stephen_matthews An amazing day for January! Over 2500ft of climbing and descents filled with soft singletrack and steep rock faces. We spent today on the rides at Disneyland! @jensklett @joereid123#chromag #GetOneUp #Dissentfamily #Squamish 2w

stephen_matthews Issue 155 of @dirtmagazine is now available and features a story I wrote called, "Code Orange". It's a tale of 3 Canadians and 1 Swede riding a Hut-to-Hut style route in the Icelandic Highlands. I'll give away the ending and tell you we finished with shots of Brennivin, me correctly guessing an Icelandic woman's perfume, and too many hot dogs to count.

stephen_matthews Dropping in on a Sea to Sky rock slab. December has been an On/Off month for riding because of the heavy rains, but as a whole, this part of the world is pretty dialled for winter riding!
