These rides are not guided and just recommended routes. Santa Cruz, 4Lise, and Trailforks take no responsibility for your actions. Ride with a friend, ride smart, look before you leap.

A modern Whistler classic descent on Blackcomb, MicroClimate. A real bugger of a climb and then a rooty, steep, wild ride down. Santa Cruz Bicycles and 4Lise are hosting these informal group rides throughout Crankworx. If you can't join us then follow the route on Trailforks whenever suits you. We'll be hiding prizes on the trail each morning and leaving clues across our friends social media channels. Follow and search #riseandgrindcrankworx for cryptic clues.

Better than I thought it would be! Blown out in a few sections but mostly awesome.

Road has become pretty punched by the continual traffic of WB Side-by-sides of late. Saw 6 on 2 different climbs yesterday. They don't seem to enjoy yielding to bikers either. Gotta love the smell of gas!
