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.
