Adam, our friend Sean and I went out for a ride on Burnaby Mountain in Burnaby, BC yesterday morning. We start at the North Road parking lot where we leave the cars and proceed to ride through the lower trails (cross-country style) and then up the mountain to the top to Simon Fraser University. The plan was to ride down Nicole’s trail, and that is precisely what we did, after the long climb. It being only our second ride in the past three months, it was a slow climb with a few breaks and walked sections.
I brought the camera and put the new flash through its paces. It rained a little.

Adam wiping out and hitting a tree: the moment of helmet to tree impact. There are actually more in the wipeout series (the leadup, the aftermath), if you go to the page. No worries, he’s fine, the helmet absorbed the impact.
