There's no better way to spend Valentine's than riding with someone you love. Syd Schulz and Macky Franklin hit the trails at Nevados de Chillan bike park in Chile for a little Valentine's Day shred. Happy Valentine's Day everyone!

 Nice video. Except it’s never really like that is it. Do the words “I thought you said this was a blue graded trail” sound familiar to anyone?

 Or how about, "if I don't go out for a ride asap, I'm going to murder you and the kids with this set of kitchen knives you think is more important than a new DHF for my Reign".

 Sounds familiar nearly every ride...

 @ceecee: nope, cos my last ride finishes at a cliff. But damn was it good up to that point.

 @ceecee: By the way, this was a JOKE, and in no way an indication of what I'm going to be doing next weekend if I'm driven over the edge.

 @BenPea: So I shouldn't carve up my family because of a comment I read on Pinkbike? Suicide, filicide, and uxoricide jokes are difficult to tell, particularly in relation to tire preference. You've done it nicely. Smiley face emoji.

 @ceecee: I'm just trying to cover my rear so that we can pretend to laugh about it if she reads this.
BTW, uxoricide? Outstanding.

 @BenPea: All credit to Wikipedia's 'list of types of killing.' It brings up the rear of the first section. Peace out

 Dare I ask what a French line is?

 @viccuus: it's hate speech
  • + 5
 @viccuus: word on the street is that French Enduro/DH riders tend to take the straightest line down ... some of them being very questionable with respect to being within the race route ..... some say it is just #UrbanMyth Razz

 @HairyLegs: dude, never go down the race route, unless you want to be President.

 @BenPea: If it rides fast like a French and cuts trails like a French, it must be a French rider. French is a weird word if you say it a few times.... Freeennncchhhh

 French line for a French kiss.

 @fullbug: Nah, Fabien Barel lines. Which is why it was called a French line, not an Ozzie line Wink .

 @viccuus: In the US, at most breakfast buffets, there's a line for regular toast and a line for French toast. The latter is the French line.

 @viccuus: round hurr we calls them Freedom lines.

 @scott-townes: fRRRRRRRRR. Ench. Cheese-eating surrender lines.

 Just read about a new ski resort development planned for opening 2025 in Squamish with this key tidbit:

Amenities that are being planned include a bike park that offers both family and intermediate areas, operating year-round on the lower elevation slopes.

 They're super laid back and would love to ride with anyone. We see them a lot in our home state (NM). It seems like they go to Sedona a bit too, if you ever do the mtb festival.
