Switzerland: Epic Trails In The Shadow of the Matterhorn, by Lukas Keller

Deep in the valley of Zermatt, with views of the Gorner Glacier, the more than 13,000-feet-high Castor, Pollux, and Breithorn along with the 14,692-foot Matterhorn lies some of the best lift-assisted singletrack in the world.


Discovering Colombia, by Matt Hayes

The author spends 90 days in San Gil exploring the country’s vast network of camino reals, which makes for unbelievable mountain biking. He also helps build a pump track with a few locals and experiences some of the area’s legendary urban riding.


Riding the Forgotten Argentina Railroad, by Dan Milner

“It’s the most shitty looking, crappiest trail I have ever seen,” says Hans Rey, not mincing his words. We’re tired, hungry and cold and have found ourselves passing the night in the one-horse Argentinean border town of La Quiaca—a town that seems to exist solely to encourage travelers to leave. When an adventure starts like that you know it’s going to result in an amazing story. Follow along as a group of riders attempt to cross the country on a 100-year-old abandoned railroad line by mountain bike.
