Video: Soil Searching—Building Mountain Bike Trails with a Quiet Craftsman

Most of us mountain bikers enjoy a great ride in a remote place, often without really putting much thought into the trails that we are riding or how they get there. That isn’t the case for Hylton Turvey, who helps create some amazing trails for riders in South Africa. Rather than just blazing a trail through the wilderness, Turvey looks at the contours of the land, explores the environment around it, and creates trails that naturally blend into the space. He looks for ways to blend in as naturally and noninvasively as possible, creating tremendous routes as a result. This is how all trails should be created, with care and respect.
