This is the winter edition of city trails. This time I thought as most bikers switch to cyclocross bikes then so would I.....only I decided I'd push the limits of man and machine once again.....I'm told I'm too old to be doing this (about to turn 40), but I say age is just a number and anyone can be inspired to push themselves to another level...So sit back and enjoy my latest rendition of what bike riding means to me, and if you are motivated to try and hit that trail feature you've never done before, or that skinny that terrifies you, or if it just opens your eyes to the possibilities, then my job was well done.. Ride on my friends!
Super massive thanks to Wilson Hale at richmondbicyclestudio.org for letting me use his Jake the snake........
At Kona, it’s all about the groms. That’s where the love starts. And if you start it off with serious fun, big confidence and incredible durability, the love grows deep enough to last a lifetime. It's the reason why we offer one of the most diverse, performance-oriented and beautifully put together collections of kids’ bikes on the market, featuring plush downhillers, cross-country speedsters, singlespeed dirt jumpers, awesome graphics, and different colors for both boys and girls.
We follow the Kona Team through the trials and tribulations of the biggest race of the year, the 2014 Mountain Bike World Championships in Hafjell, Norway. Starring rising Men's Elite DH ripper Connor Fearon, and one of the fastest XCO racers in North America, Spencer Paxson, we go behind the scenes to witness what goes into facing the world's best: from instant coffee to Vegemite, and all the hard miles in between.
On any given weekend during late summer through to early winter, cyclocross racers of all ages gather to test their mettle through mud and frozen grass, up and over obstacles, from Europe to North America and beyond. Kona has always loved cyclocross racing, from the camaraderie to the challenge, and of course, the unadulterated fun. As a testament to that passion, we follow three Kona cross racers from age 9 to 33. Two racers from Rad Racing NW, one of the top youth development cycling programs in the U.S., to Kona Team rider Helen Wyman, one of the top female cross racers in the world. For us, it's not only about creating bikes for future champions, but also inspiring a love for cycling that lasts a lifetime.
