I feel like I’m living on the coast. From the past two weeks, all I remember is rain. Bubbles babbling along the roadside and cars smashing over puddles. Windshield wipers scraping coarse above my music and the scent of soaking wet sagebrush. The rain is actually ruining everything right now. The number of rad rides resulting in rain cancellations this past while has simply been pathetic. There have been a couple of epic tacky hero dirt days in between, but that’s only 3-4 days a week. And I’m not even just being a whimp, this isn’t the typical Kamloops rain that I thoroughly enjoy. It’s actually so wet that the trails feel like mud puddles sinking into the center of the earth. Pretty over it with the rain right now…


Just about all that has been getting me stoked this week is day dreaming about summer. I guess it was good timing for Sun Peaks and Bike Parks BC to finally release all these photos filled with summer shredding from last season. I’ve got a lot of traveling, shooting, and bike camp coaching coming up over the next little while. Lots of action and adventure to look forward. But what am I really excited for? Hot dusty laps in the bike park and cold beer cans cracking on tailgates. Racing from one town to the next in the middle of warm summer nights and finding the end of the day with a sun setting over the lake. I’m growing increasingly less and less trusting of the weather man, but if he has anything to say about things it looks like summer is right on the horizon. I can’t wait.
