MOROCCO

Atlas Mountains Berber Villages is a 6.3 kilometer moderately trafficked out and back trail located near Asni, Marrakesh-Tensift-El Haouz, Morocco that features a waterfall and is rated as moderate. The trail is primarily used for hiking and walking and is accessible year-round.

I attended a group bike ride in Morocco last November. We were extremely lucky to have great weather for a perfect ride. This photo was taken on the Atlas Mountains in the area of Imlil at a height of nearly 7000 feet. The friendliness and the hospitality of the locals was outstanding, and the trails with the overlooking view were absolutely magnificent.

MINNESOTA

Superior Hiking Trail Section from Haines Rd is a 3.6 mile lightly trafficked out and back trail located near Duluth, Minnesota that offers the chance to see wildlife and is rated as moderate. The trail is primarily used for hiking, trail running, and snowshoeing and is best used from May until November. Dogs are also able to use this trail but must be kept on leash.

After reading MBA for nearly 30 years, I thought it sure would be sick to open the pages and feel like a pro before my 40th birthday. Here are two shots of me on a Marin Wolf Ridge Pro, competing in the all-day, 12-stage Duluth Hard Enduro that is held each May in Duluth, Minnesota. Any rider who has not made it to the Midwest to check out all the trails the amazing city of Duluth has to offer really should take the time to check it out. At nearly 40 years old, I still look forward to each and every issue. Keep up the awesome work. It fuels so many dreams.

PISGAH NATIONAL FOREST

Pisgah National Forest makes up 500,000 acres in the mountains of western North Carolina. There are hundreds of miles of rugged, rocky and rooty trails. People from all over the world travel here to ride and are never disappointed. You won’t find any machine-cut flow trails here (those are only a few minutes away)! Just wild, techy goodness for those who love to shred.
