Believe it or not, it’s been about 4 years since I’ve been up to Whistler for my first time and until this week, I had never been to Lost Lake. Appalling, I know! Due to the time of year, it was quiet and breathtaking. I was there because Sylvie gave me another mountain biking lesson and it was awesome. I started off cold and warmed up pretty fast and we rode the Lost Lake Trails.
We rode the Lost Lake Loop to Donkey Puncher to Disco Boy (or something like that) and The Torture Never Stops followed by a fun downhill adventure via Tin Pants. Some was single track. Some was crushed gravel. Some was up hill and some was down. It was hard and sweaty and fun. There was green and even some blue trails.
Here are some lessons/thoughts:
1. Who gives these trails their crazy names?
2. What goes up, must come down.
3. Down is REALLY fun.
4. Stand up over dips, roots, bumps and rocks.
5. Look far ahead.
If you want to learn to ride, Sylvie is your gal and I’m stoked about riding more trails. YEHAW! SO FUN!
