Trail Tales

Burnt Bridge Circa 1992

Since his first mountain bike in 1984, first clipless pedals in 1990, first suspension forks in 1991 and many more Colin has been interested in the world of off road cycling. Working at Caps Cycles in North Vancouver, he had a chance to become involved in a sport which was just in its infancy.

Now working hard as a trail advocate, map maker and by day chiropractor in Cumberland Chiropractic, Colin likes to see others benefit from his efforts. Working with the Island Cup Race Series, the BC Bike Race and United Riders of Cumberland, he takes joy in the growth of his favorite pastime.
