Lord of The Squirrels: The Glampening

Some friends and I took it upon ourselves to live the life styles of the rich and famous atop one of Whistler most scenic alpine mountain bike rides. In this effort we sought to have an unforgettable experience. From the long pedal up from our respective places of work, meeting, then pedalling upwards for 4.5 hours. To an unreal scene in the golden hour with all of Whistler in its glory in the background, we will never forget it.

Spending the night beside the alpine lake was beautiful albiet full of bugs, which in hindsight probably wasn’t the best idea…

With the group vote in the morning to forego a quick power hour loop to the weather station due the the unforeseen amount of insects, we opted to descend into the inversion that plagued the valley that day. Primed with coffee and some alpine Corn Pops keeping our spirits warm, trudging onwards into the valley below we went riding.

Below is a collection of some of the images from the trip.

Matt

Matt shoots lasers in a dark basement. This dark basement is filled with science such as wind tunnels, olive oil and whizzing computers. When he isn’t swamped with cool sci-fi work he spends time on his bicycle.

Tabias

Tabias, long time friend, talented bicycle rider and all around rad dude came to visit the coast for a few days.

We rode bikes and took some photos. Hailing from Alberta, Tabias hasn’t ridden a bicycle for 5 months due to winter and a wrist injury. Regardless, he was keen to ride some trails in the pouring rain.

Soaring

This past weekend my Grand father turned 85. Having been a pilot in another life, he was delighted that one of his grandchildren is following closely in his footsteps. Unbeknownst to him, he was to take a flight with one of his kin behind the yoke.

The following is a short series of images from said flight .
