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 […]

Tahoe Trail Conditions

South Lake Tahoe Trail Report: Trails in South Tahoe are melting out rapidly!! Its mountain bike season! Corral Trail is open all the way up and down, no trees, no mud, just awesome. Armstrong Connector is also open and snow free. However the upper flat portion is not quite ready. Sidewinder is running like summer with only a tree or two in the way. Cold Creek Trail is open and clear all the way up to the lower rock slab (mid way point where trail is closest to road) Van Sickle is clear well over a third of the way up from the bottom Tahoe Mountain is also clear and dry. We are open and here to help you have greatness.. Lets Ride!!!

Melrose Riding Adventures

‘The hills don’t seem as steep or as daunting as they did on my first ride,’ I think to myself as I shift my ass to the nose of my saddle, swat flies from my face and keep my eyes on the crest of the hill.  The climbs here are longer than what I am used to.  The first day that I rode, I huffed and I puffed my way up the hills and even had to walk up part of one.  Two weeks later now and I find those same climbs to be fun for their terrain transitions from dirt up onto a rock ledge and different turns as they wind their way through the farm land. The narrow tracks here demand my attention at all times.  There have been many moments where my wheels have strayed from the dirt onto the long grasses that flank these tracks and […]

Interbike Tradeshow 2015

Each year in September the bike world descends on Las Vegas for the annual Interbike show, the largest bicycle tradeshow in North America, held at the Mandalay Bay convention center. Over The Edge was there representing with members from Fruita, Hurricane, Sedona, and Tahoe – We had Mike, Jason, and Ian from Sedona there. Besides checking out the latest and greatest for 2016 bikes and components, and getting a feel for future bike industry trends, the show is really about the people. It’s about being friends with the people we do business with – seeing them face to face for once, shaking hands, having a laugh, and drinking a beer together. It’s really the only reason I go to the show anymore, as most of the buying is done earlier in the year now, and pictures of all the new stuff is online before the show anyways. One of the special […]

The bike skills station is almost complete – again near the caravan park. Everyone can test their skills on the intermediate […]
