vicious cactus attacks mountain biker!

Immediately after landing in Arizona, I drove my trusty rental truck north to try out a trail that Rob Drew had told me about- Pass Mountain Trail.  I had little idea of what I should be expecting, but I did bring some pliers along!

Trail Intern: La Milagrosa in Tucson, AZ

Jeff Lenosky and his Trailboss series of videos are super fun – especially his episode of mountain biking La Milagrosa trail in Tuscon Arizona! “J-Lo” is not just a trials wizard- he helped usher in today’s world of progressive MTB street riding, laying down some SICK video parts in the original freeride films.  I had…

And honestly, these cross country bikes are very capable! My first “real” bike had even steeper geometry than this Ibis, and I remember…

Scariest jump ever!

I’ve wanted to send this cliff jump for ages now! When we first moved to town, we saw the jump, and I immediately thought to myself “hey self, would it be possible to send this on a bike?” Well, an idea is one thing, but actually executing it is often far more difficult! In this…
