My name is Jacob Ruether. I am 16 years old and attend Handsworth Secondary in North Vancouver. I have been obsessed with bikes ever since I can remember, and I don’t think this obsession is going to go away any time soon! I like going fast that is why I am going to be racing DH this season. Riding on the Polartec Team John Henry Bikes powered by Ethical Bean is amazing with so many cool people, the adventure never stops. I am proud to be part of such a dedicated group helping underprivileged kids receive the bikes that they dream about. Riding bikes is magical and everyone deserves to experience this.
Went up to whistler yesterday for the first time on my new bike and absolutely loved it. Got some good training in with Nick Le Mare. Rode lots of double blacks and I would have to say my favourite trails are Fatcrobat and In Deep. Was not able to snap any pictures of the mayhem on some of the trails but im sure most of you can imagine what some of the most techy lines whistler has to offer would look like.
