Fun rip on the Burnaby Mountain lower trails... start off with Dead Moped and head to Ben & Jerry's before a short climb up the TCT. From there, a bit of a steep up the classic Mel's trail to head across the mountain towards the fun and flowy Gearjammer. Take the fork right and take Uppercut which connects to Lower Snake to finish on of the best long intermediate descents on the mountain. Scoot back up the Powerline Trail for a climb to finish off with another long descent down the entire North Road Trail. At the bottom, head back up the Powerline Trail and back to the parking area... or hell do it all again!?
