Now I see your request; I guess that I'm not really the person to create a curated list of the world's best trails. And I think that's what I was trying to get across — no matter how far you travel or how many trails you ride, it comes down to the memories you make, and the people with whom you ride. I have story after story I could relate about riding top secret trails with world famous riders, but I think you can get that from a lot of other places. I wanted to offer a slightly different take, and remind Vital's readership that the important thing is actually getting out there. You don't need to travel the world over to feel like you're a part of this community.

With all that said, I think your idea could be a great topic for another article!

That article could be written. Just likely not by me. I've ridden in Jamaica, Mexico, Canada, Costa Rica, Chile, UK, Germany, Spain, France, Belgium, Canary Islands, South Africa... but I hardly spent enough time in ANY of those places to write a definitive guide.

I can think of a few people who possess that knowledge, though...

Point taken. With this piece, I wanted to consider my audience who I naively assumed would be primarily US-based.
I've ridden a lot of incredible trails over the years in many places around the world. These are just the places that stuck with me, for whatever reason. Am I hearing a request for, "The most exotic locations you've ridden?"

It's really great to hear from you, Dan. Please send me the grammatical errors! I sat on this piece for some time before just clicking send....without proofing. D'oh!

I can understand your note about the elitism of private trails as being on a bucket list. Technically, the trails are not as restricted as you might think. Since you know me, I could invite you to ride here. Consider that invitation extended, indefinitely, right now.

I hate that too -- that's why Trek has a toggle switch to change every measurement over from inches to cm -- just depends on your preference.

Fisher got the shock first with its Roscoe -- but Trek has integrated it into the Fuel EX and Remedy. Trek and Fisher, both owned by Trek.
