Lower Burke - Begintermediate

We will stay on the lower trails... We'll likely ride Braap or Dawg then loop back to do Ray Ray`s Fun Factory and then Hustler. 



Riding level: Begintermediate*


These trails are a good progression from Burnaby Mountain. 
If you have questions - send me a message or post a comment.

* Begintermediates

You’ve been mountain biking for at least one year or have decent general riding skills and good fitness.

You're capable of controlling bike speed and direction on moderate (green and blue) single-track.

You can handle terrain that is slightly technical, with smaller rocks,  roots,  and some drops. You may get off your bike and walk when the terrain gets technical.

You can climb on single-track as long as it is not too technical.

    Dear all - I have been watching all your comments and think you maybe should all stay home, put your feet up and have a beer - or a cup of tea! Maybe Mother Nature is giving you a day off! Be safe and lots of good wishes to all those who are having a tough day! Hope it all works out.
