Video: Geoff Gulevich Rides Dilapidated North Shore Skinny Trails on his eMTB

Sep 27, 2020
by Geoff Gulevich  

Testing out my new EBike, the FOCUS Bikes JAM² , on some classic north shore trails. The first trail, "Salvation", I didn't know was still standing. A few rickety boards and structures made it pretty interesting. Then "Boogie Man" is always a classic and getting better every year with it's awesome improvements.

Filmed on my @GoPro HERO9black

 Can you imagine being so insecure that you call out the haters before anyone even mentioned it.

 @mollow: he’s got nothing better to do on his Sunday aft. All the people who ride real bikes have already gone out for a ride/are currently out there. He’s gonna be waiting a while

 I still dont understand how we can filter out ebike stuff but not XC stuff?

Wait, Im probably asking the wrong crowd as you all still havent figured out how to filter ebike stuff yet...

 Everyone knows that the ebikes make riding a lot easier so there’s no way he could’ve ridden those Skinnies on a regular bike. Not only that, It’s obvious that ebikes destroy trails because those Skinnies were in perfect condition immediately before he started riding on them..
There is no way that climate change and read will destroy humanity because ebikes will do it long before then...

 That was a leap of faith going down the teeter totter on Salvation, I haven’t seen anyone ride it for years, I thought it was decommissioned.

 Well mate, I’ve been checking into Pb for 20 years. Many other sites when I’m online which is rarely ever. Being involved in moto, surf, mtb industries over last 35 years I’ve always been on the participants side, not glued to Pb home page for 16 years, that’s your job.
Sounds like a prison to me.
You’re doing well as a comedian here!
Cheers mate @owlie:

 I would probably die 8 to 13 times if I wanted to ride and filmed this track :-)
What a sick rider and what a sick video.
I wonder how many of us “forum semipros” can ride there...

 That was awesome

 Geoffs videos always make me want to go ride. I dont get all the negative comments on here, i personally dislike ebikes but I see one being ridden properly, not just hacking along a tow path.

 Such great riding on Boogieman! Probably spent 100 or more hours on that trail years ago. Time to get back over there. Really great to see the "Hamburglar" again!

 Sick Skinny skills Gully! Also dig the narrating. I didn't even know he was on an ebike until he mentioned it in the video.

 Boogeyman is my favourite trail of all time. Miss you! 3

 At least he didn't ride up the trail. Ask Griz at Deity about that.
