Mountain bike tour reviews and MTB club links

Singletracks Bizness

Last Friday we mentioned the sale on singletracks t-shirts and the response was clear: mountain bikers love $10 t-shirts. Unfortunately we ran out of size large shirts before the end of the weekend so we had to stop taking orders early this week. The good news is more shirts are being printed as we speak …

Singletracks Going Road

Mountain biking has been fun but recently the singletracks crew has decided to get more serious about road cycling. Mongoose traded his DH rig for a svelte carbon-fiber Madone from Trek and element22 was recently spotted sipping an espresso at a local cafe with his Litespeed Ghisallo titanium bike leaned against the table. Bombardier has …

More new feature shout outs

On Wednesday we announced our project to pinpoint singletracks trails on a Google Map and we’re stoked to report that we’ve received nearly 100 trails locations in just 36 hours – keep ’em coming! Other cool features that were added this week: New trail map interface. Trail maps still look *mostly* the same but we’ve …

Mapping MTB Trail Locations

It’s the feature request we hear most often: offer a searchable (Google) map of mountain bike trailhead locations on singletracks. We love the idea ourselves but it turns out it’s a little complicated since most mountain bike trails don’t have street addresses (no mailboxes either – strange). Anyway… We need your help! We just added …

New MTB video channel on singletracks!

On Friday we mentioned that singletracks now supports Vimeo videos but as Steve Jobs likes to say, there is “one more thing…” In cooperation with Broadband Sports singletracks has just launched a video channel where you can watch and share all your mountain bike videos right here on the site. There are already thousands of …

You may have noticed some changes to the way we display trail photos here on singletracks over the past couple weeks and we’re finally ready to let you know (officially) what’s up.

New Years MTB Resolutions

Yep, it’s that time of year again and, although I’m not really a resolution kind of guy, I thought up some ways to make myself a better mountain biker in 2009. Sometimes it’s tough to distinguish resolutions from goals but here’s what I came up with so far: Become more involved in local trail work …
