Inspired to Ride
By Canyon Bicycles
Pro mountain bike riders Luca Cometti and Peter Jamison seek inspiration to create—deep in the woods of Highland Mountain Bike Park.
Where does your inspiration come from?
The glow of the evening sun?
Native curves of the earth?
Nature’s aggressive behavior?
Or is it shapes in the dirt?
Reflections of the world in its waters?
It seems it’s found the perfect balance
Are these forces there for us to be inspired?
If so, how do we express ourselves?
With two wheels and a sensor—this is our expression
Creative forces presence in life
And aren’t we all after a bit more of that?
The earth and the mind can be loud
The slash of a corner
The strike of a root
Or the pop of a lip—can make things go silent.
For just enough time
For us to forget about everything
But what is right in front of us
At the end of the day
Are we ever content?
Does the boundary of creativity ever end?
Or are we already searching?
For the next source of satisfaction
When that imagination runs out
So does our existence

Mountain Bike Action is a monthly magazine devoted to all things mountain biking (yes, that’s 12 times a year because we never take a month off of mountain biking). It has been around since 1986 and we’re still having fun.
