    See link below. I also want to give a shout-out to L. Ron Hoover, a frequent contributor to this forum, for his thoughtful words in the "Comments" section following the article.

    Sweet! I'm flying out on the 29th of July, going to do some hiking and biking. It will be great to try these trails out. Looks like a lot of fun for sure.

    tyh83, one of the guys in the video, Chris Jarrett, owns the shop in downtown St.John's. I have no idea if he rents. His store is:

    Freeride Mtn Sports
    153 Water.st
    St. John's NL
    A1A 1N1
    Ph.709 722 RIDE (7433)
    email freeridems@gmail.com
    Facebook FRMS
    web Freeride Mountain Sports | Home

    Tell him you were a big Schizoid fan "back in the day" and you may get a discount...

    Speaking of Subnet...

    Thanks, I don't normally post comments on CBC but there some pretty silly things being said and I felt I should defend the MTBers.

    Don't think there's anywhere to rent a good bike, though Chris at Freeride might be able to help you out.

    Also anyone who's coming to St. John's can feel free to PM me and perhaps we can go for a ride while you're here.
