Matt Hunter and his friends plan a trip every year to reconnect and ride.
This year, the group elected to meet in the Sawtooth Range outside of Sun Valley, Idaho. Few places embody the heart of the American West like the Sawtooth. Rugged, wild, and ever changing, it’s the perfect place to crack a beer, earn your rides, and laugh with great friends when it’s over.
Matt Hunter, some camping gear, a map, some buddies and his Specialized Enduro explore the trails of Chile.
Whether it’s in the parking lot or the pub, “How was the ride?” is a loaded question.
Coming back from a multi-day, multi-country adventure with some old friends and a new bike, the question gets asked a lot. Fresh off the trail and filled with post-ride fever, I often find myself pouring a stream of expletives and hyperboles in reply.
I admit that in an effort to describe the best moments of a ride, the truth can take a bit of a holiday. OK, maybe not EVERY corner was bermed, and the drifts weren’t ALL roosting shoulder high. Luckily for me (and for you!) the story of the Tour Mont Blanc has proof.
Please take a moment to explore the evidence behind this truly “epic” ride. Check out the scenery and the trail, and let your imagination put you in the saddle. Then get out on your bike and make your own adventure. –Matt Hunter.
