Burnaby Mountain - Nicoles plus lower trails - Begintermediate

I haven't ridden in almost four weeks! - the longest I've gone since I started last May! I'm heading back to Burnaby Mountain. I'll start with Dead Moped, upper North Road and Lower Snake and then I'll head up to the top and descend Naheeno, Mel's and Nicoles. As I haven't ridden in a month, I may have to stop during the climbs to gasp for air and/or vomit (which I promise to do as discreetly as possible). I'm excited! I'm going to ride Saturday and ski Sunday, the makings of a perfect weekend!

    March 15, 2014

    • Fiona

      I've already got a passenger. Sorry! Send Mark a message. He's also driving from downtown.

    • Mark R.

      Hey Nicolas. I have room. What your address and number? Call my cell[masked]

    If it is down pouring don't expect me. Let's ask the weather gods for decent weather

    March 14, 2014

    • Fiona

      It's raining, but not pouring. :) If you decide not to ride, please update your RSVP so that we know not to expect you. Yay mud!

    Haven't been out since getting my ass whooped on Felix's Squamish ride!

      And THAT'S why my bike sleeps in the living room! What a bummer!! I managed to mess up my shoulder somehow too... hockey. :( We'll see how it goes tomorrow but I'm optimistic.

      Good luck on your healing Gary. My should is still healing. Rest and patience. See you out there soon. Sorry to hear about your bike :(((

      March 14, 2014

  • Mark R.

    I'm long overdue for a rip. I have a room for one more if anyone needs a ride from downtown/westend.

    March 14, 2014

  • Fiona

    Would you like a lift from downtown, Colin?

    March 11, 2014

    • Colin G.

      Dallas, you're a genius. I've mistakenly been using the GoPro to film bike rides... Clearly I should be using it to film transit rides.

      March 14, 2014

    • Colin G.

      Fiona, yes please, I'll take that lift.

      March 14, 2014

  • Oriana

    If it doesn't rain and I have energy from my crazy week I would love to join. :)))
