Michigan Meandering // Exploring the UP’s Best Singletrack

Venturing into the unknown is often a gamble, but when it pays off, it’s incredibly rewarding. Our plans to explore Michigan’s Upper Peninsula felt a bit like rolling the dice, as we’d heard whispers of surreal singletrack in the area, but without much of a plan or many contacts, we were operating off local advice—most often from people we met at bike shops or dive bars. It didn’t take us long to figure out that beta was better than anything we could find on the internet.

Joined by Eric Porter, we landed in UP country and started our tour de singletrack in Marquette before venturing east to Munising. Working our way back north, we continued to ride any network that was suggested, including Houghton, Hancock, Calumet and finally Copper Harbor. Our wager paid off, as we found exactly what we were looking for, but rather luck, it was all thanks to the locals.

Heli-Biking is Alive and Well in Canada

Heli-Biking is Alive and Well in Canada

Canada is a place where anything is possible, including getting heli-drops with your mountain bike. POV master Nate Hills visited Revelstoke’s Mount Cartier to see what this is all about, scoring a 7000-foot descent through the beautiful high alpine and lush forests of BC. The lesson? Forget the badass shuttle rig, find a buddy with a helicopter and go get after it.

The Swedes Have a Message For Us: Make Enduro Great Again

The Swedes Have a Message For Us: Make Enduro Great Again

The 2017 Åre Video Challenge gave us some pretty quality edits from the Far North. Videos were all shot and edited during the 5-day festival, all filmed mostly within the bike park. This year’s winners, the decidedly non-American Enduro Bro Team, gave us a classic: American flags, hats, and rowdy good times. All politics aside, the Swedes absolutely annihilate the bike park. Check out that Candide-style lift station line at the end.
