2019 MTBA Australian Fat Bike National Championships – by Simon Rimmer

Fat Bikes might have been crafted for the snowfields of the northern hemisphere, but they’re as equally at home on loose trails, muddy tracks, and sandy beaches……….and that’s where they’ve captured the attention of Aussie riders ‘cause we’ve got plenty of incredible beaches surrounding our Great Southern Land. Arguably one of our best beaches is […]

Afterglow Lake Resort – Phelps WI – Northwoods Paradise

I was drawn to Afterglow Lake Resort by their incredible social media photo-stream. The intense sunset photography made me think back to shooting Kodachrome slide film and spoke to one of my life-long passions (photography).

Coast to Coast Bikepacking Michigan’s Mitten – By Andy Amstutz

Not many people drive across Michigan.  It’s not on the way to anywhere. It’s the anti-Iowa in the way that I’ve driven through Iowa a dozen times to get to a destination but never had the pleasure of staying overnight.  Michigan, like Florida and Maine, is a destination location, unless one is driving to Cuba, New […]
