The MTBVT project has two main objectives. The first is to be an online source of all things mountain biking in Vermont, whether it’s announcing the opening of a local trail, an approaching community event or an up-and-coming hucker you need to keep your eyes on. The information will be supplemented by stunning photography and entertaining writing by our crack team of bike addicts including pro rider and builder Knight Ide, and Mocean365’s master of movement Skye Nacel.
MTBVT’s second objective is to finish a comprehensive state guide that will act as a catalyst for mountain bikers to explore trail networks, visit local resorts, retailers, and restaurants, and join trail stewardship programs in Vermont.
In short, MTBVT is the hub for all things biking in the green mountains.
The project is the brainchild of two avid mountain bikers, Vince Hempsall, an editor and writer with 16 years journalism experience, and Ryan Thibault, an illustrator, photographer and graphic artist who has done design work for Louis Garneau, Freeride Entertainment, and Highland Mountain Bike Park, among others.
