Getting hurt is, unfortunately, an eventuality with mountain biking. For some reason, hurtling ourselves down obstacle-riddled hills as fast as possible is inherently dangerous. But for the most part, an injury doesn’t scare us away: where others would back away, we push forward. Injury drives us to work hard for recovery and motivates us to be better. We have a tricky relationship with injury. But if the worst thing about getting hurt is the time away from our bikes that we’ll never get back, then the silver lining is that feeling when we finally get back on the horse.

Newfoundland; a massive raw slab surrounded by the frigid North Atlantic waters. An island that defines east coast Canadian culture, where lobster traps and small town bars sit amongst incredible scenic vistas.
But as beautiful as it is, there’s a side of Newfoundland that doesn’t show up on the postcards that – for a small but growing group of passionate riders – truly defines what makes this place so special. A single dirt road runs through a small town, nonexistent cell reception deep within an old logging trail, and ancient rock formations with jagged seams that dominate the landscape.
Ride the rock deep across the island to discover the trails and tales that define this remote island's budding riding culture and the whatever-it-takes dedication to create a community that will last for generations.
