#AdventureLife: Travis Burke’s Dodge Ram Van Slash Adventuremobile

In our ideal world, we’d be heading away from civilization toward epic trails every Friday at 5pm. Our Honda Element has been doing a pretty good job of getting us there and back, but recently I’ve been dreaming about a vehicle that is more capable of housing us comfortably when we’re not riding. At the moment, my […]

Ray’s Indoor Mountain Bike Park

Located 20 minutes north of downtown Milwaukee, Ray’s MKE is one of the two largest indoor mountain bike parks in the country. (Ray’s Cleveland is the other) They pack a serious amount of awesome into the park; I spent a little over 11 hours riding in two days and it went by way too quickly. This place is huge, […]

Destination Sedona Part 2: Hiline to Baldwin and Pig Tail

The small town of Sedona, Arizona is known for formations of red rock that poke out from a sea of green. We’re more interested in the miles of single track that surround the town, and the temperate, semi-arid climate that make it such an excellent winter time destination. During our recent visit, the temperatures varied from […]

Sedona: Southwest Trail Destination

Sedona. It’s a magical place. We’ve never once been there and not had an epic experience. The small tourist town is surrounded with trail options containing hundreds of miles of single track, but like much of the riding in the southwest, sharp rocks, cacti and dagger-like yucca plants surround you; even small mistakes while riding can result […]

The Blue Diamond Loop — Las Vegas, NV

Las Vegas is a town known for it’s nightlife, but there’s a surprising amount of outdoor recreation to be found in the surrounding areas. As mountain bikers, we think of Bootleg Canyon in nearby Boulder City when we think of Vegas riding, thanks to the Outdoor Dirt Demo and the Interbike tradeshow. Most of the year […]

Throwback #TBT: 2006 CHDH AKA the Corral Hollow Downhill

The Corral Hollow Downhill was an underground downhill race held at a ORV area in the Carnegie State Vehicular Recreation Area put on by RideSFO in 2006 and 2007. Before then it had been known as the Groovy Gravity Games. Between the spring series of dual slalom and mountain cross races at Sand Hill Ranch and these […]

Style Check: DHaRCO Riding Kit in Dazzling Blue

My fangirl affair with DHaRCO riding kit continues, prompting me to post yet another Style Check after a recent purchase — the women’s gravity shorts and matching 3/4 trail jersey in blue. As I stated in my previous post, (click here) I’m drawn to DHaRCO’s bright feminine colors, tailored cuts and well thought out ensembles. So much so that I […]

Southern Oregon Trail Destination: Jacksonville Forest Park

Southern Oregon has become a popular mountain biking destination thanks to the fun trail network on Mount Ashland. The entire region is filled with amazing potential for riding terrain, and thanks to income from single track tourism, other parts of the region are being developed as riding destinations. One of these is located just up the […]

Sombrio Black Metal Jersey and Pinner Shorts Review

When MTB apparel outfit Sombrio was having difficulties last year, we were bummed as we’ve been fans of their gear for some time. Although some of their graphics can be hit or miss for us, the brand has its roots in the dirt, the gear is well constructed and I’m a fan of the fit. Fortunately it […]

Style Check: Club Ride Deer Abby Jersey

Club Ride made their name with casual but functional pieces that buck tradition. You don’t have to resemble a stuffed sausage on the trail, and the world is better for it. For 2015 they’ve expanded their line with additional looks that have a cut and silhouette more along the lines of traditional riding garb, but […]
