Check Out Transition’s Ode to PNW Loam

Tucked away in the northwest corner of the USA lies a veritable paradise of mountain biking. With lush forests and the loamiest of dirt, Bellingham, Washington is a promised land for those who seek out the gnarliest, steepest, and rawest trails. It’s no wonder that bike brands like Transition call those mountains home, putting their machines to the test day in and day out on these ever-evolving trails.

Local ripper John Richardson shows us around some of his favorite loam lines in his latest edit, but he sure as hell won’t share where they are.

From Transition:

Like a powder day on skis, the organic material provides a bottomless feeling. Pushing deep into turns, and releasing soil with each revolution of the wheel. During this special time, even the trail sounds different. Rolling over years of compressed leaves, bark, sticks and red rot sends a hollow echo through the ground that you can almost feel in your chest. But for these reasons, it doesn't last long. Soon enough the soil will be displaced, roots and rocks exposed, and the once deep and soft tones will be replaced with harsh thuds as your tires catch newly formed braking bumps. But luckily there's always the next trail, or the next storm, bringing another powder day.

I am so glad to see this mountain bike racing video and How to improve phone signal it is very interesting too. I like bike racing and I am always used to watch some mountain bike racing videos in my free time. You gave a detailed description too.
