As with most mountain bikers living in Vancouver, we here at MTBTrails are happy to welcome the arrival of spring. Last June, when we released Locals’ Guide to North Shore Rides, we wanted to drag Cam McRae from NSMB.com out on one of our recommended rides. Not that he would be shown something new; quite the contrary. We wanted to showcase to him a nice tight route that would satisfy a new visitor to the Shore, the main focus of the book.
Ryan has now developed apps for such areas as Squamish, Whistler and Pemberton – check them out at trailmapps.com. We hope to launch the North Shore app as soon as next month; it will be available on iTunes and on the trailmapps site.
Whilst compiling the Locals’ Guide, MTBTrails had a chance to partner with many great North Vancouver businesses. It seems here that accommodation a short ride from the trails is hard to find. But, the Lynn Valley Bed and Breakfast is just the place. It’s located less than a 5 minute pedal to the Fromme trails. So Sharon and I came up with a great give-away package. It was decided that we would pick a winner from the first 100 people to buy Locals’ Guide from our website. We are happy to announce that Russ Campbell, from Victoria BC, has won two nights for two people at Lynn Valley B&B. Congratulations Russ, I hope you have a couple great days riding the Shore!
