take a treat for Digger, He's ALWAYS out there. I also ride Ladies on my back wheel a lot - mostly with my feet on the ground, pushing the bike in front of me.

 Ok there's Nino for XC, Sam Hill for Enduro, Aaron Gwin for Dh and I vote Jeff Kendall-Weed is officially the best just riding along dude on the planet. Sorry Kirt Voreis, you lose that. You get gold in Singletrack-side-violence discipline. Oh my god Jeff... that was the best.

 I'd put Chris Akrigg up on that list for that spot - nothing stops him and he can throw down some style- they should do a vid together.

 Agreed! Jeff is so good that he would find flow even on the gnarliest trails.

 He's a bit too mellow for me. Is there a Jeff Kendall-Cocaine I can follow. Riding like George Brannigan with a concussion. Highsiding every turn, going over the bars, music is something by Lemmy.

 Lars Sternberg and Luke Strobel. Those two pretty much always get me amped to ride. Every one else is nice to look at, but Lars and Luke are on another level. Kenny Smith too, even if he's a little too "metal" for me (but just a little).
  • + 3
 @employee7: that was “just riding along” nominee, not the most-hardcore non-racing shredder with instagram account. Bryn is amazing at cornering, purr Joy to watch. Chris Akrigg is unbelievable but his videos are quite scripted and directed whereas you see here that Jeff is just riding a trail with not that many takes. That’s what I also love about Ali Clarksons and Ben Cathros VLOG not much directing.

 @scott-townes: Jeff Lenosky is a great dude and a total shredder!!!

 @striveCF15: Bryn is an amazing rider, and has a way cool and unique style!

 @slyfink: Lars and Luke are total shredders! I love riding with Lars, and need to reconnect with Luke, I only met him briefly years and years ago!

 @JeffWeed: I know I've asked before (on your YouTube channel), but it would be great to see you shred with Phil Kmetz. He's one of my favorite riders along with you and both of you reunited in the same vid would be out of this world!

 @WAKIdesigns: Agree with everything you said but no one should ever forget Bryn speeds up his videos. That's worse than e-bikes with 28.99 bottom brackets.

Check 0:32. Unless the gravity on that mountain is extra strong that bad boy is sped up.

 @employee7: Nothing there to suggest that video is "sped up".
  • + 4
 @employee7: Nope - I don't think there's any video trickery. Having seen him and his wife blow by on our local trails, he is that damn fast (and makes it look annoyingly smooth and easy).
  • + 2
 @g-42: no doubt the dude is fast. He was a wc racer. The trail debris the comes off his tire at 32 seconds is moving up and down much faster than 9.81m/s2. It bumps me when fast guys do that. They don’t need it.
  • + 3
 @employee7: the rock in the shot at 0:32 is going fast because it got kicked up by his tire. He's going fast as heck but certainly not beyond what's imaginable for that (rowdy and fun) trail.

 @employee7: I'm sorry but you're simply a jackass.

 @employee7: And, and, check out the squirrel at 1:03 - I don't they go that fast...

 @JeffWeed: oh man, if you could do an edit with those two, that would be awesome. Your riding looks so controlled and slick, and their riding looks so rowdy. would be cool to see the two together. do it!

 @slyfink: Thanks, I'd sure love to! I
  • + 1
 @neimbc: Yeah but when you watch Akrigg ride you think to yourself “No f#%king way! I’m never gonna be able to pull that off.” Watching Jeff ride makes you think “yeah I could do that with a bit more skills training/practice” ( you fall utterly short of course) because he flows so beautifully it hides the technical level that he’s riding at. If that makes sense. He’s not a show off in the traditional sense.
  • + 1
 @fattyheadshok: Yes I absolutely agree, Jeff is an incredibly talented rider, that I couldn't come close to aspiring to let alone Akrigg. I just meant that Chris A, is a fantastic rider as well, who can ride as well and still do the "no-way" stuff too. Jeff is jello smooth. When you get down to it - every rider is gifted and unique in their style. How do they ride those manuals?
  • + 27
 i feel like us lower mainland riders are just so lucky, i look at this and think oh ya cool, i should ride the shore after work when there are people who travel from all over just to experience it once. definitely take it for granted sometimes. we are so insanely blessed with the trail networks that surround us.

 You guys have some amazing trails! Big thanks to the NSMBA and all the builders!

 Absolutely! I had the chance to ride in the Vancouver area, Squamish and of course Whistler for one week and all what I heard about it was not even close to reality. This is MTB paradise!

 @Mystyle: That makes a long trip, though... Wink
  • + 2
 Yeah you are lucky. I used to work for a company that had their R&D in Richmond. I used to bring my bike and ride either Froome, Seymour, or Cypress after work everyday. Then on what was suppose to be my travel day home, I would hit up Whistler for some park action. THose days are gone and the only thing I miss about working for that company was going to Vancouver 5 times a year.

 I wouldn't say I suck at riding Ladies Only mostly because everyone else says it for me!
  • + 14
 Besides being a fantastic rider, Jeff's production and marketing skills are some of the best I ever see in the outdoor industry. He always presents a positive feel about the places, sponsors, and everyone who makes his work possible, divvying out credit to others left and right.I think he has a bright future in his off the bike business future.
  • + 5
 Thank you Brian! That means a lot. I spent 10 years working on the supplier side of the industry, and left those gigs to focus on my family, as well as being able to make content like this. Hopefully in a couple more years I'll be able to return to the desk job life safe and sound!
  • + 1
 @JeffWeed: Why in god’s name would you ever want to go back to riding a desk, staring at spreadsheets when you can ride like you do? You’re truly a joy to watch on a Mtb, and an inspiration to all of us mere mortals as we go out to shred our local trails! Because unlike folks like Akrigg and Atkinson, whose riding simply looks unobtainable. (No one on this rock can corner like Bryn. And seriously who the hell can handle a road bike like Akrigg?) But watching you ride... you make it look so easy and flowy that it actually hides the technicality of what you’re doing. Your understated style makes everyone that watches you wanna push their limits and skills that much harder to become a better rider. There’s plenty of folks who can pilot a desk sir.

 Although some of the trails have been dumbed down a bit (read made for bermy/flowy), there are still some gems on the shore that take one back to the 90's. Pipeline is a particular favourite of mine on Mt. Fromme, and Dales Trail, BoogieMan or Severed D on Seymour.
If you're visiting Whistler, it really is worth it to take 2 or 3 days and ride Squamish and the North Shore.
I'd recommend Pipeline trail over Ladies Only to start (they both share a similar starting point) as Pipeline is a little friendlier and has tons of really cool features.
Ride up Fromme to Seventh Secret, then ride Leopard trail, then finish with Pipeline or Ladies only. If you found Seventh challenging, ride Pipeline, if you want more gnar, do Ladies Only.
I seem to recall Ladies Only to be particularly challenging to ride without dabbing, (or injuring myself, for that matter) but the last time I rode it was 2 years ago on a 2003 hardtail.
I've been riding here for 20+ years, still not even close to bored, but I have named some of the rocks and trees because I see them so oftenSmile
  • + 8
 Agree so much! I spend equal time on both new and old. I love how the new school slowly turns back into old school. Remember the original Executioner rebuild? It went from death gnar to super buff and then over the next 5 years back to gnar (now it’s buff again thanks to recent work). Always a great challenge. Even the smooth North Shore trails have challenging moves and tight corners and little squeaky moves that make one pucker up. Long live the North Shore!

 I started reading your post and thought: "oh man, this guy is talking about dumbing down trails I'm going to have to post and tell him about Pipeline"...

Only thing you forgot to mention was Bookwus.

 Really nice! I love to ride really blocked out trails where you sometimes have to just go super slow. For me that is pure flow, since flow is not defined by the trail. It rather is a mindset. Epic work right there!

 How the hell aren't those wood features soapy slick when wet? It takes about a year and any wooden feature in in our woods are slick as ice when wet do to algae growth. It's worst in the summer.
  • + 18
 rough split cedar
  • + 1
 Yeah, I was thinking the same thing.
  • + 2
 They can get slick too - it all depends on how much they are ridden and how old they are. However, as @LaXcarp said, rough cut cedar is an amazing wood!
  • + 4
 they are
  • + 2
 They get extra slick if they don't get ridden often. You how how to cruise them without trying to tell them what to do.
  • + 2
 @LaXcarp: old growth red cedar at that. Oily shit that doesnt rot or get algae as fast.
  • + 3
 they do. it's why people out there are a) great riders, and b) obsessed with sticky rubber.
  • + 1
 Also there's some bike handling skills involved. If you filmed me trying to get down that, my bike would be slipping out from under me every 2 seconds, because I suck apparently. I've had the wonderful experience of slipping off a wood feature right after a better rider rolled right over it.
  • + 6
 The older features, that are darker, are much more slick than the brighter colored features. Super soft tire rubber helps, and honestly, the 29" wheels helped too.
  • + 6
 Video shows a double black rating (2:04) while the text says "trail is not the gnarliest trail on the shore by any means, with a blue/black rating". Why the difference?
  • + 5
 Yeah, not sure what's up with that. It is definitely rated double black, but that is mainly for 1 or 2 moves (one of which he jumped over!!) and the technical/old school end section which most people bypass by riding the "Big Stupid" ending trail instead. Ridden with the Big Stupid end, it's basically a sustained/harder single black.

It's definitely not a blue / black though.
  • + 6
 There is a photo of Expresso and it’s also where they were hanging out with Digger; Expresso is blue/black. Ladies Only is definitely sustained double black, about as hard as mapped trails get here regardless of the amount of work to the trail or the increasing quality of bikes or Jeff’s alien skills amd jumping over the hard parts.
  • + 9
 I think he rated it like that because for the most part he's four feet above the trail!
  • + 7
 The section at 3:40 is one of the most deceptively difficult features I've ridden... The gap between the roots is the perfect size to swallow up your entire front wheel.

 What's especially different to european trails is the magical wood that doesn't get as slippy as a slug when it rains. So jealous.

  • + 1
 Thanks Tom!
  • + 1
 @mollow: Definitely not as. In European Bikeparks most wood isn't even rideable in the dry when there is no mesh fence on it. Lot's of parks close their *north shore* trails when it's wet because they're too dangerous.

 @colincolin: My wife broke her arm in January in Florida on a wet bridge covered in algae. The rough cedar in BC is a little grippier than normal lumber, but it still gets slick.

 nice work jeff & logan, as always.¡¡¡¡
i cool than no to much people go there, the magic of the place still remain and that´s something with much more value than a chair lift.

  • + 2
 people aren't not riding this trail because it lacks "flow", they don't ride it because it's mega gnarly. I've ridden most of the single black trails (not well though) on the shore and Ladies only has a pile of features that were so much nope. It's been commented on a few times now but at 3:10 that gap he hits, I couldn't figure out how you could take that roll in and turn to the right to get down the trail. Turns out the real trail is just to send it. I refuse to write smh so shaking my head will have to do. The move at 3:40 is equally insane. If you don't wheelie into that rock roll the first roll in will send you OTB and it's about a 2" drop into that nice smooth rocky downy bit. FML that's not an easy move
  • + 3
 Rode that trail many times, so good. Never even saw that line he took at around 3:10 and made look super easy. Still not likely I would hit it but be interesting to look at it in person.
Nice edit and riding !!!
  • + 2
 Thanks rsidedown! We rolled up to the ladder to rock thing and the first thing I thought was "man, there's gotta be a smoother, faster way down this". It's not a very big gap or anything, just bunnyhop off the flat part of the bridge to catch that natural backside on the rock, and voila, you'll gap it just fine!

Is there the slightest possibility that you'll team up with MacAskill and/or Akrigg one day to shoot the craziest video ever ?? That would be a dream come true !

Also, do you still take part in any kind of races ?

Keep up the amazing work, thank you very much !

 Thanks man, I appreciate the note! I don't know Danny or Chris but hope to meet them one day- maybe I'll find Danny at Sea Otter next weekend! I stopped racing in 2016 when our baby was born. I always did OK, but was rarely the quickest guy of the day. I had sponsorship for videos in 2017 and it was not contingent on continuing racing, and I still had my full time office job as well. Now there's no way I could focus this hard on videos and still be competitive at racing- it's a whole different skill set than the vids!

 Great vid Jeff! Say a couple questions for you...I am going to be purchasing a HD4 or a Ripmo in the next couple of weeks. My first Ibis...I am so excited : ) I am coming off a Bronson 2.0 150/27.5...so neither one should feel too crazy for me. Any advice between the two? their likes/differences? does it mostly come down to wheel size or they have different personalities? And lastly...what pedals do you use...i'm growing into more techy stuff now and wondering if i should go flats or stick with clipless but move to something that releases a bit easier...thanks bud!!
  • + 2
 Thanks man! I did a vid about this on my YouTube channel a couple weeks ago. Basically the HD4 is killer for super gnarly, steep stuff, or for lots and lots of jumping. It's got a great, playful feel and is super slack and long. The Ripmo can handle just about all the gnar that the HD4 can, but is a bit more of an all arounder. To be more specific, if I lived in Whistler and rode the bike park all the time, I'd probably rock the HD4, but for a wider variety of riding, the Ripmo is great. The differences aren't too terribly huge, both bikes are great!

I ride both clips and flats. Oddly enough I am more confident with the clips, so that's what I use for 95% of the stuff we're filming. Cheers!
  • + 1
 @JeffWeed: Thank so much Jeff for taking a moment to respond. I have no idea how you keep up with all the questions/comments. I actually found those videos today you are speaking about...very helpful. Touch choice indeed....I will enjoy the debate in my head for a while and see which one wins! Thanks Again....

 @cd42huthut: Cheers man! I try to be as approachable as I can! Yeah both bikes are sweet, it's a great "dilemma"! And to make it more confusing some other bloggers have differing opinions as well. Good luck!

 I got to ride this stuff with Woodro a few years ago. What a treat coming from Wisconsin!! The most terrifying single track I've ever managed. NSMBA was working on adding more flow to Mt Seymour at the time, but the old skool was very present and didn't fail to thrill. Thanks for the share!!

 Am I as good as Jeff? Not even kind of. But having ridden East Coast for most of my time I know I can find flow on anything. Oh yeah, and Ray's. I've ridden East Coast and Ray's for the majority of my riding. So ready for the PNW!!

 When I ride that trail it looks different than this guy.

 With all due respect, Jeff Weed makes riding this trail look easy, which it most certainly isn't. Nicely done.

 What is that Red and Black bike that Morgan is riding???

 It's a loaner bike, some sort of original proto from Rocky. The bike is currently in production and I am blanking on the name!

 I believe it is a RM Thunderbolt

 It is the new Thunderbolt. You don't need long travel for the Shore. Just ask the guy that continues to ride this trail on his hard tail!

 @tomjedimaster: What is the Travel on this bad boy?? Think I need this!!!!

I'd love to see you ride first hand!

 That is a real trail vs a scar - machine builders take note...
  • + 1
 There's a time and a place for both! Our local trails just got logged a few months ago, and some machine built stuff has popped up already, which is great because we can actually get back to riding asap! At the same time, the hand built stuff is sooooo nice!

 Holy Molly, this trail is mindblowingly awesome!

 Hey Jeff what van are you using? And do you sleep in it when on road trips?
  • + 1
 Hey Joe, it's a Promaster that I built out to haul 2x motos in the rear. It has a removable bed over the rear seat in the cabin portion. I have a vid about it up on my YouTube channel. I have slept in it less than 20 nights, but that's mostly due to family responsibilities. I'll be re-building it soon though, and using a Sprinter bench seat to increase capacity to 5 seatbelts.

 What is that bag on the top of the fork? Just to keep debrise and water out?
  • + 1
 That's a piece of inner tube to cut down on mud and debris getting into my face. Works really well!

 Smooth as butter JKW! keep shredding!
