    Hope Turner Shore riders?

    Had my first encounter with the trails on Mt Seymour Thursday. Unbelievable is the only word I can come up with to describe them!

    Any Turner riders rode Pingu, Team Pangor and Slash cleanly? The start was so steep I slid down on my behind! Had to make do with a hired Kona Stinky, but I can't blame the bike for my inept display. Tell me it gets easier. One guy ahead of me rolled the big boulder on Team Pangor

    All I can say is; respect to all you true Shore riders, I cannot conceive of a time when I could master those trails.

    Sure was fun trying, though.

    Yours, Spanked of Scotland

    Ow!

    Glad I didn't have any video of my attempts, would have looked remarkably similar. Full face, a useful invention.

    Frank, is fine, a few cut's, his helmet (Giro) do not fair to well, it split in three places and was crushed to half thickness, replaced under there discount crash replacement policy.
    There where two doctors with us at the time so he was in good hands
    He started cursing almost straight away so it was a fair bet he was ok, ish
    Not a good weekend for this lot they split two helmets and another fractured his wrist

    The shore is absolutely my favorite place to ride! Mt. Seymour is fun- did you ride CBC? I really like Mt. Fromme, you have to climb for the descents which gives it a bit more of an XC vibe. The pic in my profile is from fromme. I haven't checked out cypress but it's on my list. I've got a few videos (link below) but they aren't the best- the shore's lighting conditions make it tricky.

    Have you checked out www.gutsploder.com ?

    Spent some time on the shore last summer. I second FM's recommendation of hitting CBC and then connecting to Ned's. That was a lot of fun with enough challenge to make it fun for just about anyone. Fromme is burly. We did "upper oil can" to "ladies only" and I walked a bit.

    Oly,

    I'll likely be up there on Saturday with a crew as well (FM's outta town). Keep an eye out for me on a white Gran Mal with a white Travis.

    The route you mentioned (CBC to Ned's Atomic Dustbin) is awesome, but it drops you out at the Superstore which works fine if you're doing the huckwagon. If you're dropping cars at Old Buck, a better route is CBC, Corkscrew, Salvation (left off of Corkscrew about 2/3 the way down), Pingu, Team Pangor (or Boogieman on the 2nd run) to Empress.

    Also, another killer option about 1/2 way down Ned's is Dirty Diapers, but you need to have someone show you where the turnoff to the entrance is (easy to miss and it was a hike-a-bike in).

    Cheers,
    EBX

    CBC to Ned's

    I was riding solo, with no-one in the car park to offer a shuttle, otherwise CBC to Ned's was definitely the main aim. As it was I had to ride up Old Buck to the Powerlines and then down Pingu, Team Pangor and Slash. Hard work on a Stinky. Maybe a Highline would have helped!
    Can't wait to return, already visualising how I could have done better. That drop in to Pingu just seemed so steep. Tell me it get's easier!

    Unbelievable place to hone your skills, my pilgrimage really showed why North Shore riders consistently outperform mere mortals. Respect!

    Hey, my buddy did the Ripper on a 4 man team and had a total blast. He said the climb (ahem....hike-a-bike) up Dales back up to Corkscrew had him in pain on his Bullit! I was supposed to join him, but had a different debaucherous ride event to attend.

    Dirty Diapers. I rode it last June with someone I'm certain you know (name withheld to protect the mildly innocent) and was told that was the name. I'm sure it's not a normally traveled trail........

    Dirty Diapers is a legit trail, just not one we'd like to get too popular... it probably won't get too popular though since people don't like to ride the access trail to get to it.

    We're thinking of a ripper variation for next year - dirty diapers then up neds

    That and its more old school gnar which again, people now adays don't like as much as the more buffed out trails.

    on that note, I've trying to get my mojo back on Espresso which kicked my ass, then Lee and I rode grannies which was great, today I rode Lower Oilcan - we had a trail day on it a couple of weeks ago and it flows pretty nicely now! Then we did Boundary and I think I'm getting my mojo back!

    All these on the Turner. I've been riding the Ti HT more over the winter and getting back on the Turner took a bit of time to get used the squishy!

    You mean people even climb these technical trails. On a Bullit! I had a hard time on Old Buck going up. ( Blame the Stinky)

    you guys came to our home turf and didn't post ahead of time? At the very least I can show you some gorgeous cartwheels - brodiegrrl is a tad smoother then me.

    Ebx - we're skiing/biking Whistler. The memorial weekend we might be climbing Baker but we'll be back on Sunday so let us know if you're around

    Lee,

    I'll be up there on Saturday with a crew shuttling Seymour so it doesn't sound like we'll connect. I'm bringing eio (a Turner homer) with me for his virgin shore runs. I'll be sure to get some pics of him on some of Jeremy's or Synchro's creations!! Should be beautiful up there..... If you end up sticking around, join us for a run....but expect lots of sessioning - especially on Boogie Man and Salvation.

    On that note, we'll be in Whistler for our Mem. day weekend (end of May) and will likely get a day on the slopes and a day in the park and maybe a day on the West side. Interested in a Flank trail / Cheap Thrills / RRTI type of day?

    BTW, I heard the ripper course was awesome. My buddy was lamenting it to me on the phone yesterday.....mainly the climb up Dales. He he he

    Cheers,
    EBX

    EB-

    Our plans just changed to sunday to include Skookum (shore virgin) who had to work saturday. We will probably do 2 runs down via Huckwagon depending on the crew. We will have a few new people so Im not sure about Boogieman. I think the Pangor loop is possible.

    I plan to be at Whistler on the 28th(sunday). Were day tripping from Olympia... Maybe we will see ya... Be on the lookout for a silver highline with DH 40.

    Boogeyman is looking awesome.

    CBC is in great shape with all the work.

    Do the usual laps but make sure you hit up the lower part of Boogeyman with low speed - if its dry as it was the past few days sand builds up and coats the rock so you go into Piledriver with much too much speed.

    Mem Day weekend - Sat - Climb and ski Baker; Sunday = ride in Vancouver. I might take Monday off and ride with anyone who comes up here

    The course for the Ripper wasnt bad was it? I wanted it longer but the other organizers overruled me saying that they didnt want it to be a deathmarch. I did 3 other rides after that for a total of 4. Whew i was tired - then next day we went to the sunshine coast and rode 40k.

    Sounds good Oly. Yeah, Boogie Man is better left for the next time up or folks are in mid-season form. Pangor is always fun and has it's fair share of challenges too. It's funny how 2 runs doesn't sound like much until the fatigue factor comes into play! Hey, if folks are feeling spunky after Pangor, hit Empress (which is very short) and that will give Skooks a good idea what Boogie Man is all about......especially the last rock face. Yikes!

    Mem. day weekend, I'll be up there for 3 days.....got the pass, so we got to get our money's worth. If you have a radio, we can coordinate a hook up for some runs before then. We'll be in touch!

    Cheers,
    EB

    Ooof! Boogieman is BURLY! That whole rock slab section that spits you into the trees is nuts. Everytime I've ridden that trail, that particular section gets walked. It's in my head.
