Time for some relief from the grindstone, open your eyes people it’s Midweek Mini Movies!
A bit of snow, a bit of mud and a load of dust and sunshine. Bike Polo, recycled fixies and the EliptiGo.

Flow Mountain Bike at Alice Springs
Flow Mountain Bike visited Alice Springs recently to get the low down on the trails that’ll be used for Ingkerreke Commercial Mountain Bike stage race in early May.

PROJEKT ROAM: Chasing Gravity — Episode 5
Bypassing desert landscapes of cactus and cowboys commonly associated with the southwestern states of New Mexico and Arizona, Colt and Jessee head to the fresh, mountainous regions to experience and explore Angel Fire and Sunrise Mountain Resorts.
Bike parks…feet dangling, the gentle swaying of the lift as it carries you upward. There is just something about being sky high, surveying the runs below from a bird’s eye view that gives my heart a little extra flutter. It’s almost as if my senses are heightened with anticipation, just knowing the moment I hop off the lift, it’s time to shred.
