It flowed to the sea for six million years but has not kissed the ocean since the late 1990s. A video poem to highlight the beauty and challenges of this national icon, American River’s Most Endangered River for 2013.

Inspired by a blogpost written by Gadd: willgadd.com/breathe-avoid-mcdonalds/
"We all try to be busy instead of being alive, busy instead of getting out and breathing, busy sending useless texts instead of walking in the woods with our kids or introducing them to life’s joys. We move information instead of simply moving," says Arc’teryx athlete Will Gadd in this ode to action and movement.
Acknowledging how hard it is to carve out time for exercise in our daily lives, Gadd’s passionate words remind us how important it is to get outside, breathe hard, and create meaning through movement. After all, as Gadd says, “Life’s more fun when you move.”

Early 2013, we had a little ride with our Landrover once again. A shorter trip this time, we tried to discover most of Moroccos versatile landscapes in just 3 weeks, from the Coast to the forest regions of the Middle Atlas, from the hectic Medinas of Fés and Marrakech to the high mountain ranges of the High Atlas, and finally to the dunes of the Sahara Desert. Big thanks go out to Sigma Technologies (sigmatechno.com), a local production company that invited us and provided great assistance and all our equipment. Enjoy! (4k version available soon, maybe)

This is a short compilation of experiences I made on my mountain bike during the past three years that I found worth sharing. And if you know fellow riders that are in need of a boost of motivation, please share this video with them!
A pair of mountain bikes. A bunch of frame bags. A couple of GoPro cameras. The rumour of a bothy. A map. All we needed was a plan.
But we don’t like plans. We like adventures. Plans are restrictive. Adventures are fun.
Ed and I had a couple of days free to spend entirely on bikes somewhere. We chose to go to north Wales. Near enough to get to. Far enough away to feel remote. We chose a start point and a place to stay overnight. The place was a bothy in Snowdonia that we had stumbled across whilst doing a bit of Googling one night.
That was the full extent of our ‘plan’. We were going to explore unknown-to-us tracks and trails between our start point and our bothy. We had bikes that could go anywhere; singletrack, fireroad, road, rock, mud, moorland, woodland, wilderness, civilisation, up, down, along, over and through. We didn’t have any limitations on the sort of terrain we could deal with.
All we needed to do was get to the bothy before nightfall. Find the bothy. And hope it was open.
You can have some awfully big adventures when all you have to do all day is go for an explore on your bike.
