Dan Atherton double black diamond ebike loop

Dan Atherton has this all time, super technical ebike enduro (e)xtravaganza double black diamond ebike loop near his Dyfi Bike Park in Northern Wales.

The tour came highly recommended by Danny MacAskill, so I had to give it a go. Usually the tour requires two batteries, but we used a car shuttle for two of the five of the uphill sections. The ride is about 3000m/9000ft vertical technical trails.

I think they will eventually offer it at Dyfi as a backcountry addition to the park. I rode my GT Bicycles e-Force with Shimano Ep8 (504w)

Roadtrip USA

Escaping Covid-19

by Carmen Freeman-Rey It was  March 11th 2020, Hans and I were on board a flight from LAX to London Heathrow with a plan to spend time in the UK. The plane doors were locked and passengers belted, as we waited to taxi when the Captain announced news of a travel ban for people coming from Europe into the U.S. At this point it didn’t include the U.K, but for how long? There were anxious rumblings from many passengers on board as permission to disembark was given people to those that wanted to. We had to make a decision fast, to stay on board or go, we chose to go. It turned out to be the right decision.

The amazing story of Derby and St. Helens

Tasmania 2  (2019)

Blue Derby and St. Helens, a seismic story about the power of a mountain biking nirvana.

Two seismic events hit the small town of Derby located in the north east of Tasmania; the first was a dam bursting in 1929 releasing a torrent of water that rapidly sluiced through the town washing away houses and lives. The second colossal époque was and continues to be mountain biking. Who would have thought that a small mining town decimated by tragedy, then deserted by big business could have a renaissance of such magnitude. This re-birth did not come about by accident, but rather by progressive thought, planning, determination, sheer dogged mindedness and genius trail builders.
