10 Barrel Brewing Releases New Hazy IPA in Support of Surfrider Foundation

One percent of all proceeds of Profuse Juice to benefit world’s oceans, waves and beaches

Hazy IPAs are trending with the “Haze Craze,” and with that, 10 Barrel Brewing has just launched its new Profuse Juice, a gold medal winner at the 2019 North American Beer Awards (NABA), in partnership with Surfrider Foundation, a California-founded nonprofit grassroots organization. One percent of all proceeds of the beer—both cans and draughts—will go towards Surfrider and its mission to protect the world’s oceans, waves and beaches.

Profuse Juice is an ode to salty beach days and peeling lefts at your favorite break. At 6.5% ABV and 45 IBU’s, this tropical brew is light enough to knock a few back on the beach after a day of surfing. The focus of this drinkable Hazy IPA was to bring out all of the tropical juicy hop flavors while keeping the bitterness in check. …

Bike Camping

An ode to the hike and bike campgrounds of California

By Leonie Sherman

Maybe the idea of lining up to pay the federal government to camp on land that we are supposed to own upsets you. Maybe you are searching for a vacation option that doesn’t contribute to climate change. Maybe making a reservation months in advance for a wilderness experience doesn’t land well. Whatever the case, if you love camping, and bikes, if you like your recreation carbon neutral and if spontaneity is how you roll, California has a network of hike and bike campsites begging for your attention.

You won’t find them in our National Parks, those theme parks of glorious natural beauty plagued by crowds and concessions. California’s hike and bike campsites are hidden in plain view, in state recreation areas, state parks and state beaches, from Del Norte County to the Mexican border. Choose your own …

Race the Rails 2019

September 7, 2019 • Ruth, NV
elynevada.net/2018/07/12/race-the-rails

The steam locomotive and the bicycle were both invented a little over ten years apart. Both changed the way we travel. Which one will prevail on September 7 at Race the Rails?

Participants will ride the historic steam engine, with their bikes, up to the mining town of Ruth, NV and the base of the Robinson Mine. At the sound of the train whistle, mountain bikers and road bikers race onto their individual courses to see who can get back to the depot before the train.

This is not a race against time or your fellow riders, it’s a race against one of history’s most powerful inventions! Mountain bikers test their speed and agility on a challenging ten mile course through the beautiful mountains surrounding Ely, while road bikers prove their speed and endurance on a 25-mile course along roads and highways in …

Kula Cloth

Kula Cloth, where have you been all our lives? This simple yet sublimely designed piece of cloth is not only a women’s backpacking essential, but also a proven convenience for road trips and other adventurous endeavors. It’s even useful at home in support of green living!

This “pee cloth extraordinaire” far surpasses the usual bandana or swatch of flannel. It’s made from advanced silver-infused textiles purposely intended to be in contact with the human body. Amazingly, its one layer of silver absorbent fabric is equal to three layers of microfiber terry and six of french terry. Of course, the cloth boasts antimicrobial properties, and its high-tech textiles resist odor. Retro-reflective thread makes it easy to find in the middle of the night, and its nifty double snap feature makes it a breeze to fold up discreetly when not in use.

So, bid …

Oslo Pax

Addressing climate change is not possible without peace; peace is not possible until we address climate change

By Leonie Sherman

“We are the first generation to experience the impacts of climate change,” Raymond Johansen, Governing Mayor of Oslo told a packed room at Oslo Pax, the Nobel Peace Center’s first annual Peace and Climate Conference. “And we are the last generation that can actually do something about it.”

Over the course of the next two days, the 200 politicians, activists, writers, generals, and young people who gathered at Oslo Pax helped me understand how lucky I am to call California home. Our state has been actually doing something about climate change for years. In 2006, California set an absolute statewide limit on greenhouse gas emissions. Ten years later we extended and strengthened the limit. In 2018, California organized an international summit which gathered governments, the private sector and indigenous leaders …

Three Deaths and a Press Trip to San Diego

The author travels to the beaches and breweries of southern California, where he faces both his work as a journalist and the loss of his friends

By Chris Van Leuven

April 18, 2019. Waking up covered in sweat, pain pulses in the back of my skull, reminding me of last night’s wine party. I try to sit up, a sharp aching courses through my ribs, the result of my friend’s daughter running me over with her bike. Slumping back in my bed I grab my phone. Trolling for stories is my job. I’m a journalist.

I bolt upright, ignoring the pain. An early report that three professional climbers – men I’d interviewed over the years – had been swept away in an avalanche and were presumed dead. Hansjörg Auer, Jess Roskelley and David Lama gone.

My phone’s pinging with birthday wishes and condolences. Today is my 42nd birthday but that’s …

E-Bike Summer Camp

SBTS brings National Forest and MTB industry staff together to learn and play in Downieville 

By Kurt Gensheimer

Cyclists enjoy riding electric mountain bikes in Downieville.

Even though he’s not a writer, mountain bike racing legend Mark Weir has a way with words. He’s able to summarize life experiences succinctly while being entertaining, making you simultaneously think while laughing. Take for instance his description about e-bikes and why he loves them so much.

“Back in my racing days, I did rides that ninety-nine percent of people couldn’t physically do,” said Mark. “Climbing for hours while staring at my fork tubes wasn’t fun. It sucked. It was painful. I was cry-breathing a lot. After the pain and suffering subsided, the ride seemed fun. But on an e-bike, that same climb is now suddenly fun in the moment, not afterward looking back. That’s what I love most about e-bikes; you can have fun while doing it.”

In addition to …
