YES!!

I love it when plans work out. Yesterday we rode and hoped to ride again today, and we did!

I took the SkyTrain in to town for 10:30, meeting Terry at the 'Main Street/Science World' stop. We then headed up to Seymour, and met Alex, Adam & Sam there. Terry works with Adam, and Adam invited Sam.

We loaded the truck up, and rode 'CBC' to 'Pingu' to 'Team Pangor'. Pretty much the usual warm up run.

As you may know, poor Alex broke his collarbone earlier in the season, and this was one of his first times back on the bike, so he was not his usual speedy self.


A rare still photo of Alex riding; normally he's too fast, and all you get is blur!


About 3/4 of the way down Adam got a call from his friend Matt (somehow heard the name Michelle?), so Adam invited him to join us for our next lap.

Once we got to the bottom, Alex took Terry back up to get the truck, I grabbed a sandwich, and then before I knew it we were back at the top again!!

'CBC' is the only way I know how to get in to the trails from the top lot that we park at, so it was that trail in again. This time though, before hitting the road, we snuck on to 'TNT'. A very old school trail, a bit more pedally than anything I've ridden on Seymour before, and super fun!

'TNT' was our way to get over to 'Severed Dick'. Don't get mad at me for the trail name, I didn't name it, we just rode it. It was one FUN trail, and well worth the trek across to it's head. Lots of sweet drops and jump on it, mixed with a bit of great steeps and roots. Check out the video of some of the riding from today below!
