Hellracer 250

At 7mesh, cycling means more to us than just racing.  That’s not to say that we don’t race, rather that we do so much more with our bikes than merely compete.  We ride because it’s fun, because it’s convenient.  Because there are places to be explored, and places to be discovered.  The biggest reason we […]

A showcase trail of the Squamish mountain bike network, Half Nelson should be on everyone’s must ride list.

Deep(ish) in the Squamish Valley

Squamish winters can be a little cold and wet – not always the friendliest for riding.  So it’s no surprise that as the temperatures warm and the days get longer, the talk of epic rides and new accomplishments ramps up with the amount of daylight.  Perhaps the only thing that ramps up faster than the […]
