Single Speed Nationals!

Melrose will be hosting its first mountain bike nationals event, and it’s a goodie! The Single Speed National Championships, where racing is secondary to shenanigans and carbo loading comes in a bottle.

What Did You Get For Christmas?

What Did You Get For Christmas? Hurricane got 5 new miles of purpose built mountain bike trail in the Quail Lake Reservoir area, bringing the total to 19 miles thus far. OTE Hurricane has been designing and building trail in this area for 5 years and has created a master plan for the entire area. OTE Hurricane took on the project when Doug Wilson, an acquaintance of ours from the Water Conservancy District (WCD), contacted us and needed someone to design and build trails in the area around Quail Lake Reservoir. In order to meet the requirements that the  Bureau of Land Management (BLM) set forth in the RMP, recreation trails needed to be built to keep the land permanently deeded to the WCD. Rhythm & Blues was the first trail to be built with volunteers. This trail comes at you fast. So put your saddle down and be ready […]

Sedona Trail Stoke! Our Favorites

I recently read an article in Peleton magazine titled, “My Favorite Roads.”  The author went on to write about some the roads he’s ridden around the world that have left lasting memories for him and capture the essence of riding a road bike.  The article inspired me to do something very similar, but to write about some of my favorite trails here in this adventureland. HiLine This trail challenges me every time I ride it.  The first climb warms up my lungs and I am greeted by a view of the ridge on the other side of this small valley, Bell Rock and Courthouse Butte.  I can’t look away for too long because the trail is narrow and the exposure to my right has its consequences.  My concentration is tested all the way along the ridge to the view point, where I take a dog-leg right turn and descend down […]
