The word “epic” has been entirely overused in recent days, and especially in mountain biking circles. It seems like every time I ask a rider how his ride or the trail was, the classic response is either “It was epic dude!” or “Man, it was so gnarly!”

As many of you may know, I spent almost two months this summer traveling the nation and riding my mountain bike. One of my main goals when I was out west this summer was to ride any of the trails on our top 10 best mountain bike trails list that I hadn’t ridden yet.
Our list is constantly changing based on user ratings and other factors computed by our ranking algorithm, and some of the trails I went out of my way to ride this summer are no longer even ranked in the top 10. However, a few weeks ago I went and took another look at the list and realized that I’ve now ridden the 10 best mountain bike trails in the world, as ranked by Singletracks.com!
I thought it would be interesting to take a look at what my initial impressions were of these 10 trails, a photo that I took out on the trail (if any), and what I really think of these trails now that I can look back on them with the clarity that retrospection provides.

In the initial “On Test” blog post I mentioned all of the modifications that Airborne has made to v2.0 of the Goblin based on what they learned from their experiences with v1.0. While some of these changes were large and others were small, when added together they equaled a very different ride out on the trail!

If ever there was an under-acclaimed trail system, a network of trails that flies way, way below the radar, it is the Liberty Mountain Trail System in Lynchburg, Virginia.

Still, one of the main bikes in my stable is the original version of the Airborne Goblin, and I use that bike to test many of the products and components I get in for review. When I heard that Airborne was releasing the latest rendition of the Goblin this fall, I knew that I had to check out the updates!
I’m pleased to announce that I was one of the first people to throw my leg over a production Goblin, so the scoop doesn’t get any fresher than this:

Bent Creek has been on my ride wishlist for a very long time. I’ve heard so many rave reviews of this trail system that my mouth started to water at the mere whisper of the words “Bent Creek,” but I had yet to taste the sweetness for myself. Until now.

Carrying an iPhone is just so much easier, and so I was on the lookout for the perfect GPS app to log my forays into the wilderness. I’ve tried just about everything on the market, from MapMyRide to Strava to AllSport LE… and many more. Finally, after a couple of email nudges from one of the Runtastic marketing people, I gave the Mountain Bike PRO Cycling Computer App (powered by Runtastic) a try… and I’ve fallen in love!

This summer my wife and I undertook a road trip of epic proportions. Traveling from Georgia to California and stopping at many places along the way, our travels lasted for almost two months and involved about 600 miles of dirty singletrack under my mountain bike tires and about 7,000 miles of pavement under the tires of my Toyota T100 pickup truck. Such an epic journey called for a reliable bike rack, and the Yakima Doubledown Ace 4 proved to be just such a rack.
