Tom van Steenbergen - This Is Home - BIKE BIG WHITE

Tom van Steenbergen - This Is Home from Ride Shimano on Vimeo.
What an epic project to be apart of. Tom teamed up with our crew out at Bike Big White and we built this all time roaster of a line. (Catch the Big White section in the 2nd half of the edit.) The shear scale and vertical covered in this soon to be named trail is massive.

The Hamilton Ontario Pumptrack

Are pumptracks the future playgounds? The survey at the new Hamilton, Ontario pumptrack says: YES. The response to the Gage Bike Park Pumptrack has been immensely positive and the community that surrounds the park is the reason. The ecstatic community engagement in the beginning stages helped the project get off the ground and in the end dug a little deeper to make it a reality. Its a daunting thing for 3 youths to go to to their city council and ask for a bike park. But in Hamilton's case, this is what sparked the entire project.
