Happy New Year! I can’t believe we’re in 2013 already. Where has the season gone? Most of us have now traded in our bikes for some sort of winter activity – except for those hardcore riders still out riding in the wet, cold, or snowy weather. Personally, I’ve been getting out on my downhill and cross country skis. I miss being on the bike, but have enjoyed the last month of skiing Whistler/Backcomb. After all, the snow has been awesome and the weather so much milder than I’m used to coming from Canmore, Alberta. Soon I’ll be back on my bike again to expand the inventory of trails listed on bikepirate for our followers. However, in the meantime, as 2012 has come and gone, I’ve decided to reminisce about the season past by browsing all the photos taken by us in 2012 to bring you some of my favourite shots. Here’s to another season of riding endless singletrack; enjoy the photos and happy trails!
