There’s no place I’d rather be at the start of summer than Vancouver Island. Every year when June hits, there’s a special energy buzzing in the air. This is my favourite time of the year to go for a ride, jump the river, and end the day off with a beach fire.
For this video, we stuck to Mt Prevost in the Cowichan Valley, which is one of my all-time favourite places to ride here! The gate up to Prevost usually closes off the summer due to fire hazards, but we got up there just in time. There was zero dust, the trails were fast, everything was popping with green.
We shot this video in just 2 days, but what felt like the longest 2 days of the year. Going non-stop from Sunrise to sunset, we made the most of the beautiful weather and perfect trail conditions. Thanks for watching and I hope you’re inspired to get out there and shred!
