SW Ridge Trail – Las Vegas, NV

This time of year, heading south has always been the ticket for discovering new riding and winter time destinations. Since we have family based on the Las Vegas area, we took the opportunity to explore the area. Most think first of the strip when Las Vegas comes to mind, but the area also happens to boast […]

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 […]

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 […]

Downieville: the Mt Elwell Mission

Downieville Outfitters refers to Mt. Elwell as “one of Downieville’s best kept secrets.” Before last weekend I had never heard of Mt. Elwell. If not for our crew of knowledgeable folks, we probably wouldn’t even have this ride on our must-do list, so I’m inclined to agree. Until recently, we’ve been huddled with the masses ourselves. […]

Destination Downieville: the Mills Peak Trail

Riding sweet new trail is an amazing experience, especially when you find yourself stuck in somewhat of a rut. We’ve been on a mission of sorts to break out of our usual habits when it comes to riding this season, and have been seeking out new trail experiences for our weekend riding destinations. Downieville is best known for […]

SoCal: Snow Summit Bike Park at Big Bear Lake

Big Bear is legendary in the history of our sport, but until recently hasn’t been a destination after closing to downhill mountain bikes in 2004. Fortunately for riders in SoCal, the resort has seen the light and recently reopened to gravity riding. Taking cues from the financial success in Whistler, Gravity Logic— the outfit responsible for […]
