      North Vancouver RCMP were called to Mt. Fromme in the early afternoon of Monday, June 10. Details are scarce at the moment but North Shore Rescue has reported that a rider succumbed to injuries sustained on Pipeline, a trail with a blue-black designation. The rider was apparently visiting from Idaho, and next of kin have been notified.

      My thoughts and prayers are with the family.

      Ride safe out there, guys.

      Man i hate to hear about anyone losing their life. I think we all forget that there are some inherent risks involved with this sport. I don’t know the rider or the skill level he had but this is a prime example of riding within your limits and also riding with someone. To be found by others means that he was riding alone and while the exact cause of death isn’t known it could possibly have been a serious injury instead of a death if medics could have been called quickly enough.

      My thoughts and prayers go out to the rider and his family.

      I hate seeing this. I often ride alone, due to the fact that I never have weekends off from work and it seems everyone else does. I make sure every time I head out alone to call at least two people (usually my wife and parents) to let them know where I’m going. Be safe out there gals and fellas!
