BC Bike Race 2018: Day 4 - Earls Cove to Sechelt
I did the BCBR last year...I decided to go all out for that specific day vs the other days where I pushed but in a more manageable way. It was violent. 4h11m with a 153 bpm avg. HR, 295tss (for anybody using TrainingPeaks). Legs were shattered by the end of the day after already 3 days in the bag. It was awesome. :) BCBR was one of the most amazing weeks of my life. Highly recommend it.

The Mountain Bike Tourist: Quebec Road Trip Part Four - Vallée Bras-du-Nord
No it's still 10km; the 10km uphill is a gravel (for cars/pick-ups) road. Still, a fantastic way to shuttle up without too much hurt. Some steep parts, but most of it is quite smooth. Th Nielson is still epic.

Economic Impacts of Mountain Biking Tourism - 2016 Update
Debbie Downer showed up...I can't believe how much hate there is on this website with people making money and SPENDING IT buying high end bikes, staying at hotels when they travel for vacations, paying for 5-7 day events, with a LOT of that money trickling down to small communities hosting the events (who need it, btw), to trail builders who get amazing single tracks built for local people to enjoy, or helping fund R&D at bike/component companies that will eventually make it to bikes that "normal" people can afford to buy. What's so wrong with all of that? Sometimes I feel like it's a socialist board. You can't afford it? You have 2 options: work hard to afford it or be happy for the people who can, buy the gear you can't afford and just move the f*ck on from your hateful stance on people who can. I love cars, I drive a VW Golf, and I don't hate guys buying Audis, Lambos, etc. Grow up. I'm going to do BC Bike Race next year, and you know what, on that given week, I guarantee you I'll have a better time than you. :) On a more positive note, thanks for the article, extremely interesting.

Kona Carbon Hei Hei DL - First Look
That bike, and the Cannondale Habit SE, seem to be THE perfect bikes one really needs; I'm happy to see the pendulum swing back in favor of more "normal" bikes that are faster and better adapted to the real trails people ride in. I'm sorry, but most of the time (90%+ of the time) I simply don't need 150-160mm of travel; 120-130mm will be plenty, and I'll take the weight savings and more efficient geometry with fun factor included.
