The British Columbia cyclocross season kicked off under sunny summer conditions on Sunday at Aldor Acre Farms in Fort Langley. I’m not going to pretend to know if the turnout was better than previous years, or comment on how typical the racing was, because this was my first cyclocross race ever! I will, however, spoil the end of the story for you – I’m hooked on ‘cross!
I haven’t had pre-race butterflies in over 10 years – ever since I stopped racing downhill mountain bikes – but they were fluttering in full effect for two days leading up to Sunday. I was genuinely nervous of what was to come. While I had been riding my road bike a bunch this summer to get back some fitness and lose some weight, I had a sneaky suspicion that long, slow rides weren’t … Read More »

Giant Bicycles Canada Inc. has partnered with Steed Cycles to take part in the North Shore Mountain Bike Associations (NSMBA) trail stewardship initiative. Given our geographic location and the rich north shore heritage of the “boogieman” trail located on Mount Seymour, the trail stewardship program seemed like a no-brainer to both Steed and Giant.Sunday, August 14th/11 represented the return of the Steed/Giant trail maintenance crew to the wilds of Mount Seymour to complete phase 3 of the boogieman stewardship project. After a quick application of rider repelling tape and trail closure signage at the boogieman trailhead, it was time to take a quick spin down the trail to meet with the rest of the crew for a quick safety meeting + build plan for the day.
Steed Cycles has been a part of the North Shore cycling community for over 14 years, and mountain biking has always been a big part of who we are. Of course Kim’s presence in early bike videos such as the North Shore Extreme (NSX) series, and Kranked movies showcased Kim’s riding and the North Shore Trails themselves. Boogieman is a North Shore classic trail that has been around for about 13 years. We’re happy to get the opportunity to get Boogieman back into great shape, and add a couple modernizations.
We’re able to get the opportunity to work on Boogieman through the NSMBA TAP (Trail Adoption Program), and with the partnership of Giant Bicycle.
This is how our first trail day went down:
