Mountain bike guidebook author Stephen Hlawaty was documenting the best mountain bike trails in Colorado nearly two decades before the #vanlife started trending. Now he’s back at it with an updated edition of his book, Mountain Biking Colorado: An Atlas of Colorado’s Greatest Off-Road Bicycle Rides.
I spoke with Stephen about his favorite trails, what it takes to document and publish mountain bike trail information, and why he’s still a fan of paper books in the digital age.
Stephen’s book can be purchased at local bookstores and also Amazon.com. (Singletracks receives a small commission for purchases made through this link.)
