In cahoots with Niner Bikes for the launch of the new RLT 9, the folks from Kitsbow – specialists in mountain biking apparel – have put together this video, documenting a dirt tour from Fort Collins to Steamboat Springs. In the spirit of adventure, they report that “Friendships were forged and fun was had. 197 dirty, epic miles and 19,302 brutal feet of elevation gain later, all the Steamboat Ralleye crew could talk about were the moments: morning coffee, spotting a huge bald eagle, breathing in fresh early-Autumn air, turning a corner to a vista on a lonely backcountry road, and witnessing the otherworldly hues of Aspen groves.”
