The Road's End: 2013 in Review

We drove nearly 30,000 miles in 2013, visited trails in 13 states across the country, and met some of the most amazing people at every trailhead. Of the countless photographs we snapped and shared along the way, we decided to pull 50 of our very favorites to share with you...

Circle the Wagons

We knew back in January at the outset of this year that Sea Otter and Outerbike would be the two bookends, between which the goals of our summer travel season would be targeted. Outerbike would not only be the unofficial wrap-party for our season, it would also mark the final...

Between the Eyes

From Chicago, we pointed the Sprinter north, hugging the eastern shores of Lake Michigan. The goal of this journey was to chase IMBA Epic trails from the Pacific all the way to the Atlantic, but after spending well over 30 hours on the road staring at white lines disappear beneath...

Mountain Bikers The Bucket List

“If you are a mountain biker, this is your bucket list.” A bold, and appropriately succinct statement for sure, but not one without warrant. This is how the International Mountain Bike Association (IMBA) sums up their “Epic” designated rides. All over North America, these are the rides that epitomize the...

Shuttling Up to Downieville Classic

If you haven't raced it, participated in it, or already added the Downieville Classic to your bucket list, you are missing out on a slice of some of the most entrenched roots in mountain biking — not only here in the West, but in much of the United States. In...

Blitzing the Barrel

Mountain biking on a golf course? Huge cash payouts for not only an extended podium, but for the longest wheelie? Sprint finishes decided by the tipping of a plastic cup? Arm-wrestling in the bonus round? Only in Bend, and only at Blitz the Barrel — a super-exclusive, and rightfully unique...

Inside #803 at the Sea Otter Classic

We’re back in Marin for a few days; shaking off the thin veneer of Laguna Seca dust, catching up on a pretty major backlog of emails, and putting in lap after gleeful lap on the new Tamarancho flow trail (rumored to be soon christened “Endor”). But before the Sprinter gets...

Once Upon a Time in the California Frontier (Keyesville Classic)

Unlike the vast majority of sporting lore, the story of mountain biking is relatively young. One could even say that the torch has yet to be completely passed from its pioneers to a new generation. Even at this young age, there are very few mountain biking events in the United...

A Preamble to Life on the Road

Kitsbow is in the enviable position of planning a trip spanning five consecutive months of summer vacation aboard a full-sized, self-sustaining Mercedes Benz Sprinter van stocked with all our bikes and photography gear. But even as intoxicating as the thought of sending this adventure-mobile off into the wild expanse of...
