Old School - Chromag's Friday Rides in Whistler
Aug 9, 2015 at 8:55
The Chromag Friday ride has been a Whistler tradition for the last fifteen years. The premise is simple: meet up at the ride host's house, have breakfast, and go ride.
The crew consists of Chromag staff and good friends. Most ride Chromag hardtails, but full suspension bikes are excepted.
This week's ride location was the No Flow Zone trails in Whistler's Emerald estates. The trails in Emerald are punchy and rocky...classic, old-school Whistler.
Mitch Forbes airs into the Anal Intruder trail.
Steve Mitchell and Ian Ritz smash through a rock garden on No Girlie Man.

Top out on No Girlie man.
Apres ride beer, bro down.
Clockwise from top left: Steve Mitchell, Ian Ritz, Eric Crow, Sean Dinwoodie, Mitch Forbes and Mike Jones.
Not completely satisfied with the day's ride, it was decided that Mitch Forbes, Steve Mitchell, and myself would hike up to the Khyber pass trail just down from Whistler peak, to catch the sunset.
Steve Mitchell dropping into the Khyber pass trail... Whistler's oldest high alpine trail. This trail was here long before the bike park.
What a day!
