The west coast of British Columbia has put the hurt on mountain biking this winter with record snowfalls and unridable trails. Finally, spring has hit Squamish and the trails have been given a facelift by the local trail builders. Watch as Dexter Robson throws down a top time on one of the classic trails, "Credit Line".

 Great Video! Credit Line is a Jim Harvey classic, such a great line. Jim built so many great trails in town. The trail crew gave it a top to bottom refresh this spring. Don't forget to pick up your yearly memberships to support the trails!

 I remember walking this with Jim before he built it (12 years ago). At some point just after that his wife bought him a Nomad. About the most bling bike around at that point. He claimed she bought it on credit. Credit Line.

Jim Harvey... what a guy!

 Damn that was a great edit! Great soundtrack. Ripping riding, excellent mix of mechanical bike music with the music track. Just a symphony of visual and auditory stimulus! Great morning coffee viewing. You guys in Canada really have got it all. You folks in BC need a world class luthier, vintage guitar restoration specialist? Probably not.

 Are those jumps actually on Credit Line now? Or is that another trail somewhere near there?
  • + 6
 I just rode Credit Line two weeks ago... And those gap jumps definitely are not on it! They're at the end of Grin and Holler I believe.

 @HpSauce: haha didn't think so. I've ridden credit many times and I was having trouble thinking of where there's enough room for those big jumps and long landing.

 @gbeaks33: I feel like it was also missing a few mid trail climbs as well
  • + 3
 @CrazyHorse4: yeah really. The hardest part of credit line are those tough punchy climbs. If you can clean those, that's more impressive than shredding the downhill part.
  • + 1
 @gbeaks33: and @CrazyHorse4 - totally agreed. That was Jim's vision; to make this an "all-mountain" trail. Of course he routed this before that phrase existed
  • + 2
 @leelau: Yes, the climbs are part of the trail, but have been widened and are quite accessible now.

 @faultlinetv: was just re-reading my comment and hope it wasn't misconstrued as criticism. Was just thinking through the times I've beaten my head against the Credit Line climbs. Definitely appreciated the video and the intent to show the fast sections of the trail - which was accomplished very well.

 Always good to see the 'normal' trails in videos. The end of CL has got beefed up since I last rode it though Smile

 That doesnt look like Jack's trail that they end up on at the finish. Has the end of Credit Line been re-routed? I havent ridden it in awhile.

 Hi! Sorry the end of the video is Grin 'N Holler
