Ride year round in southern utah: the dawn patrol

Monday, May 20th 2024

I roll up to the trailhead in the dark. The air isn’t cold but it feels pleasantly cool as I step out of the truck and begin to ready my gear for the ride. The parking lot is empty and I release the hounds to their own devices before swinging a leg over my bike, hitting start on the Garmin and heading up the hill.

MTB BIKING ESSENTIALS

The best part of mountain biking is the freedom to choose the distance, area, and difficulty of trail you want to ride.

Right in my own backyard

September 21, 2022

As a child, I often dreamt of riding my bike in the wispy pines of Whistler British Columbia, the sanotes found in the western desert of Mexico, or the staggering and green hilled ridges of the Italian Dolomite range. I wanted to travel the world with my bike and see what the world has to offer. Where could I feel the most free? Where could I truly experience the pure euphoric feeling known as ‘hero dirt’? I wanted it all. (read more)

September 15, 2022

Fall is in the air, which means it’s time for the Fall Tour of St George. The tour is always BIG FUN and bittersweet all at the same time. It’s BIG FUN because it is a very well-organized ride with awesome routes, breathtaking scenery, great food and awesome vibes. Bittersweet because it’s the last organized ride of the season for me.

how to hydrate on your ride

August 4, 2022

Everyone knows you can’t live without water. But do you know WHY we need water when we’re doing strenuous activities? All our bodies have an “optimal” temperature. As sweat evaporates from our skin, it removes heat from the body, but with that also comes a loss of body fluid. When working out or on a strenuous ride, we need to be hydrating our body and replacing the fluids we lose when we sweat. (read more)

Brian head odyssey course review

July 28, 2022

I’m both excited and a little bit nervous. The last time I rolled through here things were a bit rough. I like rough, but I’m rolling alone and not sure I want to tackle Dark Hollow solo at any real speed. I’ve heard that the trail was revamped and I’m hoping that it hasn’t been completely sanitized, but also that it they were able to fix some of the “issues” it used to have. (read more)

The Diverge versus the Crux: Which one should you get? 

June 28th, 2022

The grin on my face won’t stop and I don’t want it to. The dust building up on my legs and arms is indicative of the dry nature of our area, but also that it is going to be a good day. I’m pedaling up the Micro Loop in the Bear Claw Poppy Reserve for the first ride on my brand new gravel bike. So far it’s been a smooth, and despite the head wind, fast spin, but the downhill is....

what kind of mountain bike should i buy?

March 7th, 2022

Some people just do whatever the salesmen or their friends tell them, others rent a variety of bikes beforehand, and some just buy a bike that looks cool... (read more)

Aethos comp review

October 12th, 2021
