Guy Kesteven has been testing bikes for a long time and by default, riding bikes a long time. This downtime episode takes a deep dive into his career and is a great listen.
Guy has recently also put out this video about riding responsibly and it has never been more important. Like it or not, the sport is at a turning point right now and if we don’t start acting correctly then we are going to lose a lot of trails.
These points should be common sense and if you’re reading this you’re likely to be doing them anyway, but if we don’t get the vast majority of mountain bikers understanding this then we’ll be confined to getting our kicks through virtual reality headsets and Youtube, which nobody wants.
