Holy crow, has it been raining lately .
This weekend seen me riding with Wade Simmons showing him the goodness of Ledgeview.
Photoguy extrodinaire Magnus ,just kept shaking my hand . He was so enthused about the area.
The cliffs of Xcellerator to Ambidextrous. The fog kept rolling in and what I would of thought of as why not wait another day? Magnus loved the surrealness . A definitive guide to Ledgeview /sumas and the lower mainland is being made.
Got lucky and actually rode three days this week after doing a lot of trail work.
From the DuckFarm loop of Yarrow to starting a redo on the SquidLine,it's fall here.
I have been riding Bear Xc and really enjoying those old fav's like Bigguns and the new Cranks/
Bomba and Wasp/backdoor.
Red side finally found Mastadon and was pleasantly surprised by the length.
Tecky to hell ,as is lots of Red Xc trails,never mind the craZy DH of tech hell Arduum comes to mind.
Going back in this week to Chadsey lake trail with my saw and continue clearing the perennial blowdown and brushing back the growth.
I love this trail been riding it for over twenty years, like Elk/Thurston few crazy bikers here.
Most likely cause few know of these steep natural trails are actually fun ,if you can accept a little exposure.
Anyway Indoor 4x race nov 20th then 27. and I am announcing BMX racing every sat at 7pm.

Top it all off.
DJumps Abbotsford getting so close .
Earthrampbikeparks will be building a progressive park N.E.of the BMX track.
Money is starting to come in.
City has faith(they have kicked in some extra cash faith really)
Insurance/ site/ plan / date summer 2012 is the goal to get it done.
I have never been more sure we are getting into the end game .
Besides it's only been five years of planning..... who cares at the end of the day it's getting done.
The dj park will be a thing of beauty.
thanks to Kyle and Will and LUke,they have walked the walk.
hero's in my eyes.
