Chapter One of the five-part short film Cold Rolled: Marquette Michigan's Snow Bike Route, an action documentary from Clear & Cold Cinema, Salsa Cycles and TravelMarquetteMichigan.com that will explore the history and progression of winter cycling culture in the adventure-loving Lake Superior harbor town of Marquette, Michigan.
Marquette's Noquemanon Trails Network has nearly perfected equipment and techniques used to launch its Snow Bike Route, a 15-mile winter singletrack developed for fat tire bikes. The fast narrow trail features flowy terrain, steep descents and large bermed turns. It's believed to be the first trail of its kind--but more importantly, it's pretty fun.
Chapter One features riding along an ungroomed section of trail that is often packed by foot traffic from Marquette's active population. This section of trail follows the Dead River and passes under a leaky water pipe that forms curtains of ice in the winter months.

Two weeks, one photographer, one videographer, one bike designer, the ACRE crew, and endless amounts of single track in the Alps. All summed up in this video and the WANDER book with photography by Dan Barham.
As the son of a Swiss dairy farmer, René Wildhaber is used to enjoying breathtaking views from alpine peaks. However, not many mountain men have enjoyed the wide horizons of this world-class mountain biker, who has won races on four continents and has done adventure journeys all around the globe.
