I'm sure these guys have a blast filming ...but boooooooring.
We have a blast riding.
We have a blast riding. The filming is a bit of fun to show what some people are missing. Sure the videos don't have the same production value as a lot of MTB shows, but it's great to hear from people who've used them to plan their road trips. Can't ask for more than that.
Thanks! This makes trail selection in the Nelson area a little easier. Would be nice for you to post the rest of the vids that are on your website!
