During IMBA’s staff week, we had the chance to sit down with Pete Webber, IMBA Trail Specialist , and learn more about the Valmont Bike Park. He pulled out the original blue prints and shared the scoop on this incredible project. For those uninformed of the scope of the project, the Valmont Bike Park is […]
We’ve now been in Boulder for over two weeks and are about to finally head on the road. Our first week began with a meet and greet with the office staff here at IMBA, the International Mountain Bicycling Association. We learned quite a bit, and are a bit overwhelmed even with the sheer amount of […]
We get our new Fisher Roscoe trail bikes, and see what they are made of.
Boulder, Colorado has a lot of great riding for the dirt jumper/ freeride/ downhiller demographic. Between the jumps at the Fix, 63rd, the Boulder skatepark, and the Gunbarrel Jumps at Eaton Park, there is a lot of fun to be had. When you add all the awesome places to ride within an hour’s drive, the […]
Time is running out. We ask that all of our friends that ride bikes take a moment to add a comment on IMBA.com. All comments will help the cause- even if you just click the sample form. The worst case scenario is that Mountain Bikers stay apathetic on this issue- and harm our chances at further access […]
One of the best things about Boulder is how bike friendly this town is. On top of that, there are a ton of places to freeride and dirt jump. With the addition of the much hyped Valmont Bike Park, Boulder is straight writing itself into the map. The bike love even extends to the skatepark, […]
We finally received a taste of Colorado single track last week when we rode the Hall Ranch Trails. Once we had picked up our Subaru supplied IMBA car and our new Fisher Roscoe trail bikes, (and customized them with some key spec changes for getting rad), we were anxious to get them out on a […]
Seattle’s I-5 Colonnade Freeride Mountain Bike Park is nothing short of revolutionary in the fight to gain more urban mountain bike facilities. Located under a stretch of the I-5 freeway just a few exits from downtown, the park is a maze of visual wonderment. What the local bike club has achieved is just incredible. They […]
We spent our New Year’s Day on the couch, talking about bikes, and watching videos and movies. Not to mention, doing a bit of recovery from the previous night’s festivities. Our host, Rocker Dave Walker, was telling us about some covered Dirt Jumps a short drive from Portland, located in Salem, Oregon. A quick check […]
Every year more and more innovative products are put on the market for mountain bikers. While every one has their favorite, looking back at 2008, my favorite gear purchase ended up being a pair of shoes. To be specific, the Impact 2 Low Freeride shoe featuring a Stealth Rubber sole by FiveTen, AKA 5.10.
It has been a unpleasant couple of weeks, filled with much more drama than was necessary, but we have finally wrapped up our lives in San Francisco. Stuffing the contents of my life into a 5×8 foot box in a warehouse was considerably more difficult than I had expected. Even after getting rid of three […]
This is what I love about living in California. While everyone else is complaining of negative temperatures, we’re riding our bikes in the sun. Yesterday I met my buddy Adam from MTBR down in Belmont to ride DMC. Also known as Carlmont, (the common spot to park is at the end of Carlmont Street) this […]
