Welcome to Issue 13.1
Freehub is proud to kick off its 13th year of publishing with this limited-edition Vermont Photo Book—a visual field guide to one of the world’s greatest riding destinations, written and photographed exclusively by locals who know it best. Renowned for its tradition of four-season outdoor recreation, the Green Mountain State has, in recent decades, parlayed its snow-sports heritage into the creation of a mountain bike paradise. Though much of Vermont’s land is privately owned, trailbuilders have forged deep relationships with townships and landowners that have allowed trails to connect from one property to the next. Today, the state has more than 1,000 miles of mapped trails and major organizers insist this is only the beginning of a peaceful trail revolution for the people. This lovingly crafted manual is a tribute to Vermont, with extensive photo galleries and stories celebrating the state’s finest riding—and the hardworking people who are making it happen.
