We hear so much about inclusivity these days, but not usually when it comes to our mountain bike trails.

Turns out, it's not that hard to make our trails more accessible to a wider range of riders, letting all of your friends enjoy the same awesome experience you and I enjoy every time we hit the singletrack.

Besides the warm fuzzies, there's often good money and resources available to help make it happen, too!

My guests today are Nick Bennett and Greg Durso, two of the riders and trail builders leading Vermont's charge to make more of their hundreds of miles of singletrack accessible to adaptive riders. I've ridden some of these trails, and they're awesome. But what makes them super rad is that every rider can enjoy them, and trust me, they are not watered down in any way.

If you've ever wondered what it would take to make your local trails adaptive bike friendly, or what it's like to experience a trail from their perspective, this episode is for you. Be sure to check the links in this episode's show notes at for resources and their instagram profiles to see the bikes and trails in action.
