I’m following a 16-year old ripper off a tabletop on When Pigs Fly. A grandmother is on my tail and an 8-year old surprisingly close behind. In our group of 15 riders exploring Burns Lake’s 100 kilometre trail network, there’s everyone from middle-aged teachers to bike bums, expert to intermediates, in jogging pants and on triple crown downhill rigs. I’ve never ridden with a more diverse crew, especially not on assignment.
Growing up in a small town in the Kootenays (Nakusp BC), Graeme was always on a bike. It was a major part of his childhood and remains a key component in his life as an adult. He has lived in BC all his life and therefore feels he have been blessed to ride all of the best zones in the province. With that said, Prince George (Graeme’s hometown) is quickly becoming one of the leading mountain bike scenes in the province. The riding community in Prince George is top notch and the local trail building team has quickly become one of the best in the province and this week Graeme shares it with us with his photography.
