Over the past 5 years, mountain biking has become my summer staple, to compliment skiing in the winter. I enjoy the cross training benefits and the feeling of flowing down trails with good friends, hooting and hollering. It’s one heck of a good time!
Last summer, cimenatographer, Eric Gonzalez, and I created our first video together, showcasing the round trip aspect of riding door to door on Rossland BC’s killer trail network.
This summer we where inspired to make another project, following the same round-trip feel as the first, but with a bit of a different direction.
The idea took us to one of Canada’s picturesque locations, Revelstoke, BC. The Revelstoke landscape is dominated with mountains that reach high into the alpine, and the town is full of crazy-fit people who call themselves "Alpine Addicts". Needless to say, it was the perfect location for this project, and a familiar area to me as I spend the winters skiing in these same mountains.
A friend offered us his tent trailer for the trip so we loaded the truck and hit the road to Revy. We were packed to the brim with gear.
We arrived in Revy then headed north towards Mica Creek, setup camp along side what was once the flowing Columbia river, now a tranquil lake due to damming of the river. A spectacular location.
Over the next week we spent a solid 10 hours a day working on the project. We started our days driving an hour up a logging road that reached tree-line. From there we rode our bikes into the alpine and began our work.
