Riding ‘Lava Flow’ Trails, Squamish

Lately I had an urge to explore some off road trails on my Enduro motorcycle. The motorcycle that I own is a Honda XR650, street legal dirt bike. It is very powerful, but at the same time very heavy, which makes it very cumbersome and hard to ride more difficult trails. I was looking to find something not too tough, yet challenging enough for my heavy bike.

Living in British Columbia, there’s never a shortage of trails to explore. The area we decided to go ride is in Squamish, called ‘Lava Flow.’ See attached picture for the area map…

The trail we decided to take is called “Blaine’s Connector” which eventually turns to an intermediate trail “Blindside.” In the beginning I had a little difficulty with handling my heavy motorcycle, but as we got to Blindside, the trail became harder and harder. I got stuck many times, and it required lots of strength and energy to continue on the trail. I was soaked from sweat, and at the end I had no more energy for anything else. I was glad when we were back! It’s been awhile since I have worked so much!

Lesson learned; I need a smaller motorcycle for this level of riding. Will definitely be back with a more suitable bike!
