[:en]

Number 10. Bring a Cowbell – Who would have thought?

Vertical Kilometre – The format is simple: competitors charge up steep mountains climbing 1000m over a course usually no longer than 5km.

This September I was in the Highlands of Scotland for the Glen Coe Skyline weekend. This first article about the weekend for Red Bull was an SEO friendly, quick turn around round-up of this popular new event.

[:en]Did you know there are 429km of backcountry MTB magic to be ridden in Canada? The lion’s share of the Great Divide MTB route is in the USA, but everyone who’s ridden it knows the best bit is really in Canada! 

This Spring and Summer if you are at a race anywhere in the East of Canada, it’s likely you will receive a copy of Get Out There magazine. You can read about riding through the only uninhabited valley in Southern Canada, see my shots of when it gets snowy and get a feel for riding the sanctuary for misbehaving bears! Alternatively you can read online right now…here’s a link straight to the article. Happy trip planning!
