Biking to the hill… in ski boots

This morning I woke up and asked myself what would be the most stupid thing I could do today. Can you bike to a ski hill, on your ski boots? Turns out the answer is yes. Although maybe not advisable...

I also found a good way to attach my skis to the bike. With a couple of ski traps, you can attach them on both sides of your bike, along the main beam from the seat to the front. Very easy!

But, I forgot to take my poles. Duh.

Ripping Whistler’s Double Black Dirt Merchant on a Cyclocross Bike

Cyclocross bikes are a good option for those who love the conditioning and experience of a road bike but want to experience a little more rough terrains. This might mean fire roads or gravel-strewn byways, but in this case, it means Whistler's double-black rated Dirt Merchant trail. With no suspension to speak of and questionable brakes, the riding in this video takes an incredible amount of skill.

We are not unlike Pavlov's Dog, trained to laugh and giggle at someone else's misfortune. Today, that person is sliding down the entire length of Corbet's Couloir.
