It looks like the first day of the SSCXWC weekend was a great warmup for things to come!
This looks amazing!
“Trails can’t be measured on a universal scale. There doesn’t exist a comparison of flow to stoke that equates to a universal metric — no ‘trail spectator’ out of 100, no simple charts or graphs. Rather, the experience of the trail, as related to euphoria, is a continuous collection of multitudes extending in all dimensions. There are too many variables to include in the equation, and a limit to the math. It takes a special cultivated knowledge of proximal landscapes to understand and create the right experience. And to maximize this experience it’s not just about finding amazing trails, but the process of linking landscapes through a vast network of natural terrain.”
Ash Smith sums it up best:
“Yes, you’re looking for awesome trails, but you’re also looking — on a bigger scale — for corridors of flow, through this network of nodes and edges. Through this network which we’ve been blessed with from the agricultural past and trading past. It’s all there; we just need to find the best ways through it.”
