There are few places above the 49th parallel where riding is possible all 12 months of the year. For most riders in Canada the season comes to a close in October or November. Confining most of us to the indoors until the ice & snow releases its grip on our local trails. Unlike most of Canada, Vancouver and Vancouver island are blessed with a temperate climate making it possible to stay on two wheels all year round.

For those of us lucky enough to live here it's safe to say we've probably taken this for granted. I took a short trip to meet up with Luke Fulton and friends on the island to take advantage of being able to ride unfrozen dirt this time of year.

 Honestly didn't think I would like a slide show about DJ, but when I watched it I was surprised to find it captivating. The best moments frozen on the screen. Awesome work!

 For all the effort of the slide show, photos, riding, editing, etc. This could have just as easily been a video. Personally I would have preferred a video, but I guess as far as slide shows go. This is damn well made.
