September Rider Photos: You’ve Got To Have Friends

While the largest number of images we receive at Trail Mix are shots of lone bikes leaned up against everything from tree stumps to battleships, sharing mountain biking with friends is one of the true pleasures our sport has to offer. Here’s proof. PLUSH ACCOMMODATIONS     Our group went on a hut-to-hut for three days […]

August’s Rider Photos Have Gone To The Dogs

We all have stories of being chased by a dog while out on a ride. It is a drag that such a small number of ankle bitters have to ruin it for all the great dogs out there. This month, Trail Mix’s focus is on the four-legged friends who only chase mountain bikers to keep […]

July’s Rider Photos That Made The Cut: Is Your Shot Here?

There are states with larger mountain biking populations, states with more miles of singletrack, and states with higher peaks, but the numero uno state for generating epic mountain bike photos is Utah.   TWIN SISTER Many who visit “The Goose” (Gooseberry Mesa, Utah) are not familiar with her twin sister, “Little Creek Mesa.” My brother had a […]

Time To Smell The Flowers

Sometimes during the best of rides you just have to stop and smell the bluebonnets, at least in Texas. McAlister Park in San Antonio was the setting for this shot of sweet singletrack winding through a field of bluebonnets in full bloom.

Crested Beauty

Chilly water, but well worth it! I instantly fell in love with the riding at Crested Butte. I used to think you had to go to the Swiss Alps to get views this beautiful, but not so. The only hard part was getting accustomed to the altitude. This is my boyfriend again. Athena Kraus El […]

Global Warming?

There certainly has been a “climate” change in the Willamette Valley this year.  Here are shots of the 7:00 a.m. “old men” ride this morning (April 19!).  Snow level at 500 feet (madness), and there was an inch or more on top of McCulloch. 1650 feet of climb was worth it as we road single […]

Dust In The Wind

Taken in Kamloops, BC, at Race the Ranch. With the high temperatures and lack of moisture in the air, this racecourse soon turned into a dusty disaster, and many parts of the trail were pitted with bomb holes invisible to the racer until it was too late. Luckily for me, I was the first one […]

Decade Of Crashing

      I took this sequence 10 years ago when we were first starting to ride in Moab. Having found myself in this exact situation the week before on Slickrock trail, I positioned myself to catch the action. This is my friend Eric Anderson. “It’s just like falling in snow,” has been an ongoing […]

Bad Line Choice

Here’s a shot of me after a tumble on Porcupine Rim in Moab, UT.

The Last Drop-Off You’ll Ever Ride

No, I didn’t huck the ledge. I was out there on business and had the bike in the car “just in case.” It rained all night and I almost decided not to ride, but the urge prevailed, and I had a beautiful morning. Pretty much had the place to myself. The trail is Steve’s Loop […]

Bottom Bracket Cleaning

My son-in-law Jason took this photo of me navigating through some early season snowmelt at Rampart Reservoir (8,900 feet up in the Pike National Forest). A wet spring brought the lake several feet higher, and left Jason, my other son-in-law Travis and I facing some very chilly water crossings. Tim Sanford Colorado Springs, Colorado GET […]
