What are you doing for the next hour and six minutes? Nothing? Cool. Hang out and watch “Off the Beaten Path”, our adventure cycling film that, hopefully by the end of that 66 minutes, will have you wanting to get out of your chair and out exploring…
From desert dunes in Nevada to an ice tunnel under a glacier in Iceland, “Off the Beaten Path” showcases that we’re not limited to pavement or traditional dirt trails when it comes to cycling adventures.
It’s alive. Well, it’s almost Halloween, so that seemed appropriate. The extended trailer is now live and you can check it out below. We’re still revamping the site and we’ll have more photos and info about the film when that’s complete, but, until then, take a few minutes and enjoy watching the places that bikes allow us to go…

Ryan Jezek is all about bikes. And, that passion has rubbed off quite a bit on his family. Rather than just go out for bike rides together on weekends, Ryan and his brother Todd started building their own bikes in the garage and are about to launch a new a bike brand. The family that makes bikes together stays together? Stay tuned…
It’s pretty cool when two groups that may not have played too nicely together in the past get together and do something truly great. The recent work on Corral Trail in South Lake Tahoe, CA showcases the coming together of the mountain bike community – fostered by TAMBA (Tahoe Area Mountain Bike Association) and the US Forest Service to create mountain bike specific features for users of all abilities on public lands. Yeah, pretty cool.
As avid mountain bikers, we’re incredibly fortunate to have this in our backyard and we encourage you to come ride some laps. Until then, check out the story of how it all came together and see some action from the new features!
Carson Valley is a pretty amazing place…And, there’s no lacking in things to do there and in nearby Lake Tahoe. We’re helping them get the word out by producing a video series showcasing the winner of their Carson Valley Rider contest checking out all that Carson Valley has to offer. Here’s the first video in that series:
I’ve been a bit antsy of late with not quite enough snow to be hitting the backcountry but too much snow to take out one of my mountain bikes, so I decided to rent a Fat Bike from Sierra Ski and Cycle Works here in town and I gotta say, it was tough to bring it back. I felt like a little kid playing in the snow. And, after a couple of days on it, I started to realize how much potential Fat Bikes have – and not just on snow, it was great in mud and tacky dirt too. Fat Bikes are really bringing year-round mountain biking to just about every area.
Here’s a quick clip thrown together from the past couple of days riding solo (none of my friends have a Fat Bike – yet). I put a Panasonic LX7 on a Xsories bendy tripod to supplement the GoPro shots). So, nothing crazy for the production value (or the riding), but some nice views and some Fat Bike stoke. Check it out!
