Video: Remy Metailler Follows Dylan Wolsky Down One of Squamish's Longest & Hardest Trails

Sep 7, 2019
by Rémy Métailler  


Is this the longest (legal) mountain bike lap in Squamish? Could be! Also one of the hardest ones!

I had ridden these two trails only once before and I will definitely go back! They are steep, technical and a lot of fun.

To lead me down Rigs in Zen and Pleasure Trail I followed Ergon Bike teammate: Dylan Wolsky (@dylanwolsky). He has been racing the Enduro World Series for several years and has also done multiple adventure races. Pleasure Trail is I think the best trail and starts at 5:26.

Trail Preview video with Dylan Wolsky on Rigs in Zen and Pleasure Trail.


If you enjoyed this trail and want to ride it, I advise you to join the Squamish Off Road Cycling Association, this way you will be able to support trails like this one! Thanks a lot to the trail builders for the work!

What trail should I ride next?

Thanks for watching, see you on the trails or Youtube

 It sounds like he's beating the boss on every level of a video game he really likes.

 That GoPro effect--didn't even recognize the tight chute on Rigs that I rode around because it was too steep. Didn't seem like Pleasure was much (any?) harder than Rigs. Loved 'em both.

 They skip that chute for some reason. It's on the right where a rider is standing at 2:53.

Pleasure is a masterpiece but no harder than Rigs.. both are borderline black/double black, nowhere near the hardest in Squamish.

 @ThunderBear: Really? What's harder? Moved away from squam in ~2014. Used to think Larvicide was pretty tech-gnar. Thought Pleasure trail was pretty hard when I rode it a year or 2 ago...

 @dglass: Treasure Trail, Chossy Schlabs, SourKraut, Tree Hugger, Dope Slope, Labour of Love, Silver Spoon, Gouranga (slab line and lower sections), Larvicide (new line), and a bunch more that aren't on the maps

 Nice, I rode rigs in zen yesterday for the first time, super fun trail. Didn't ride pleasure trail though (was on my own) - looks sick, that's one for next time!

 We are so fortunate to have trails like pretty much in our backyard. Pleasure is an instant masterpiece of trail-building! Nothing better than a Treasure to Pleasure loop when I'm in Squamish!

 Great to see these trails!
I’m a little surprised that the longest lap in Squamish is only just over 4km long!
Makes me realize that my home trails in Rossland are loooong by comparison.

 I think they mean the longest individual double-black trail. But it's true that the various trails in Squampton tend to be short (although you can link up plenty of long loops).

 There's def longer trails in terms of km. I think they mean it's one of the longest hard ones maybe? Rossland trails are for sure longer though.

 Awesome riders. My daughters watched and said "Dad can't do that."
They were right.

 These two trails are so gnarly, especially in the wet, but still you guys made it look like it's nothing.

 That's with a Hero 7 black with the setting Gopro media team recommended. But I have a solution for the next one hopefully!

 Agreed!
I tried to watch it on my TV and it was blurry and shaky whenever Rémy was moving...
