After a day off the return to the valley was unreal. The Rocky Mountain was the bike of choice and from right out of the gate it lurched ahead like a maniac with each pedal stroke. The ride started at Henrietta Louise Park on Bird House trail where I stayed on the South side all the way to the Science Park.
Cadyshack trail was ridden and I was a bit nervous before hitting it up. My memories all fall back to Winter where I had some rather rough experiences. I would like to say I wasn't all that apprehensive about riding Caddyshack although I sat at the trail head for twenty minutes smoking butts as urine dribbled down my leg. Some dog walkers gave me a weird look as they passed by but I didn't care.
This trail will fuck your shit up.
Or so I thought.
It would seem the difference between a fat bike in the Winter and a nice nimble Summer bike in nice Spring trail conditions is quite vast to say the least. The bike handled the trail like a champ and before I knew it I was entering Andre's trail unscathed with a shit eating grin.
Cambodia is still awesome despite the shitty ladder crossings, the trail system there seems to be getting busier every year as I passed by a total of fifteen riders on my route in and route out. The Science park was still the Science Park and I didn't hang around too long.
The ride ended on the North side of the river after crossing the Capilano bridge through Kinniard and Dawson.
