Summer is here and it’s normally time for us mountain bikers to take over the ski resorts and skid up villages around the globe as we migrate to new lands in search of epic trails and good times! The 2020 summer has presented many of us with challenges we’ve never seen before, and to be honest, we weren’t even sure if we’d be able to get Season 2 underway due to all the COVID-19 restrictions. More than ever, we know that time is short and resources are few when it comes to picking your next bike park adventure so we’re hoping to deliver some valuable recon information for your crew’s next trip. Whether that’s you and ten of your bros looking to get wild for a bachelor party, or a family looking for off-mountain activities, family friendly fun and a little bit of riding mixed in, we’re hoping to give you as much valuable info as we can.
More than just a full trail report, our bike park review tour is going to look way beyond the park boundaries to help give you the info you need to truly consider what park will be the best bet for your next trip. Our crew will be diving deep into the local scene at each stop. We’ll be reporting on overall affordability, local restaurants and diners, nightlife, and options for lodging or camping as well as non-biking activities like boating and zip-lining. Buckle up, it’s time for a ride.
Full disclosure: We’ve been fortunate enough to get some very gracious sponsors for our trip and they’re helping us achieve this dream of reviewing bike parks for our fans. Along with helping us cover expenses like gas and meals along they way, two of our biggest supporters have asked us to do some fun product giveaways and scavenger hunts at random stops and bike parks all summer long! Be sure to follow @ridecncpts, @Maxxisbike and @Risebrewing as we’re going to be stashing Ride Concepts shoes, Maxxis tires and Rise Brewing cold brew coffees at parks along the way. If you want to get a jump start on the giveaways, see our detailed travel schedule and meet up with us for rides, dinner parties and more, visit our Patreon page. Along with knowing that your helping support out grassroots endeavors, you’ll get exclusive behind the scenes access, swag you can’t find anywhere else and plenty more perks!
As always, we love getting feedback from the Pack so feel free to leave any comments, suggestions on parks you’d like to see us review or aspects of each park you’d like to see us add to the review list.
Thanks for tuning in and we hope to see you on the trails!
