Hey, I'm new to the area (will move in a few days to north van) and was wondering whether there is a mtb club or a group that meets once a week to go biking, happily also taking girls rides? Is there a facebook group? Or how do ppl organise the rides? Thank you so much! :-)

Cheers to everyone who Fondo'ed today
Good to see other people out and have a chance to briefly talk to some of you

I submitted both my iphone and etres tracks
The Trail Forks app granted the etrex 3 more trails (still missed some like roadside attraction and part of No 1/4)
Do I just delete the iphone track? Will that screw up anything? The climb data is fishy (should be 4000+ m not 12000+ m)

This year was tougher.

Tree cover is slowing response of various GPS devices I have been testing. I find that the cursor on Garmin ETREX 30 is about 30 m behind and Garmin MapGPS64 is about 20 m behind where I really am, and if I wait on trail, the cursor gradually jerks along before catching up. Looking at the cursor on my iphone is even more confusing as it shows me doing weird loops, such as being south of Mtn Hwy when I go down Leppard, but being well north of Leppard when riding up Mtn Highway.

This year I am challenging myself to ride the full length of every trail from end to end as they are mapped on the Trail Forks map. So lots of extra out and backs, such as going down 7th means detouring out to the road for a 180 degree turn before resuming down Leppard, heading up Upper Dreamweaver for a 180 before resuming down Lower Dreamweaver etc. (I still hope to ride/pedal/clean nearly 100% and not hike, with the exception of out and backs where at least in one direction it should be rideable this time too).
The big problem I find to get a legal track for some trails, is to bushwhack off trail to follow the line mapped onto my device, or to circle around a trail head and trail finish until the cursor overlies the mapped track. IT WRECKS MY FLOW MAN!
It looks like with the edit feature shown on your how to video, I will get a blank after the trail name, instead of a time or star for trails submitted after the fact

Can I just ride all the trails end to end as mapped, WITHOUT SUPERFLUOUS CURSOR WANKING, and add as many as 20 trails with that edit feature when I get home?

Some hints to get Trail Forks to detect your ride
• Leppard – you must start on the road near the Expresso entrance
• Pipeline – you need to head west/right at the bottom and go at least 30 m before heading east (if you want to head east)
• Lower Dream Weaver – you need to start heading down 30 m up Upper Dreamweaver (past the Executioner BP trail)
• Water Towers Connector – you need to go all the way from the parking lot to the Middle Griffin junction or vice versa
• The Skull -start east of the trail entrance
• Griffen Uphill – I have no idea and been testing both my phone and a Garmin ETrex

How many trails are possible (yes I know you only have to do 10)?
Everything down from 7th (or higher?) to Dempsey? to Hwy 1? or to sea level?

Nothing Higher than the top of 7th. It would just be the sanctioned trails on Mount Fromme so if you've moved south past Dempsey Road, you'd be out of the area.
