My most successful adventures - be they large or small - have been a direct result of strong #partners. Today was no exception with this guy, @c_nowlan providing both the #tools and a new trick (to this guy) for accessing loose collet bolts in the field. Now the other guy in our party, however ... @geoff.geoffbrown - absolute liability... . . . . . #mtb #goodpartners #trailside #mtbtrails #fighttrail #ridehfx #RideEast

No shortage of trees down in this last windy spell. Luckily I keep a small pruning saw in my pack - all that was required for this little extraction. . . . . . #whopper #flipside #deadfall #stormfall #mtb #mtbtrails #mountainbike #ridehfx #RideEast

A solo ride through the elements last evening at #evilbirch. This trail is so good with such a mix of #features, #rockgardens and other #tech thrown into a bite-sized package. I always forget how good it is until I get in there! . . . . . . #bringyourskills #mtb #mtbtrails #endlessgranite #mountainbike #ridelife #lifebehindbars #ridehfx #RideEast

The only thing better than showing an ‘outta towner’ #fighttrail, is showing an outta towner with the skills to make short work of the place. Such was the case with this guy this morning. With skills honed on his hometown trails in Sooke, BC, Matt floated everything delivered this morning - including a quick detour down #gordsgold. ‘Looking forward to getting out again soon! . . . . . . #welcome #justvisiting #skillsformiles #mtbtrails #ridelife #granitebikepark #flagshiptrails #ridehfx #RideEast

Always a pleasure to get out with this guy! With fitness and skills for miles, @eriordon made it all look smooth and easy at Fight Trail this morning. . . . . . . #steeze #mtb #fighttrail #outsideisfree #mtbtrails #mtbskills #ridehfx #ridelife #RideEast

With a golden sunset in the west and a near full moon rising in the east, we had the perfect evening to cap off our 5 weeks of riding. Everyone’s riding has noticeably improved and we’re looking forward to taking it to the next level in the spring! Great job everybody! See you when the snow melts. . . . . . #gromsquad #startemyoung #grom #kidsskills #mtbskills #mtb #mountainbike #mtbinstruction #lifebehindbars #itsbetterwithaguide #ridelife #ridehfx #RideEast

It won’t be long before these colours are gone for the season. The forecast Is looking like there’s room to piece together a solid weekend of activity. Get out there and take it in while you can. . . . . . . #getafterit #fallcolours #nsleafwatch #mcintoshrun #fighttrail #lousbasement #mtb #lifebehindbars #mtbtrails #ridelife #itsbetteroutside #outsideisfree #ridehfx #RideEast

Its very impressive to see how well these young riders have developed their skills over the past few weeks. They’ve been tackling progressively more challenging terrain - and with every hurdle has come improvement. Keep it up guys! One more ride to go. . . . . #gromsquad #startemyoung #mtb #mtbkids #mtbskills #mountainbike #ridehfx #RideEast

Glenbourne pump track is in great shape with some newly sculpted dirt down. If you haven’t been, it’s a great place to spend some time with kids working on their skills. Here, @petey_kolodziej shows the young ones how it’s done with some thigh-burning hot laps around the track. . . . . . #hotlaps #pumptrack #dirtjump #mtb #glenbourne #sayitwithberms #mtbtrack #mtbskills @shorelinedirtworks

Great day of learning new mtb teaching techniques and skills at this weekend’s PMBI instructor course at Kelso Conservation Area with @sir.brenton. . . . . . #mtb #kelso #kelsoconservation #pmbi #pmbia #mtbskills #mtbinstructor

At 12 years old, this guy is the youngest in this fall’s Ride East Grom Squad - but you’d never know it. Cole is out there givin’ his all with kids several years his senior. Way to go Cole! It’s great to be out there riding with such an enthusiastic next generation of riders and watching them build their skills and confidence. ‘Looking forward to making it happen again next week! . . . . #gromsquad #startemyoung #kidsnbikes #itsbetteroutside #keepkidsactive #mtbskills #itsbetterwithaguide #mtb #ridelife #ridehfx #RideEast

Not only are these new socks from @thesneakysocks super comfy, they’re pretty flashy, too. No wonder @andrewlespy gets ‘em on his feet for big events. If you’d like to have a pair of your own and support Andrew and the Forward Racing program, visit @fwdracingmtb . Now... I wonder if they’ll make me any faster...? . . . . #supportlocal #forwardracing #sneakysocks #cyclingfashion #cyclingstyle #matchwitheverything #mountainbike #mtb

We took it right to sundown at this week’s kid’s MTB skills clinic. By the end, the kids were cooked - but showing noticeable improvements in their riding. Great work guys! ‘Looking forward to next week and bringing those skills to the next level! . . . . . #gromsquad #kidsnbikes #startemyoung #mtbskills #mtbcourse #mtb #mtbguide #mtbinstruction #ecmtb #ridehfx #RideEast

Why ride around when you can just ride over? @geoff.geoffbrown and @cpolegatto make short work of big spines in Fight Trail this morning. Conditions are good, the air is cool and thanks to some recent efforts, the lake crossing is dry! No better time to get out and get the goods! . . . . #fighttrail #lakeloop #granitebikepark #lifebehindbars #ridelife #mtb #mtbtrails #ridehfx #RideEast
