How hard is adaptive mountain biking? Loam and Gravel Society web series decides to find out. To do so, they head to Vancouver Island and the expansive trails of Cumberland, B.C.

The fourth episode of Old Man Mountain Rack’s web series introduces new hosts, Karl Kroll and Rachael Sawyer. They head to Cumberland to meet up with Gene Wey and Dave Sagal.

Both experienced aMTB riders (Sagal’s even raced aMTB downhill at the Dunbar Summer Series), Wey and Sagal show off how the Bowhead Reach changes their riding, and its use beyond the trails. Then they give Kroll and Sawyer a lesson on how to ride – or how hard it is to ride – an aMTB.
