As far as advocacy groups go, Evergreen Mountain Bike Alliance has got it going on. Even if you havenâ€™t heard of them, it’s likely youâ€™ve read about what theyâ€™ve accomplished. Formerly known as the Backcountry Bicycle Trails Club, Evergreen is the advocacy group responsible for the creation of the first urban mountain bike skills park, […]
Add this to the “I want” category. Trek World 2010 is currently going on right now, and while we’ve known it was coming, images of the highly anticipated 2010 Trek Scratch are finally emerging online. We’ve seen variations of this bike underneath Cam McCaul for some time now, but the word is finally out.
Kelowna was our first stop of three for our Subaru/ IMBA TCC tour of Canada, and our first taste of some real BC single track. We learned an important lesson on our drive east from Vancouver; when you see a gas station and you don’t know where the next one is, always stop and top […]
On a recent trip to the San Francisco Bay area, we had a chance to play at our old stomping grounds in Pacifica. A small surf town located south of San Francisco, Pacifica is especially known in the bike community for its network of trails that overlook the Pacific Ocean. As the Bay Area is […]
We just got a GoPro Hero Wide Angle Helmet Video Camera in, right in time for our trip to Whistler, BC. Out of the box, it includes everything you’ll need to strap it to your head or helmet, as well as four quick-release adhesive mounts for placing the camera on bikes, skis, cars, or whatever […]
First off, whatever you do, make an effort to pronounce Hurricane correctly. If you don’t, you’re bound to be the subject of some heckling. If you say it more like “Hurri-kin,” as opposed to “Hurri-cane,” you’ll find yourself much better off and spare yourself a good deal of public shaming.
Our next stop on the traveling road tour was El Paso, Texas. At this point the IMBA crews split off and headed their separate ways. Kelly and Collins headed back east, while Inga and myself were to make our way towards the Pacific, through the southwest.
After our job in Payson, Arizona, the two Trail Care Crews traveled to Carlsbad, New Mexico. On the way south we stopped in Tucson to ride with some friends.
We’re in Monterey celebrating the official kick off of the 09 cycling season here at the Sea Otter Classic. It’s a good time, as it is every year, with all the newest & latest cool gear on display and all the cycling elite are out and about. Inga and I have been working at the […]
We had first become aware of the freeriding in New Mexico through David Fibley of Southwest Freeride. We weren’t sure what to expect, but after our experience in El Paso with the Roughriders, we realized how much incredible terrain the southwest had to offer. We weren’t sure we would be able to make it up […]
Life on the road can be a bit hectic. Trying to balance bike advocacy with having a personal life, as well as trying to maintain a semblance of physical fitness has been a challenge, but after a few months of living on the road, we’re actually managing to get into a sort of non-routine-routine. If […]
When living as a road based nomad, it is always good to find a place to check out for a bit and hide. Even better if it’s known for gorgeous scenery and legendary trails. After a Subaru/ IMBA Trail Care Crew visit to Phoenix, we choose to make Sedona, Arizona as the place to make […]
