First Canada Ride '08

March 2, 2008

I moved here to ride, and setup Spectrum Techwear here because the action is, well, here. With the soaring prices of gas, my motivation level has increasingly declined (if that's actually possible) for driving somewhere to ride. Eventually, it had to happen. Today we made the first trip to Canada of '08.

Ol' Brule over at Pinkbike recommended Vedder due to great conditions the previous weekend, so I was stoked to try it out.

The trails were greasy at the beginning of the day.

Seth breaking in some new construction on Dilemma. Holy Crap is that nice craftsmanship. Even smells fresh!

If there's one thing that really gets me stoked besides riding new lines myself, it's watching other people ride new lines. Malinda really stepped it up despite the greasy conditions. Way to giv'er!

Overall, a great first Canada ride for 2008!
