Hot enough for you? This past summer set all kinds of crazy heat records, and it is one we all want to forget. So, Trail Mix could feature riders on snow-covered trails to cool you off, but we are pitching you a curveball and keeping the furnace on high.
WARM ALL YEAR
Warm California desert around and above Palm Springs.
Palm Springs, California
The highlight of spending two years in Turkey was the frequent mountain bike trips to Cappadocia (site of the 2007 European Mountain Bike Championships). The landscape is so unique and the flowing singletrack is so perfect; it felt like we were in another world.
The views outside of Las Vegas are to die for. While riding Bone Shaker (a.k.a. Bone Breaker), I captured August Ryan hitting a 6-foot jump, which he landed perfectly. Red Rock Canyon is in the background.
Las Vegas, Nevada
KNOW WHEN TO FOLD ‘EM
I was in Vegas for work but had free mornings before the meetings started. Connected with McGhie’s Outpost and guide Bobby for a 2.5 hour ride in Red Rock Canyon (just 30 minutes from the strip). What a blast! Stay and play at its best.
Mississauga, Ontario, Canada
HOT TIME IN CHILE
About to take in the Valle de Luna in San Pedro do Atacama, Chile. The sunset was well worth it. Great end to a great afternoon of riding.

My brother’s birthday present to me: a trip to Thunder Mountain and Gooseberry Mesa, Utah. You know a better brother in this world?
