Next Exit - Copper Harbor

Copper Harbor is the northernmost town on Michigan’s Upper Peninsula and might be considered the definition of “Off the beaten path.” However, to its population of barely over 100 year-round residents, that’s just one of the many factors they love about it, along with the tight-knit community, backdoor access to adventure and seriously stunning views of Lake Superior.

The mining and logging industries brought a decent crowd to the area throughout the 19th century, but once the resources fell off so did the population. What remained though were the logging roads and mining tracks, scars from the resource extraction that would eventually sprout area’s first singletrack. Back in the day, a crew of hardcore locals would embark on color tours, grueling rides (on fully rigid bikes) that connected old double tracks throughout the Peninsula, often 70 or 80 miles.

With that, the spark of mountain biking had ignited in Copper Harbor, and with the help of the Keewenaw Adventure Company and funding for paid trail building, it has become one of the area’s driving forces. Today, there’s over 35 miles of singletrack, making the most of the 500-vertical feet available, and the network has been ranked as one of IMBA’s Silver Level Ride Centers. All of this is proof that a passionate community can create an amazing riding experience with hard work and dedication—no matter how far off the path it may be.

From Deep Pow to Loam – Checking in the With Rocky Mountain Enduro Team

In the words of Jesse Melamed: “The season doesn’t start til June!” Maybe that’s why we’ve been seeing more of him in British Columbia’s bottomless pow than out on his bike – after all the man needed some rest after his domination of the 2020 EWS season. 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

Magical Mountain Biking in Turkey

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

But fear, like many obstacles, is a mental game. Pro mountain biker Remy Metailler walks us through how he manages fear. Metailler doesn't pretend to be superhuman, but rather provides some tips on how he manages fear when sending those crazy rock slabs. Some of his tips include walking the line and
