Q & A with Eric

Any advice on van-life?
Just do it! Waking up at the trailhead for a ride is a mountain bikers dream, isn’t it? And having cold drinks waiting for you at the end of the ride is just the cherry on top! Just get a van you can stand up in!

What is it like producing content on the road?
The biggest obstacle is finding a solid internet connection to upload videos. So that means a lot of time spent at libraries, coffee shops and having an unlimited data plan on your phone.

Where are your favorite rides?

It’s hard to choose a favorite.. It’s always hard to beat those trails in BC. But some highlights have been Oaxaca, Mexico for its amazing food and big elevation. Moab and Sedona for their surreal terrain. And there’s a little place called Blue Lake in Northern California that has some unbelievable trails amongst the redwoods.
