Sunday Seymour Shuttle (strong intermediate/advance­d)

Sunday Shuttle of Mount Seymour

Planning on doing a couple laps, or more if people want to.

First lap: corkscrew, pingu, pangor. Maybe another route for the second lap. Dale's trail is fun with some natural, pretty technical sections--a possibility for the second lap. there was a trail day last weekend on pangor, so it should be in great condition.

Due to vehicular logistics, this ride is open to anyone who has a vehicle that can carry 2 or more bikes. if you don't have a vehicle that can carry 2 more more bikes, pedaling up old buck trail is always an option if people want to arrange that here and create a second group. If you rsvp, please state how many bikes and passengers you can accommodate.

strong intermediate/advanced skill level. we'll ride at a moderate pace.

    for those who haven't ridden the north shore, please note that this is quite a bit more advanced than burnaby mountain or a lot of other places -- steeper and more technical, so please keep this in mind. i dont want anyone to get in over their head.

      Glad to see I am not quite loosing all my marbles in my old age. :-D C-Buster is all about incredibly steep tight switchbacks into steeper transitions into more corners. At least that's what I have to pay attention to, so that's what I remember. There's also a scary rotting twisting ladder bridge near the very start as a possible option, I think. Last time I rode it a slat or two broke, lol. For some reason, no one else would follow me.

      the steep technical switchbacks pretty well describes the highlights of it for me. it was pretty tricky.
      there were some a frames and old wooden stunts that looked that they'd seen better days. the twisting ladder bridge at the start was out of commission. the top of the trail had a bunch of muddy sections and the bottom was getting sketchy from being dry and dusty.
      it's on my list of trails to ride again :)

    Another great ride by Bart. Girls, mechanicals and a blizzard kept us to one lap, but a great lap it was. I look forward to the next ride!

    thanks for joining the ride everyone. not as long a ride as hoped due to mechanical trouble and then rain, but fun nonetheless.

    These trails all go down... and require some wood and minro skinny riding. Depending on second lap options there can be some minor pedaling, but a shuttle is all about down. :-)
