Cyclists who love the Dark Crystal Trail, located in Whistler, British Columbia, have Scott Veach to thank for its creation. Veach is a mountain biker who has been building trails for 20 years. With his Bosch-equipped Trek Rail e-bike as his mode of transport, he spends 40 days annually working on and improving Dark Crystal, which winds through old-growth forest and over moss-covered granite rocks. This film by Bosch eBike Systems shares Veach’s story.
