2018/08/17-19 Molbdenite with James

A weekend+ trip, officially back to Molybdenite, but we expected the wildfire smoke to mess up the view. Neither of us had ridden either the east or west sides of Harrison lake. Throw in a couple hot springs and it sounded like a fine excuse to go riding…

Still here, still riding / kicking (2018/08/12)

Sorry, haven’t had time to blog the big  Tuktoyaktuk Inuvik ride, may have to break it into chunks.

2018/06/03 – Rob, Dave, Mike (+ Gerry and Darren) up near Oliphant / Mt. Wood

Rob Hayward invited me to “do some technical riding” with a friend of his. I extended the invite to Mike (knowing that James was away in Washington). This was a good day of riding, much of it tight and slow single track.
