A great local race that’s just long and steep enough to make your rethink your decision, but so fun and rewarding that you’ll gladly sign-up again next year!
For 270 miles, the RockStar Trail Route (RTR) weaves its way up, over, and through some of the oldest mountains in the world. Spanning from Harrisonburg, Va to Roanoke, Va., the RTR is a backcountry bikepacking adventure defined by steep climbs, jagged ridgelines, and bomber descents. Two of Bluestone's very own, Charlie and Adam, rode 200 miles of this awesome adventure. Check out Adam's trip report here!
Last night we had an awesome time at Pale Fire Brewing hearing from Adam and Jess about their adventures from this past summer on the Great Divide Mountain Bike Route. We'll recap that soon, but in the meantime we wanted to also highlight another friend of the shop, who did the route right on the heels of Adam and Jess.
David Landis and his family do not shy away from big adventures. As a family they did the GDMBR and they captured the entire story on their blog.

With the weather treading warmer and Spring on the horizon, most of us are chomping at the bit to get outside! As Weather warms its also more Important than ever to carry and drink water. We recently started carrying this unique product from Nathan, A flexible 24 Oz water bottle made of silicone! (The bottle is BPA free.) You can roll it up when its empty to optimize space in your pack and when full it conforms to the items around it making it the perfect water solution for bike packing. The bottle is also a safe alternative to a hard bottle when trail riding or running because it will not push into your back and is much less likely to cause injury if you fall on it. Come by either shop today to check one out!
