It’s nice to escape. Whether that’s a day out of the office or a weekend without cell service, there’s something to be said for straying from our normal routines. Mountain bikes offer this opportunity on a continual basis—mountain bikes and a slice of singletrack can take us anywhere. From uncharted peaks just beyond our backyard, to the Himalaya or the towers of Patagonia, there’s freedom to be found on two wheels. Freehub Issue 9.4 is dedicated to tales of adventure and escape, telling the stories of people and the extraordinary places their bikes take them.
