    I plan to buy my pass this weekend! Can't wait to get my Faith out for a real ride, just need to get protective gear. Really don't know where to start with that.

    Anyway, has anyone raced in the Tuesday night series and know which trails they use for that? I am mainly wondering if there are gap jumps on the course, not comfortable with those at this point. Will be working on that over the summer but thought I would try to find out what the course is like before heading to try a race.

    The bike show is a good place just to check various models of gear (style/size/price etc). What are you needing? Have you ridden at blue?

    I haven't seen the 2014 Tuesday Night series posted yet. I don't think there is an opening day selected yet. For the Tuesday Night Series, what I recall: the trails alternate from week to week (becoming progressively more technical) Last year the races were held on Groove, Embryo, The Ridge, Showcase etc. They didn't announce the location until race day, but there is time to session the course prior to the race. There are categories for men and women; new riders and experienced riders and for men there is age classes.

    Singlesprocket and I did one of the races...it was my very first race... quite an accomplishment for me And I loved it.

    I need all gear, but not even sure what to get. I have ridden lots of mountain bike but not a lot of pure downhill riding so my gear is all just XC/trail oriented. I have ridden at Blue and in Whistler this past summer, but each of those were only a day each. I did BC Bike race last year and had no issues riding all of the trails in that, so technical skill isn't much of an issue, just large jumps as I have not had much practice.

    I would love to go to the bike show but unfortunatly I cannot go (going away for the weekend to Taboo resort so still a great weekend, haha). The things I know I want are full face helmet and knee pads. After that I am not sure when it come to compression suit type upper body gear, with or without neck brace, neck brace and elbow pads only up top, no shoulder/chest, etc. When it comes to that part I am really lost.

    When I rode at Blue I rented the full compression suit and gear, which was fine, but in Whistler I didn't get the compression suit for up top and was also fine. Mind you I didn't fall so who knows how fine I would have been if I did. Any recommendations on that or where to go in Collingwood (live there) or close to there to look/buy would be great. I only moved here from Alberta in September so I am not familiar with things much yet.

    You shouldn't have a problem riding at blue. I'd recommend a full face, knee/shin pads and elbow/forearm pads. Check out Kamikazi in Collingwood or Badlands Sports at Blue Village as well as the pro shop behind Badlands.
