Bike on

July.18.2013

They say that distance makes the heart grow fonder.  After nearly ten years absence from mountain biking – I finally rekindled my connection with a set of wheels and the earth beneath.  Here’s a glimpse into my first experience back.

You know when you have an on going conversation with someone that’s spans over a lifetime.  One that you can pick up without a stitch, right where you left off, no matter how long the break is.  That’s the sign of a true friendship and that’s exactly how I felt when I hit the dusty trails for the first time since my accident.…

Spring time(s)

June.19.2013

The past few months have been, well hectic.  I’m pretty psyched about the series of events and opportunities that have culminated throughout the spring.  Here’s a quick rundown of the good times…

My priority was to get as much time on snow, to resolve a few loose ends from last season.  We scored a few days in May at Sunshine Village and were able to test a few different set ups, which proved to be very successful.  We were able to conclude our testing in Mt.…

BESTofBC – part 2

April.19.2013

The second leg of our adventure brought us back to my home mountain Silver Star for the first annual JDS4 (a learn to sit ski camp) hosted by the LIVEitLOVEit foundation.  We had 5 skiers from across western Canada join us for this 3 day adventure in the mountains.  The whole idea behind the camp was to introduce a group of thrill seekers (with spinal cord injuries) to the mountain culture and the sport of skiing.

The days began with a hearty breakfast put on by my lovely wife and her assistants, followed by a little warm up before hitting the slopes.  …
