Arkansas

The OZ trails in Northwest Arkansas have been high on my list of spots to ride for awhile now and it definitely didn't disappoint. Huge thanks to all the awesome locals who showed me a solid time while in the area!






Oklahoma

From Northwest Arkansas I made my way about four hours south to the little town of Poteau, Oklahoma to meet up Travis Estus, Joshua & Stihl Snyder and their awesome family! Little did I know Poteau is home to Cavanal which is the world's highest hill. After a quick rip down Cavanal Travis, Josh, Stihl and I made our way out to O-Rock which is regarded as some of Oklahoma's best mountain biking.






Texas

I started out my time in Texas with a rip through the new park in Taylor with my old pal Jeremiah Work. From there we made our way to the legendary 9th Street dirt jumps in Austin to meet up with Roth Smith and the boys. From there we made our way about an hour and a half outside of Austin to ride Reverlry Peak Ranch with Jeff Kendall Weed and then finished it off at Texas's brand new bike park, Spider Mountain with Eric Clifton and the Team Trail Party crew. Big thanks to everyone I crossed paths with in Texas for the good times!




The final two States on my 48 State Road Trip are New Mexico & Arizona. You can follow the adventure through my Instagram & Youtube channel with a new video every week.

Cheers from the road!

 Another awesome one AT. I got out of grad school at UT in 1995 and still didn't know what an MTB was and remember going by the 9th Street DJ's thinking those dudes were there most bad a$$ dudes ever.......great to see it still doing well!

 Thanks man! It's so cool that place has been around forever! It was always a big goal of mine to make it out there one day and I'm stoked I finally got the chance! Such a cool riding scene in the greater Austin area!

 Can't say enough good things about this video series. Take away all the sh*t/trash talking by keyboard courage warriors out there and you realize that no matter where you go, you can always find something cool and fun to ride with great locals to show you the way. Keep up the good work!

 Thanks so much! I couldn't agree more about being able to find riding and cool locals wherever you go! The MTB community is the best!

 Obviously got the free time & cash for these sort of epic roadtrips so may as well splash out and fly over to hawaii and drive up to alaska? Get all 50??

 Great vids with good angles, music, and vibe. Doesn't hurt that I've enjoyed many of these trails myself. Nice work!

 The trails at O' Rock are certainly epic back-country riding, and he rocks are big, square and plentiful. I was glad to see them highlighted! Nice work.

 Yeah, O' Rock was awesome and definitely some rough terrain. Oklahoma was my 45th State and was the first place I got a flat tire haha
