The third installment of the 4-part web series From Where We Stand takes us to the trails of beautiful Mount Penn, flanking the east side of Reading, Pennsylvania. Reading isn’t especially well known for being a mountain bike destination times are a changin’ and the community that has been developing there for decades is ready to show the world what they’ve been up to. Dane Clay is the trail coordinator and one of the men behind the trails and the community development and alongside world cup racer Neko Mulally and his younger brother and fellow pro downhiller Logan, we explore some of the steepest, gnarliest and most fun trails in all of Pennsylvania!

‘From Where We Stand’ – Episode 2


Our second of four episodes is here and Oneonta is ready for you to feast your eyes upon it’s lush forests, perfect dirt and amazing rocks.

Situated just west of the Catskill mountains in central New York, Oneonta is quickly becoming a mountain biker’s dream town. Five minutes from downtown sees riders in the middle of 40 miles of singletrack, and that number is growing. Two universities in town have brought ample amounts of volunteerism to the trails and the talent being produced is starting to command attention.

Sam Brown-Shaklee is one of the premier riders from the region and alongside his good friend and fellow upstater Paul Dotsenko, we get to see just how fast and fun these trails can really be!

‘From Where We Stand’ – Episode 1


There’s little doubt the mountain bike industry is heavily focused on the West Coast, but what about the rest of us back east? There is no shortage of amazing trails and beautiful scenery, so why don’t we see it represented in elite-level mountain bike filmmaking?FatTireFests is here with a response: a new series highlighting the best of the “other” coast.

The first of four installments takes place at Mountain Creek Bike Park in beautiful Vernon, New Jersey. A legendary freeride and downhill spot, we wanted to take a slightly different approach to filming and riding there.  Jeff Lenosky, Matt Miller, Harlan Price and George Ryan are featured along with Brice Shirbach on some of the rockiest and gnarly terrain the east coast has to offer its riders.
