The idea of “adventure” is often tied to the act of jumping on a plane and heading to some exotic destination like the Himalayas, the Alps, or the Caribbean. Ultra-distance cyclist Lael Wilcox doesn’t see it that way. Her first adventure ride started from her own garage in Alaska, and her bike was the vessel for exploring. Over time, she gradually pushed her limits on her bike and won notable events like the Trans Am Bike Race in 2016.

In Lael Rides Alaska, we follow along with her on this quest, and the best part is she wants you to join the ride. If there’s anything Wilcox wants you to take away from this video, it is the ability to pursue your own adventures—even in her home state!

Well, we’re glad he’s finally decided to throw a leg back over the saddle and join his friends on the Rocky Mountain enduro squad for some off-season riding in the woods around home. It never gets old watching him chase Andreane Lanthier
If the Disney movie and our film had a love child, it would be this edit. Seriously, though. Kilian Bron and Commencal Bikes abseloutely killed it on this one. Not only do they capture some pretty unbelievable riding, but they've also managed to highlight the beauty of this Middle Eastern haven. Between the excellent terrain and the stunning visuals Turkey has to offer, we're not even sure how a place like this is even allowed to exist. Oh, and did we mention how cool the hot air balloons
