My apologies for the delay! Maybe one day I’ll finally realize that I need to start the whole process of picking these out well before the end of the year rolls around. I thought I’d be able to hammer it out right at the beginning of January, but between traveling and being busy with a bunch of other stuff, I never had the time to fully devote to sitting down and giving this the attention it deserves. So, here we are, damn near the end of February and we’re just now taking a look back on what I thought were…
Nicholas Soloninka sent his drone up to capture some rad aerial shots of Denver, Colorado’s new Ruby Hill Bike Park. There’s no riding in here but it gives you a really good overview of the place. If riding is what you want to see, you can check out an edit of Ted Van Orman putting some first tracks down on the place HERE.
And while we’re on the subject of Colorado, I may as well take the opportunity to bump this gem from the Centennial State back up to the top!
Ruby Hill is the latest on Colorado’s ever growing list of bike parks. Opening day is set for this Thursday, July 23rd, and after seeing this little sneak peek of Ted Van Orman putting down some of the first tracks, I think it’s safe to assume that there’s going to be a big turnout on opening day! South Platte River Drive and West Jewell Avenue in Denver, Colorado is where you want to head if you want to be a part of it.
This may as well be a Colorado trails scene report with all of the dudes ripping in this seven minute masterpiece cooked up by Josh Wendt, Chris Kulhanek and Ted Van Orman! Enough reading, hit play already!
Ted Van Orman may not be from Colorado, but he’s one of the first people I think about when trails in Colorado come to mind. I’m really hoping to see more from both him and the Colorado trails scene this season, but for now I’ll have to settle for taking a trip down memory lane back to this bonus section from Deluxe’s Part Deux video.
Happy New Year everyone! I hope you all aren’t too hungover from all the celebrating that was going on last night. Post are going to be a little slow for the next few days because the internet where I am is pretty spotty. I’ll be back up to speed next week and you can look forward to our annual roundup of the top ten trails web edits from the last year. All that said, here’s our first flashback post of 2016, and it’s a good one if I do say so myself! This coverage of the jams at Baker’s Acres…
It’s always a treat when Elliot Van Orman comes out a new edit! Here’s what he put together from the annual Pinke’s Trail Jam that went down in Michigan back in July. Glenn “Pinke” Skowronek sure does have a damn good thing going on up there! I definitely think a road trip is in order for next year’s jam.
Going with some classic Michigan trail riding for this week’s flashback. How rad was this place?!
Ted is the man!
