“Emancipated from the cacophony of the streets, the mountain bike drew us into an adventurous, undiscovered realm where Mother Nature ruled supreme, where challenge eclipsed toil, and where camaraderie and ingenuity trumped the mano-y-mano pettiness of riding on the road.”
- Richard Cunningham

This book is an unofficial ode to the history of mountain biking, from the off-road roots of the bicycle all the way through to the future stars of the sport. Mapping its progress from back country roads to globally-watched races, Off-road Heroes remains a reflection of the riding it chronicles; fun, free and a little different.
