Actual Mountain Biking is Finally Opening Up.
It’s been a crazy-wet spring. While winter was oddly warm, spring has been unusually wet. This has kept the high-mountain trails snowy and muddy for a long, long time – and may mean we’re going to have a massive fire season. We hope that’s not the case. But for now, Chase and I rode up Jenny’s Trail and came back down Loose Moose while playing with slow motion – it just makes everything look so dramatic.

How We Capture Video
We use a GoPro Hero 3 (but any action camera would work) attached to a mini-tripod. But not just any mini-tripod. A Pedco Ultrapod.
We’ve been using this same Pedco Ultrapod since 1994. It’s small enough to fit anywhere, and it’s flexible enough to attach it whereever you want to get the shot. One of the tripod legs is pointy so you can jam it into the dirt, plus the velcro strap allows you to affix the tripod to anything from tree’s, bushes, barbed wire, fence-posts and even Carsonite trail signs.
