Today's ride is going to test your technical riding ability, and potentially make you a little crazy. Whistler's Westside can be frustrating at times, but after completion will put a smile on your face you won't be able to wipe off.

Pura Vida has some steeper chutes to watch out for, but looking far ahead will help you get through them no sweat.

After cleaning Pura Vida, Flowers and Butterflies will help build your confidence before you climb back up to AC/DC, where you may question why you even ride bikes.

Expect this ride to take about 2-3 hours depending on how you manage with the steep, somewhat technical climbing at the start.
