It was a rainy day in January and the fog lay heavy over mount Work. The forecast was gloomy as the deep darkness of space, and the slick rocks in the woods were begging for blood.
Seemingly unaware of these conditions, a bunch of people of questionable sanity showed up for the 7th annual Blubber Burn. Nicholas Kupiak was on hand and documented the race with his camera. See more of his photos after the jump.
many factors that come into play when planning the perfect riding route, but by
far the most important factor is the unknown. Sure, well trod, classic routes
can provide countless opportunities for good times on the bike but it’s the
element of the unknown that really pushes a ride to the next level. It’s
that pioneering, Lewis and Clark, new frontier, adventure shit. Shit that can only
be achieved when stepping into the unknown. Shit like a winter bikepacking trip
to Virgin Falls.
