Video: 3 Wheel MTB-er Cole Bernier Attempts Massive Slab
Pretty sure there will be legal reasons for those bollards being there. If that bridge failed people would die. I'm down for the bridge being replaced if it means safe access for all but given it's location I doubt that will be a cheap undertaking. The trail crew is always woefully small so most maintenance is handled by volunteers. OneUp couldn't even fill a 25 person dig day recently to open up Airplane Mode, yet people line up to ride it..... People can (or with possible minor amendments to a couple of trail sections) ride from Pia / Condor, along Glens or the other connectors to Jacks and then 50 Shades / Mikes Loop, or Alice Lake. If the TFH woodwork was made wider, people would whine that it was dumbed down. Whatever anyone does, someone else will moan.

I don't have a horse in this race but wouldn't it make more sense on a number of levels for adaptive bikers to meet at Alice Lake? Easy parking. A couple of options to climb, and easy access to the Mikis extension and Cardrona. Could ride Rupert and head North before heading back to Alice Lake. I have my doubts that anyone would ride Marc My Word or Treasure Trail on an adaptive bike!! So the bollards become a non-issue IIRC. No idea why Remy took Cole along the Tracks From Hell woodwork :D If nothing else, they could have gone around and on to Don't Tell Donny.

Video: Why Beginner and Advanced Riders Love Blue Trails (and Intermediate Riders Don't)
Ironically I think the blue flow trails around here (Squamish) are pretty well the same as many trails in the likes of the UK, and probably loads of other places too. Just loads of berms and 'whoopy bumpy things'. I can't remember any trails like that when I first rode here in 2007, but as that style of riding became more popular elsewhere, the same happened here.

Review: 2023 Bold Unplugged - Tracloc, Hidden Shock, & Two Smoking Barrels
If the customer was told at point of sale that their new pride and joy is going to cost 4 times more than it could to fix, then it's a win / win. I doubt that happens very often though! Most sales people just want the sale.

Review: Akta's Trail Apparel & Protection Line
I don't think clothing designers can win this one because humans are morons. One year it's cool to have your pants dragging along the ground, sucking up liters of puddle water. The next year (i.e. seemingly now), the 'cool' kids want to wear pants that barely reach half way down their skinny hipster calves. On the plus side, at least white clothing isn't trendy in mountain biking circles, as that would be the dumbest move ever. Oh...hang on..... :D

Video: Pump for Peace Races the Cape Epic & Builds a Pump Track in Uganda
If you are in Squamish, I think think of at least 6 pump tracks, ranging from an asphalt one to semi-abandoned ones that just need people to put some work into them.

MicroShift Announces Cage Update for Advent X Derailleur
Yes I scrolled down to comment on this. A press release that appeared to be written by normal functioning human being, which makes a pleasant change!

Cariboo Mountain Bike Consortium Asks Riders to Respect Closure of Legendary Freeride Spot Farwell Canyon
A four hour drive from Kamloops to Farwell to do a couple of 20 second 'laps' is a bit weird. Props to the local First Nations for making a point on who's land it is though. Way too many commercial enterprises profiting off it. I'm sure if it was a few local dudes / dudettes largely respecting the land and dropping in a few times and clearing up after themselves it probably wouldn't have been a big deal. But it got plastered all over the internet with predictable results. "Don't Doom The Spot".

First Look: Forge+Bond's New Thermoplastic Wheels
I wonder if anyone will ever investigate to see if the material aluminum would work well for rims? It's cheap, light, easily recycled and I can guess that rim flat spots could be removed with Knipex pliers or a vice with soft jaws. I'm a bit lost for what I'd call such a rim but for some reason 'DT Swiss EX511' springs to mind. The industry wants everything in boring black but I'd want them polished or anodized. I can only dream....
