Excited by the prospect of a number of creative projects currently bubbling away for Ride Guide, including the long overdue epic ride guide, I have been conscious of the type and amount of content being posted and want to have a decidedly structured approach for 2013. Taking stock of the more popular posts in 2012, the ride guides like this one, and the get out and ride video series posts have certainly struck a chord with you.
The overall site for 2013 will continue to deliver ride guides from mountain bike destinations that offer the AM/ Trail rider a positive ride experience. These ride guides will have a distinct local Australian flavour, but will continue to expand into international destinations.
In addition to the ride guides will be carefully selected product posts. Featured products that enhance the ride or mountain bike travel experience. This will not be an AM bike shootout (there are already plenty of bike bibles to glean that information from), but more an in-depth review of product that I or individuals that I trust, have used, specifically for the trail/AM rider.
I will also continue with sourcing inspiring video content for AM/Trail riders in the hope to inspire more of you to find that inspiration to get out ride.
You may also notice a slight branding tweak to the site that will be rolled out over the next couple of months, a refresh for 2013 if you will.
Thanks again for you support in 2012 and look forward to ramping up the content in 2013, as we search for singletrack!
It is great to see that there are quality mtb videos already coming through for 2013. Please find below 3 videos that caught my attention this January.
You Yangs – Victoria, Australia
Looking forward to some quality videos from LCS Visual in 2013. One of the best Australian based mtb videographers that I have seen, shot at the You Yangs, near Melbourne, Australia.
North Wales, UK
Impressive AM riding out of Wales. A visual feast from both a riding and edit perspective.
2012 Trans Provence, France
The highlight reel from one of the new enduro events, which has captured the mtb community’s attention. Whilst still in its infancy, the Trans Provence has already become a must ride event on many riders bucket list.
