Squire John's Questionnaire 😎

In another life, I'm pretty sure I was many small pieces of
many other things. 

The best piece of advice I've ever been given is ‘pedal faster,
not harder’.

The best piece of advice I can give someone who has never
tried fat biking is ‘it is just like an indoor trainer/gym, but outdoors in nature and better in every way, and harder’ and ‘you are overdressed’.

If I could invent a holiday, it would definitely involve
everyone hiking winter trails, in the beauty of nature (to pack snow on trails down for excellent Fatbike riding).

 My favourite word in the English language is ‘Epic’,
requisite as a MTBer/Fatbiker as every ride is. 

If I were a superhero, my superpower would be time travel. 

If I could time travel I would go back to pick a better super power.

The best thing about biking in the winter is keeping nature
as my gym/playground where I can quiet my mind and nourish my soul. 

My favourite local biking trail is located at 3Stage/Pretty
River Provincial Park, after hikers have packed down trails. An absolute blast!

 Anything else you wish to add: Squire’s has fueled my
passion on bikes for many years. Their service dept. and sales staff especially have come through for me on parts, gear, fixes, warranty repairs, community even. Now they have began to do the same for my young children and I am so
happy to be able to represent them with the local, Provincial, and National riding communities in my DH and Enduro Summer Racing, Summer Coaching and Youth Mountain Bike Engagement, and Winter Fatbiking/Racing.
