A Look Back At The First Free Range October

One of the things we take pride in here at Salsa is providing great content from around the world. Our hope is that this content helps educate and inspire you to try new things, go new places, and have even greater adventures.

Free Range October was a first for us: 31 days of fresh, daily blog coverage.

It might not sound like much, but take a look at the incredible library of stories these 31 days offered. Our thanks to everyone, from Salsa staff to sponsored riders to Guest Bloggers, who contributed.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Mike Riemer

I love being outside. I prefer to ride on dirt. Or snow. If I was born a hundred years earlier I might have been a polar explorer. There's a great natural world out there to see, smell, taste, listen to, and experience. Life slows down out there and the distractions we've created will disappear if you let them. Give me a backpack and let me go.

Really enjoyed it…. I personally would like more XC racing stories and XC trail rides.
I don’t know how Salsa has managed to find so many great Blogers. I tip my helmet to you Salsa Cycles.
