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.

One of the best parts of working on “Off the Beaten Path”  was getting out and exploring new places to ride with my dog, Emmie. Over the course of filming, I began to realize how many shots we had of “Emmie and Me”…so many, that a segment came together that wasn’t part of the original plan.

We’re doing premieres/screenings of “Off the Beaten Path” now and will announce plans for the full release soon, but, in the interim, we hope you enjoy watching “Emmie and Me”…

First Tracks was brought on to put together this quick turn-around, action-heavy edit showcasing the capabilities of Turner’s new RFX…

This was fun to shoot/put together, but I wish I’d gotten a chance to ride it! Iggy had perma-grin the whole time we were out there. After his first day on it, Iggy said, “this is the most fun bike I’ve ever ridden”. High praise from a former pro DH rider. And, this bike does more than just crush descents. At sub-28 pounds and with DW-Link suspension, this bike will get you some Strava PRs on the climbs too. Find out more at: Turner Bikes

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!
