Slaughter Pen and Blowing Springs in Bentonville, Arkansas CARL ZOCH

1. Slaughter Pen and Blowing Springs

Bentonville, Arkansas

The Slaughter Pen program incorporates rollicking downhill flow traces (Boo Boo and Choo Choo) and chundery Schroen Prepare. The Razorback Regional Greenway to the Blowing Springs network has cliffy drops and waterfalls.

2. South Mountain Park and Protect


Towering saguaro cacti encompass South Mountain Park and Preserve‘s 70 miles of blocky-rocky singletrack where Pivot Cycles developed and tested its Shuttle e-MTB.

3. The White Rim

Moab, Utah

This one hundred-mile route showcases landscapes in Canyonlands National Park. On e-MTBs, cyclists can finish The White Rim about a few times (fairly than the normal four) and float up the final 1,five hundred-foot climb.

4. Greenhorn Gulch

Ketchum, Idaho

Sleek, flowy ribbons of decomposed granite wind via thickets of wildflowers, grasses, and ghost forests scorched by wildfires in Greenhorn Gulch. E-MTBs let you see it all on the 23-mile loop combining the Cow Creek/Mahoney/Greenhorn/Imperial trails.

5. Large Bear Lake

San Bernardino, California

You can load an e-MTB onto the lifts at Summit Bicycle Park, or sew jointly routes on one hundred miles of cross-nation and gravel trails. The six-mile Cactus Flats loop threads via Joshua trees, even though the a lot more technical 15-mile John Bull loop worries riders with ledges and slickrock. Large Bear Lake simply cannot be beat.
