Ride Whistler Mountain Bike Park - Saturday May 18th - Intermediate Riders

I suggest we go up to Whistler on opening weekend. I would like to ride all the blue trails and progress onto the easier black trails. I love Ninja Cougar, Karate Monkey, Crank It Up and Dirt Merchant. Looking to expand my skills and have fun with new friends. I have room for 3 others in my car but only 1 extra bike on my rack.

      Hi Gregory,
      I wish I could take your bike and you in my car however my bike rack is full with my bike and Alex's bike. I do have two more spots in my car but no room for additional bikes. Sorry! Hopefully someone else on here has room.

      At the bottom of the stairs next to Blackcomb gondola there is an Irish restaurant. In front of it there's a short stone wall. Let's meet by that wall at 10 am. Sound good?

    I'll watch this site for whatever spot you pick near the bike park. No texting on my phone unfortunately (company phone) but number is 604 .831 .3149. See you tomorrow.

      nice share Aaron, looking forward to riding with you guys on Saturday!

      May 14, 2013

    • Aaron

      Glad to hear you're excited too! I've been dreaming about going back to Whistler for the past 3 years! Only 4 days left. :)

    Me and my bike would love a lift if there's still space, if not I'll look into getting there with Epicrides. I live in South Van but can meet wherever. Am happy to contribute to gas/parking costs.

    May 10, 2013

    • Aaron

      Ooops, shouldn't have pressed enter. Anyways, I still have room in my car. I am planning to only go up for Saturday as well. I live in South Van too so it'll probably work out pretty well. What level rider are you? What trails do you like the most? I'll email you soon and provide my contact information.

      Excellent. I'd rate myself as an intermediate rider - I'm more of a trail rider than downhiller (since moving here I've mainly ridden XC/AM on Burnaby mountain) but I've spent time riding the blues and reds of the French Alps and Sierra nevada in Spain.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
