First up, a maximumly mad attack of the trails by a unicyclist in “Mad Max: Muni Road” by Kris Home Unicycles. Then some sweet bike packing and pack rafting action with Shayne Khajehnoori of the Blackburn Rangers, solid shreds by Canfield Brothers, a plea for support from IMBA, and some trail antics by Northwave riders/testers. Get rad after the jump…
Blackburn Ranger Shayne Khajehnoori rides and floats down the Pacific Coast Route, and performs popular mermaid-themed ballads on his recorder on his long journey to Mexico. From Blackburn:
Shayne Khajehnoori was selected as a 2015 Blackburn Ranger to ride the Pacific Coast. What makes his trip unique is that he is bringing along a pack raft, so that he can experience mother nature at a river’s pace. You will see that his bike can carry the raft of course, but the raft can also carry the bike . . . getting “Out There” on a whole different level.
Canfield Brothers present this rad free-ride edit with Lance Canfield and Lorin Whitaker:
“There was a certain feeling when we finally pulled off the highway and onto the dirt road,” says young Lorin. “I was eager to show Lance Canfield a new area that he had never ridden. He’s shown me many outstanding locations to ride and it only seemed right to bring this freeride legend to fresh ridgelines in Utah to test out his new 27.5 Jedi.”
