My girlfriend and I are moving to b-ham in a month. What are the trails like? What tires work well out there? Is there dh/dirt jumps in b-ham? I am also looking to rent a house/ duplex does anyone know a good resource for that?

Thanks alot we look forward to riding with some of you guys out there :D

My son lives in Bellingham and rides on Galbraith Mountain Fun trials, some with stunts and drops. They also just opened a dirt jump park near Civic Field I believe. The trails are fast and fun right now but you'll be needing tires that shred mud. Also you'll only be 3 hours away from Whistler :cool: .
As for housing check the local paper Bellingham Herald. Start looking now, as it gets closer to school starting at WWU it's harder to find anything to rent.

BTW people that live in Bellingham are called Hamsters :D

Not to mention....

....you'll be about an hour and a half (max) from the North Shore. Galbraith is super fun, but can be tricky if you don't have a good route. I had ridden it a few times without much success and then this spring, we ran into the right group of fellas who knew the trails well and had a much different experience up there.

There's some other FR stuff near B'ham....but you'll need to get in with the locals to find that stuff.

Cheers,
EB
