EB Riding Tip:

Cornering tip: To develop solid cornering skills for moderate to high speed flat corners, try rotating your torso to look into the desired direction of your turn with 'all 3 eyes'. As you increase speed, get lower and lower to keep a low centre of gravity, to be able to lean the bike over farther to gain traction and maintain momentum! Have fun!

Endless Biking & ZEP team up to form PMBIA

Mountain bike is still a relatively young sport and a professional standard for instruction, like what snow-sports has been enjoying for years has yet to be established, until now. Nearly ten years in the making, ZEP Mountain Bike Camps & Instructor Training has joined forces with Endless Biking to form the Professional Mountain Bike Instructor Association (PMBIA).

The PMBIA is an international certificate and industry recognized mountain bike Instructor and Guides training program. Endless Biking will be offering the new PMBI courses starting in 2015, after merging the MBIT and PMBI programs into one, unified course.

Check out the press release on pinkbike.com

Sign me up for a PMBI course through Endless Biking!

New programs being announced for 2015

We will be announcing some new 2015 programs, as well as the return of some of our very popular ones, later in January, so be sure to follow our Facebook page and/or sign up for our eNews to stay in the loop.

We’ve been updating some internal systems at EB as well as building a new website for 2015, so we’ll have a bunch of freshness and some cool news to share, giving you more options to get rad on your bike this year.

We are very excited to open the doors for the season and to ride with you all very soon.  We’ll be at the Vancouver Bike Show on March 7-8, 2015 and there will be some great show specials and a chance to meet most of the team at the show.  So put it on your calendars and plan to come on down to say hi and have some fun with people who like bikes.

Ride with you soon…

Growing up – Endless Biking – by Jordan Thomas

Words: Jordan Thomas

A look at what it’s like to have a 10 year old (company that is) Gaining perspective from an outsiders look….

So what makes a company last these days, especially a bike company when life is getting more expensive everyday?
Like anything I think both people and attitudes make or break the chance of being truly successful. The likelihood of a newborn company to acquire the right people sharing a common passion for the same goals is becoming increasingly rare.
Endless Biking has beaten the odds, powered through the awkward years and has now entered the double digits. Lets break down their philosophy to see what holds true at Endless Biking, we they are committed to building a sustainable future for mountain biking.
All staff volunteer their time to everything from trail days to community events / Teach clients the ways of environmental stewardship and promote riding to work everyday. “Biophilia” google it.
“We will work hard to improve participation, access, awareness and performance in the sport”.

As members of the NSMBA, PMBI, WFA and neighbouring with SUSPENSION WERX & MARX CONDITIONING every aspect is covered with many others I’m forgetting.  Every year visiting elementary schools teaching the importance of safe riding and how you can open your world with your bike.
“We believe in cycling as a great activity for all ages and abilities of skill and fitness. An activity
you can do with the whole family or challenge your personal goals”.

Offering programs for all levels giving each customer a perfect fit anywhere from an “allocentric” program of staying within comfort zones all the way to a “psycho-centric” program pushing your limits learning what it out there and possible.
So what happens when your ten?…

Invite all your friends over, laugh, eat food, play on your bikes out front and end with a good old fashioned party!!!
The morning started with general setup of tents, tables and a offering of a plethora of bikes for people to try out throughout the days festivities. Each staff member with grins from ear to ear excited to talk about and use what they love…. BIKES!!!
Doors opened to public by 9am to rent bikes, sign-up for shuttles or simply talk shop. The turnout was amazing with a mix of friends, family, locals and a sprinkling of pros to top it off.
Attending the event myself I can’t say enough about how accommodating EB was to everyone stopping by. The amount of love for the industry would have been apparent even if you were blind or deaf. The vibe was one to talk about and the perfect send off to another amazing season on the north shore.
It will never get old walking up to DARREN FREAKING BUTLER and having him know who you are and have him share genuine gratitude for you supporting the company his wife and legend herself Kelli Sherbinin started 10 years ago.
Mountain biking has come a long way in the past decade and so has the coaching techniques that bring beginners into the sport. As EB is aware of this fact they in classic EB fashion offered multiple free clinics throughout the entire day to emphasize the important base skills that advanced maneuvers rely on.
Getting back from one of the many free shuttles feeling famished, you would find yourself in luck with a variety of snacks, burgers and drinks to fuel up for the afternoons adventures.
The day continued with more tours, rentals and pointing people in the direction of the NSMBA gear swap. It was all smiles, all day and all out a great day with great people.
I can’t thank the Endless Biking staff and everyone else involved for volunteering their time to celebrating a mutual love for a sport I feel deserves every bit of coverage it can get.  Never stop learning and may all your trails be “Endless”

Pinbike: Mother Huckers – by Danielle Baker

When you liberate a group of moms from a morning of Dora the Explorer, and give them bikes instead, not even the rain will dampen their spirits. . .or shorten their conversations. No matter how passionate you are about riding, having a child changes your world. It changes how you do things, how long it takes you to do things, and most importantly, how much you do for yourself.

At one time in your life you may have looked outside to a sunny day, grabbed your bike and headed off for hours of riding without a care in the world. Days like that feel like a distant memory when you are trying to get out the door and your child is having a meltdown. You are almost always late by the time you make ten trips out to the car, are confident that you have everything, the tears are dried, the pouting has subsided and a suitable distraction found. Technical climbs and rocky descents used to be the hardest part of the ride, but now simply exiting the house leaves you exhausted. Read ARTICLE

Pinbike Article: Endless Biking – Roots

We are celebrating our 10th  anniversary with a series of 10 stories on Pinkbike. The 10 articles will revolve around learning, community and the fundamentals of Endless Biking.
Check out the first story  by Danielle Baker : “The Roots”

The roots of Endless Biking push back beyond their inaugural camps in 2004 to the early 90’s and days of riding in hiking boots and chasing buffalo on borrowed bikes. Raised in non-mountain biking families, Kelli and Darren, owners and operators of Endless Biking, both still remember the moment that riding came into their lives and the profound change it brought with it.

In Nelson, British Columbia, Kelli remembers a purposeful adventure on borrowed bikes into the mountains that made her both want to puke – on the climb – and feel the spark of addiction – on the singletrack. Immediately she began to dream about the feeling of being a kid again and it was not long after that she got her very first bank loan and purchased her very first mountain bike. Making the transition from organized school sports to a ‘fringe’ sport that your parents can neither watch nor participate in can be a challenge and often the support and encouragement is lacking. With little main stream media attention available at the time Kelli’s conversations with her family often ended with “Oh. So, you’re crazy.”

“My family thought I had a boyfriend who beat me because I would always come home with all these bruises everywhere. They did not understand mountain biking.”

Two years later, and unknown to Kelli at the time, Darren would suddenly and surprisingly give up his career towards a hockey scholarship and take off down a parallel path. Getting back to his family roots, Darren discovered riding in Waskesiu, Saskatchewan, chasing buffalo with friends. READ FULL STORY.
