A TIME TRIAL – Day 5, The legendary North Shore will be executed in a Time Trial format; Riders will be released in small timed intervals. Though short in length, the burly nature of the North Shore makes these kilometers technical.
A classic roll out along the scenic Indian River Road before climbing up the Baden Powell trail to the Upper Old Buck. This will take riders upwards quickly to the first descent: Corkscrew, PINGU, after which the climbing carries on, double track to the power lines, and its the now famous first BCBR descent: Upper Severed D, Baden Powell, across After Taste and into Forever After and finally High School, the total on this descent is nearly 4km’s long.
From here you will wind your way upwards through some residential neighborhoods, an easy way to gain some elevation and rest your body. Once we plunge back into the forest the fun begins again – as you cross the first bridge the tech-gnar is on; Bridal Path across to the Academy Trail starts your second climb, R and T Connector, then Pussy Foot all taking you to the amazing climb of the Good Sir Martin Trail. Revel in the beauty of the forest around you – this is how hand-made trails should be. When the climb flattens out, you turn right onto the new revamped Jon Deere trail (thanks Martin and Penny for all the amazing work) pump, flow and enjoy this is heaven. Once you hit the bottom you will turn left onto the rough Bridal Path, then right down a fast and scary Empress Bypass – all the way home for another great celebration.

Trail Old Buck
Would probably just take the road up instead. After the Baden Powell and especially after the power line trail it is almost impossible unless you are a very good climber.

Trail John Deer
A guy at the trailhead told me this trail was "easy, fun, and flowy." I actually found it quite challenging, with 2-3 steep areas and many, many roots. Not a black but definitely more challenging than something like Half Nelson. I loved it but my more beginner-intermediate gf was having trouble.

Rode a section of this today for the first time. Climbed GSM and wanted to get to Forever After, so we took Baden Powell. BP to Severed D was pretty fun. More black than blue, in my opinion. From Severed towards Forever it got even steeper and more treacherous. You've been warned!

Difficult to find. The trailhead sign is facing the wrong direction for those looking for it on the way down. The mapb doesn't show it but the first bit is a moderately technical climb peaking at a large rock. Pretty chunky going down for a few sections all in a row. A harder black trail.

Folks who rated this trail low don’t appreciate the good things in life. A short trail thats easy to session , features steep rocks and roots. Its a bundle of fun, probably treacherous in the wet. The entrance is hard to find, but its a steep technical climb from the the bottom of pussyfoot where a bunch of trails intersect.

A bit stiff, but also the fastest ride to the top of corkscrew or CBC, IMO. Good Sir Martin is more twisty and detours out of the way, and straight up Buck cuts off a loop on Mtn. Highway. GSM is good for the second lap, since you are already over near Academy, etc.

We should really adopt the New Zealand trail grading system in Canada. It bridges the gap nicely between between 'hard blue's' and 'easy black's'. Windrock Bike Park, TN. Adopted the NZ grading system in the past year as well. It makes sense. Here's what it would look like:

NZ Trail Grading System:

Grade 1 - White (Easiest)
Grade 2 - Green (Easy)
Grade 3 - Blue (Intermediate)
Grade 4 - Dark Blue (Advanced)
Grade 5 - Black (Expert)
Grade 6 - Double Black (Extreme)
Grade 7 - Pro Line (Extremely Dangerous)

Challenging and enjoyable. The trail is pretty steep in some sections with tight switchbacks at steep grade with some rocks to traverse coming through the switchbacks. Physically and technically challenging. I find myself clipping rocks with my pedals and have yet to ride the whole thing without putting a foot down, but I’ll keep trying.

Thanks for clarifying Joe, and for the good work on the trail. The drop is certainly more solid now and will last a while! Only problem is, I think, that it's done so well that it blends in and one (or i at least) can't tell that something has changed until one's right upon it (or below itWink . So I put the comment for anyone else who follows their old lines, like me and might get surprised. And yes, there is a good ride-around, as well as a line to roll it.

Danger: 3rd drop from the top had been modified and is now higher. I've ridden this trail 100s of times and never had a problem rollong over all drops. Now it seems that there's been some work on the 3rd one from the top and, if taken in the middle, it's become a mandatory jump. There is no warning, and the modification is not obvious from above. There is still an OK roll line on the side, but you have to know it. If you're not OK jumping it, it's best to approach with caution!

That line had been a mandatory drop for the majority of the trails history. The old log that supported the trail had rotted away (making it roll-able) and the trail was ready to collapse: m.pinkbike.com/photo/18368337

I cribbed in the drop with a new piece of cedar to retain the trail and bring it back to its former state. You can see what it used to look like in older photos: ep1.pinkbike.org/p6pb8209236/p6pb8209236.jpg

I may make it roll-able in the future, but the trail is a black and all the drops have ride-arounds.

Cool trail, but confusing for many reasons:
1. the map makes a short section of this trail part of the climbing route, which seems odd
2. there is an old fall line trail that follows the RR climber that has a tree at the top with a tiny sign that says "Applicator" in marker but seems to point in the opposite direction
3. there is no signage for the actual Applicator turnoff?

Possibly my favourite section of the Seymour climb. The corners are open enough that you can get some good uphill flow going. And it takes you right to the rowdy part of Severed, perfect for tacking a little bit more onto the end of a ride.

Phenomenal climbing trail. Thanks for all the beautiful work Martin and Penny. Rode GSM for the first time today and enjoyed every inch of it. It's so great to be able to loop back to Baden without having to head over to Old Buck or Hyannis. Awesome. I'll definitely be heading up to ride some Seymour loops more often. Thanks again!

Great climbing trail. It climbs through a beautiful part of the forest, and the grade is nice and moderate.

My son and I rode Good Sir this morning which allowed us to do a couple of laps up there which doesn't happen often for us. The trail meanders beautifully through pristine forest and feels like it's been there forever - a testament to the fantastic engineering and careful planning that went into this right down to the precise fern transplanting! "Isn't this awesome!" was echoed by many of the other excited riders we encountered along the trail today. Congratulations Martin and Penny and to all the other volunteers! Good Sir Martin will be one of the most enjoyed trails on the north shore.

very fun XC trail. Minimal roots, some small drops and a lot of rolling terrain. Well maintained

This section gps'ed on Seymour is mostly all rideable. The section from "Old Buck" to the Powerlines was upgraded last winter for an easier climb and is used a lot.

The descent portion from the powerlines to the "BP to Powerline Connector" was upgraded for the BC Bike Race. The trail after this point is not rideable, it gets very steep with steps. Once it hits "Bridle Path" its rideable again.

Berms are soft on new work. Careful, there are a number of polished roots into corners after the new work that could take you out. Suggest deleting roots and generally dumbing down. reporter
