Description

We've sold out of our print run of Issue 12.1. We do have a few additional copies remaining, but they will not ship with the protective sleeve (as shown in photo).

As Freehub enters its 12th year of coffee-table book publishing, we’re proud to present this special Northwest Oregon Photo Book—a visual field guide to one of the planet’s greatest places to ride a mountain bike. Though Northwest Oregon’s striking diversity of landscapes and climates naturally lends itself to world-class riding, the trails themselves were transformed by the people who’ve lived here: the native inhabitants who first created them, the loggers who built access roads and the mountain bikers and equestrians who have expanded and maintained them over the last several decades. This weighty book is a tribute to these people, with extensive photo galleries, stories and maps highlighting the region’s finest riding destinations and chronicling how they came to be. From the growing networks near the outdoor-loving cities of Portland and Bend to the storied trail systems surrounding the timber-rich towns of Hood River and Oakridge, this carefully crafted manual paints a vivid picture of why these extraordinary places should be at the top of every mountain biker’s bucket list.
