With this year’s riding season in full swing, Freehub pays tribute to a return to trails and travel with our 12.3 edition—a stoke-filled book honoring progression in many forms. Every step forward contributes to the advancement of the mountain bike community, and this issue examines successes big and small. In the rugged state of Nevada, impassioned individuals are working selflessly to revitalize former mining communities through outdoor recreation and trailbuilding, with lifelong ranchers and freeride luminaries such as Cam Zink (featured on our cover) sharing the same objectives. In Harrisonburg, Virginia and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, hardcore riding communities are infusing a new generation of riders with a heartfelt appreciation for the value of old-school, technical singletrack. And on the hallowed slopes of Vancouver’s North Shore, original freeride pioneers still mingle with their ultra-talented progeny, proving that progression is a constant—and that it begins with each of us.
