Area of North Vancouver, Canada famous for its world class mountain biking. The North Shore is a major draw for thousands of riders every year from all over North America and the world. The North Shore's bike trails (if you can call them that) include big drops (3'-15'), elevated wooden rails, teeder-todders and all sorts of other goodies that scare good, hard-working, honest folks like my parents. They're one of the most fun ways to risk your life on two wheels, as they're hard enough to walk on, let alone ride. North Van's bike trails have starred in many bike movies, especially my favorite, the Kranked movies and are ridden by some of Canada's best riders, such as Kris Holm (on a unicycle).
