The Back Forty: Rediscovering Adventures Hidden in Our Own Backyard

It’s easy to overlook our home trails and local haunts when there are so many exciting and exotic places to travel with our bikes. Take it from Casey Brown who typically spends her bike season trotting around the globe for competitions and film projects. She’s lucky if she gets a few weeks at home to explore. But last year was different for her. With travel and events suddenly put on pause, Brown found herself presented with a unique opportunity to stay home and see what her home province had to offer. Joined by pals Micayla Gatto and Georgia Astle, the trio hit the road with hopes of exploring British Columbia and the Yukon’s beautiful mountain bike communities. All around their adventures made for one hell of a road trip that wasn’t all that far from home.

Shred, Eat Gelato, Repeat: The Gehrig Twin’s Italian Training Program

There are a lot of perks to mountain biking in Italy. The terrain varies from fast flow trails to steep tech, the views are breathtaking all around, and of course, there’s Italy’s greatest gift to the world, gelato. Well, there’s also pizza, pasta, and you can’t forget about the cheese. Lucky for the EWS racers, five of the nine EWS race stops are in Italy this season, meaning that a fresh gelateria will always be nearby.

Ripping around on downhill bikes doesn’t always need to happen between the race tape while the clock is running – in fact, it’s usually way more fun when you’re just out there tearing up loamy singletrack in the woods. Vancouver Island’s Kendall McLean knows that feeling all too well – turns out he’s a bit of a loam connoisseur himself. Basically, all we’re trying to say is that his riding makes us want to fire up the shuttle rig and get a few laps in
