Cyclists' Access Revoked to Parts of The Kingdom Trails
@OllyR: I tend to believe it's not the "Monster Bro's" that are the problem. They tend to welcome every opportunity to stop and take a breather. In my experience, it's more the lycra-clad, garmin-wearing, strava segment-chasing crowd who won't yield the trail under any circumstance because they are in "zone 4", and who are chasing Strava-glory. nothing else matters to this group. I'm no saint myself, and I can (evidently) fall into the trappings of tribalism, but I try to be respectful and friendly most of the time. I think that is the attitude in most places, most of the time, but for whatever reason, Kingdom seems to attract people with me-first attitudes. I wonder if it isn't a little bit because people pay to have access, and therefore feel entitled to an expected experience? The mix of private landowners offering up their land for free and paying customers might not be the most sustainable mix? who knows... just speculating.

Video: Rob Warner and Finn Iles Meet Cowboys and Shamans and Ride Ecuador's Highest Volcano
Was there for a week a year ago with a group of buddies. it was awesome. there is so (so, so) much riding there. this didn't even brush the surface! those were two awesome rides though... I wonder if there's more in the archives? At any rate, I recommend Ecuador as a riding destination to anyone thinking of going. Having a guide that can take you where conditions are good at the time is very useful. And taking the time to do some acclimatization rides is also critical...

10 of the Best Handlebar Mounted Bike Lights Ridden & Rated
I'm going to have to respectfully, but strongly, disagree with your statement in your disclosure about preferring a strong bar mounted light over a head light. In my experience, I want my helmet light to provide a strong, tight spot that illuminates far in the distance, where I need to be looking when riding at speed. The bar mount does indeed provide contrast and depth, especially in the medium to fore-ground. But the crucial part, that took me a few years to realize, is that if the bar mount is too strong, your eyes adjust to that amount of light, lessening the effectiveness of the spot in the distance. My current setup is a 2000+ lumens spot on the helmet, and an 1100 or so lumens flood on the bar. The spot is aimed where my eyes are focused, and the flood pretty much supports my peripheral vision. I have been running this setup for about 6 years now after experimenting with all sorts of other variations, and this is what allows me to ride at night pretty much as fast as in the summer (provided conditions are similar).

First Ride: The 2020 Norco Sight Has an All-Mountain Focus
nevermind, went on the "build your ride" page and found the spec. Boost. (as expected). that said, the Shimano build spec page pulls up the SRAM build spec page. Oops.

Endura Announces MT500 Freezing Point Jacket & Trousers for Winter Riding
@ZappBrannigan: I don't like riding with waterproof pants when it's properly cold. they get crinkly, and they don't breathe well. when the moisture builds up inside the pants, you get wet and clammy, which is not a good thing when it's cold out. better to let the moisture escape. that's been my experience anyways.
