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.

VIDEO: Gee Atherton Takes The Worst Crash of His Life

A few weeks ago, we got news that Gee Atherton sustained some serious injuries in a mountain bike accident, including a broken femur, leg, ribs, nose, eye socket, and a collapsed lung. When the injuries are that bad, the crash was surely a gnarly one. Luckily, Gee is already well on the way to a full recovery from his injuries, and put together this short video sharing the details of what happened that day. He was filming for a new Ridgeline edit, got bounced off line and tumbled hundreds of

​VIDEO: This Red Bull Hardline POV Might Make You Poop Your Pants

Hot Take: Course builder Dan Atherton (the mad scientist of freeride) is giving Red Bull Rampage a run for its money when it comes to designing the straight-up scariest mountain bike competition on the planet. Red Bull Hardline is no secret, but watching the first POV previews of the Welsh course, like this one from Bernard Kerr are truly puckering. Somehow, the already impossibly gnarly course got even more terrifying this year, with insane tech sections, a few truly massive jumps, and World

Video: Why Handbuilt MTB Trails Are Just The Best

For some, building mountain bike trails is an escape. For others, it’s a way to express artistic creativity in an unlikely medium. Most mountain bikers can understand that shaping dirt, wood, rocks, and everything in between to create a three-dimensional space for flow is something that is easy to appreciate: when a trail is built right, it just feels Shimano and Mark Matthew’s latest short celebrates the art of trailbuilding as it’s known in Cumberland, BC. The trail in question isn’t some
