Places To Ride
Here are some pictures of me and my brother on one of the gnarlier trails in the Albuquerque South Foothills. Pictured are the infamous rocks atop the Knobbies No More Trail. A double-black-diamond trail, this is not the ideal trail to screw up on.
The photographer is our awesome brother Matthew, who is always ready to stand behind the lens for a cool shot. Anthony Holzmann (in the green helmet) and Paul Holzmann (in the orange helmet).
NEW ZEALAND: LEARNING TO JUMP AT AGE 55
At the age of 55, my bike buddy Paul Crichton and I decided to learn how to jump. We’re pretty good riders, but only if our wheels are firmly on the ground. We started with a small ramp on the lawn at home and slowly built it up. Riding a Scott Genius 29. To all you other middle-aged guys out there—you can do it!

LOCAL BIKE PARK
The local bike park (Mountain Creek Bike Park) just opened, but it’s slow-going with all the rain. I’m hoping to do more shooting this year. It’s just so hard when I can ride instead.

Hi, my name is Jefferson Stanley, and I live in Asheville, North Carolina. I have been biking for close to two years now and absolutely love the sport. This is a picture of me riding my Kona Process at Lake James State Park. The trails here are awesome and have plenty of variety. I love your magazine and enjoy getting to read it monthly.
