|| Fruita singletrack is a little slice of heaven baked by the sun and carved from the Colorado desert. Once the temperature rises, this territory is essentially unrideable during the day–that hasn’t stopped photographer Anne Keller though. ||

|| Bike Prom 2013 in Salt Lake City, Utah. The party started in Liberty Park, proceeded through downtown, and ended at Pierpont place. Riding through the city with a couple hundred cyclists is one hell of an experience. Special thanks to the Bike Collective and all the individuals who acted as corkers for traffic. ||

|| The heat has returned to Utah. The dirt is dry and mountain biking season is back in full foce. In honor of the heat, I decided it was time to post these POV mountain biking photos. This is a continuation of the series I started a couple years ago during the winter. All of the bike photos were shot on the trail in Corner Canyon in Draper, Utah. I rode the same bike for every shot, a Civilian Bicycles Young Turk, and used the same camera rig described in my winter post.

With the explosion of HD resolution helmet cameras, this point of view is nothing new. No matter, as cliche as it sounds, this project was about trying a new technique and having fun. I accomplished both missions and came away with a series of photos that I find interesting.¬†Years from now, when I’m old and gray, these photos will remind me how fun it was to ride my bike. My hope is that they’ll do the same for someone else too. ||
