Still catching up...










And so even more happened over the summer...

Vancouver was a quick vacation destination in early June. One of the highlights was a quick weekend spent in Whistler whilst we were there. This is a fantastic mountain side resort which in the summer has a really vibrant downhill mountain biking community. Lots of equipment shops will rent out a range of bikes and kit for reasonable amounts for the day and lift passes are likewise affordable.





Extreme downhill and full face helmets aren't for everyone though (including Sonia) and so there are miles and miles of green routes too. These are great trails that take in a couple of large lakes and paths through the pinewood forest. Great for a few hours. We didn't see any bears on our ride though!
