Big Boys Ride-Labour Day Long Weekend 2015

We had been trying to find a route and bumped into a group of guys heading that way, so we tagged along….

They were at the edge of the plateau, having a look at the hill climb to come…

I followed in earnest, but my little wheels spun in the loose gravel…

I finally made it up and though it sure wasn’t pretty the views made up for it.

As I rested, getting my nerve up for the next bit, I snapped a few shots…

Another awesome view point…then into some mucky, steep single track.

By this point I was so tired I could barely pull in the clutch. Tyler from Squamish traded his Beta trials bike with me for a bit, and took my bike when I got stuck…which where a few times! Thanks a bunch Tyler!

We all made it up and out safe and sound…well except for a couple of bikes, with a pierced rad, broken spoke and flat tire

A great bunch of guys, super riders as we heard they started their ride by going UP 20 min. trail!

When a few jeeps drove by, the herd moved off the road, “mooing” as they did..hilarious!
