    bye!!

    Hey guys, long time no post. Anyways, Just wanted to say goodbye?? I guess not really cuz I can always log on but I meant, bye from the Ontario mountain bike community! I decided to transfer out west with my company to B.C.!! I'm going to the Burnaby office but I think I've decided to live in Maple Ridge. Looking forward to new and exciting riding out there! I'll have to buy a downhill bike now....Hope to come back and do some races in Ontario in the summer, though, when I come to visit. So for all those who I've met over the year, byeee!!!
    Take care!!

    Maple Ridge to Burnaby

    that's gonna be a fun commute...
    Driving in and around Vancouver during rush hour is a nightmare.

    Maple Ridge is a friendly quiet community.
    Cross the bridges and it's culture shock.

    At least, that's what I remember from 15 years ago.

    Have fun in the mountains.

    cheers

    Hasn't changed much in 15 years except that the rush hour traffic jams on the #1 don't end until after 9:30-10:00AM in the morning for the west bound traffic and start as early as 2:30-3:00PM in the afternoon for traffic headed east. By 3PM, east bound traffic will be backed up to the Cassiar tunnel at Hastings. That's why I like living and working in the North Vancouver. A day without bridges is a good day.

    There's a fair bit of riding around Burnaby Mountain (SFU), Coquitlam and Port Coquitlam (Eagle Ridge, Burke Mountain, Buntzen Lake). Although they are developing a lot of Burke Mountain and Eagle Ridge so bits of trail are going away here and there.

    Please don't come back to race in Ontario, after living near real mountains you will make the rest of us feel very inferior.
    Good luck out west!
