Video: Trail Riding with Neko Mulally in Pisgah
My home trails!! Love to see Black getting shredded like this. It's definitely how I think I look when I ride it.

Pinkbike Poll: How's the Riding Scene Where You Live?
Everything here gets blown up on instagram quickly. The local rangers do a great job with reporting trail conditions on social media, this has the negative effect of driving traffic to certain areas. It's really hard on the weekends. I'm lucky enough with my schedule where I can have two hours in the middle of the day to ride on a random Tuesday. Trying to use Apex on a Saturday morning at 10 is just brutal these days. My favorite saying-- "YOU are traffic."

Pinkbike Poll: How's the Riding Scene Where You Live?
I grew up in Cedar Mountain, NC, right next to Dupont State Forest (before they called it that, and it was the actual Dupont chemical plant that we used to go poach rides from after dark). The original trail network there was maintenance and access roads with some cuts up and down for ease. Asheville/Brevard has changed a WHOLE lot, but I think it's for the better. You'll find that many of the natives fall into two groups. The ones born in the 20s/30s, when that place was just starting to get discovered, and born in the 50s/60s, where they've been here their whole life but they probably don't make a living in the industry there, unless it's telecom, tourism, or automotive (south of the border in SC). I've seen the trails change from a "just cut enough" sort of maintenance to an honestly beautiful trail network with signage, safety, and enough rowdiness for anyone. Of course the crowds are bigger in the parking lots now. Of course the hotels around town (although the number of rooms has gone up, so has the pricing) are busy, of course there are people making this their vacation spot. Is that bad? My family's land in the area has gone up in value, there are new restaurants, bars, stores, There's a whole new outlook for the town. There used to be a massive paper plant here called Ecusta. They recently made all that land the factory used to sit on a Superfund cleanup site, and it's being returned to the national forest around it once it's healthy again. There's a focus for the future of the area as a tourism hub rather than just a retirement town now, and I personally love it. "you can never go home again", right? I'm on board with growth. I'll add that I'm typing this from the Front Range of Colorado, and I totally understand what happens when a massive amount of people travel somewhere, even temporarily, without the infrastructure to support it.

Rebecca Rusch Parts Ways With Niner Bicycles
Met her in downtown Leadville one year, she gave some pretty amazing advice that transcended bikes after I had a big fat DNF at the 100. Amazing woman, wish her the best for the future of her career.
