Golden State Journey // Canyon Bikes

What do you like to ride? Mountain trails? Rainforests? Along the beach? California’s got it all covered. Canyon Bikes take us through the incredible variety of riding available in the Golden State.

KC Deane is what could be best described as a globetrotting adventurer. Equally adept on two skis as he is on two wheels, he’s as excited about unspoiled backcountry powder as he is loamy singletrack. Not many athletes can claim a pro status in both skiing and mountain biking, resulting in a diversity that includes covers of skiing magazine, as well as having ridden Red Bull Rampage (which he did in 2014).

Whether it’s creating a photo campaign with Eddie Bauer or performing for a Powder, Backcountry or Bike Magazine covershoot, KC is used to loading his gear, grabbing his worn passport and heading to far-flung locations to shoot epic content. Switzerland. Iceland. Canada. China. That stands to reason that we expect him to go on The Search; we’ve become tempered to the fact that you have to “go” to find epic. Go away, go out there, to experience awesome. That it requires a passport to see things awe-inspiring, to experience things epic.

But sometimes, amazing is right under your nose…
