Added a new video Trail Riding Quadra Island 4/22/2015 12:12 AM

Fault Line TV explores the trails of Quadra Island. From Fault Line TV: "Quadra Island’s website states that the island residents are an extremely diverse and unique community of individuals, who share the passion of the island existence, but enjoy a variety of different professions. When we talk about individuality, a picture is painted of forging your own path and creating one’s own free existence. Sam Whittingham is very much so at the core of individuality. Sam created Naked Bicycles, a handmade bicycle manufacturer situated on Quadra Island, a cornerstone in the discovery islands. "Our first stop on Quadra was Naked Bicycles; to meet Sam, and thoroughly discuss the trail network he is responsible for creating. After an enlightening conversation about his workshop, and the interesting client base he has created, we got guided around the trails in the forest behind his house. This was a great introduction to the trail designs that trend across the island. "The trails that we were lucky enough to ride incorporated steep climbs, steep descents, and everything in between with one exception to the rule. Crikey Creek is the local shuttle trail, this trail is short and fast, best enjoyed on a trail bike. It includes from what we’ve seen, the largest amount of man-made jumps and turns. Due to deforestation methods, Crikey Creek did not succumb to clear cutting. Because it is situated right alongside a stream, the area has been preserved. The lack of logging makes for an absolutely beautiful second growth, moss-covered understory, and the trail seems to be painted into the landscape. "When juxtaposed against the ridge trail Silk Stockings, which is composed primarily of rock, we start to get an idea of what Quadra’s trail network offers in its entirety. Though polar to Crikey Creek, Silk Stockings brings the same beauty through its wide-open views of the ocean and abundance of moss covered rock. It’s not as developed, and requires work to go fast, but the pain suffered on the climb is well worth the descent. "The Quadra trail network is incredible, but don’t stop there. With a large portion of the island being uninhabited, this offers the chance to witness relatively undisturbed ecosystems. Make sure to bring your mountain bike on any adventure you wish to undertake."

Roses are red and violets are blue. My favorite days are those spent shredding with you. Mountain bike couple Macky Franklin and Syd Schulz have never been that into Valentine's day. Why waste time on candlelit dinners when you could be spending the afternoon ripping down pristine New Zealand singletrack? This video is their ideal date -- a little romance and a lot of shred -- kneepads and roses. Video by Sean Leader

From the scorching sand dunes of Namibia to the bleak, almost martian landscape of Iceland, Team InFocus have travelled to some of the most hostile natural environments to pit metal and rubber against the elements. For the final installment of the Into the Dirt series, however, they return to the spiritual home of freeride. Whistler Bike Park is one of, if not, the most famous mountain bike locations on earth and somewhere that the team have long called a second home. But what is Whistler? What does it mean to the riders? Is this the best riding spot in the world? Watch and see.
