Whether on a new or old beat, trail blazing is an art form immersed in wild conquest of the unknown. Just as Lewis and Clark went great lengths to discover the richness of America, so does the fat-tire-freak make new tracks on rarely used paths in the endless pursuit of rediscovering remote lands.
Few things in life compare to the beauty of traveling for days on end through mountain landscapes on a bicycle. Even better if that bicycle is a mountain bike and those landscapes are rugged, wild, and removed from the coddling hands of civilization.
We need more back-of-beyond bike routes like this--places we can test ourselves, find true adventure, and rediscover what it means to be vigorously alive on this planet. -- Aaron Teasdale
