The Vancouver crew is taking the local jam to the next level bymaking it a multi-day event with the schedule as follows:
"July 18 - Squamish & Whistler trip. We travel on the super scenic Sea to Sky highway (google it) in the morning with a first stop in Squamish (about an hour from Vancouver) and do a little hike (the Chief) or rock climbing for those who want. Then lunch then we continue to Whistler resort (famous snowboarding spot). We ride there the whole afternoon. Back to Van in the evening.

Sunday July 21 is the post jam day. We ll ride another spot with whoever wants to. During the afternoon, most people will start going back home."

We thought flatland was pretty hard as it is but imagine you only had one hand? Seems impossible? Joey Gaze from Malaysia proves the opposite. He dropped us this short edit and it's simply impressive. Keep riding Joey!
