by Geoff Gulevich  

Checking out some of the gnarliest chutes around, right here in Williams Lake BC. Dropping in with local legend, Cory Brunelle.

I was on my @FOCUS Bikes SAM² Ebike, just to make it more exciting.

 1:55 i missed it until you mentioned it. Had to go back to see Bad Idea Billy get bucked in the cloud of dust. You know when you see someone jump off a dock into rough surf, backwash, or shore breakers...yeah that dude. God love em.

 Good thing having the e-bike. Looked like he needed the extra power and speed on the way down.

 @Gulevich87 is there a point to grabbing brakes throughout the chute or do you hold off and let the tires roll focusing on staying loose and making shapes? What are some tips on turning in steep sandy looseness like that?
Cheers

 Yeah, you should try and scrub as much speed as you can, otherwise, you're going to have a bad time

 @Gulevich87: Also whats the ethic here? Rule of ride don't slide seems out of place. NS loamers get torn to poop but if there steep enough there is nothing you can do but replace missing loam with stone where needed. If I were to travel out to Williams Lake and ride this stuff would it be frowned upon by the locals or is it more of a if you can find it ride it?

 @monsieurgage: when bike surfing a cutback or chute like this the ‘ride don’t slide‘ doesn’t apply! Farwell Canyon rules are do what ya gotta to survive lol.

 @freeinpg: Can that be a thing? If there is a book of BC free ride, can "Farwell Canyon Rule #1" be in there? I like it. Gonna use it.

BC Free Ride
1) Take don't tell = NO strava on the darkside ya hose heads!
2) Ride don't slide.
3) Farwell Canyon Rule, do what you gotta do to survive. Supersedes rule 2 in event of mach chicken speed even after lever to bar death grip.
4) Small wheels never die.
5) ... I'm sure Geoff has a few more
