    Vancouver

    Hi, I'm 16 yo and I'm going to "live" in Vancouver for 6 months.... I think I'm arriving in August. I wanted to know if there are any Freeride - Downhill trails around...How good are the conditions for Freeriding there at this time... I think I'm going to stay at North Vancouver, I'm not taking my bike with me, but I expect to buy one there... something around 1500 CAD.... I'm also looking foward to know some bikers there so them can show me the places....

    You've got to be kidding...North Vancouver is the Freeride capital of the world. That's where it all began...Fromme,Seymour,Cypress and 1 and 1/2 hours from Whistler.

    You won't get a decent dually for $1500.00 Cdn. Buy used or, send me an e-mail and I'll hook you up on a new Specialized Big Hit when you get here.
