Sam's Favourite Corner
Get your adrenaline pumping with an exhilarating ride through New England High Country. Off road riding is about discovering open roads where the bike can kick up dust, or a winding path following a river, or a steep ascent that reveals another amazing view. It’s about escaping the chaos of city life for a few days and getting lost in nature and unfamiliar destinations. In all honesty, there are never enough hours in a day, or days in a life, which is why it’s important to get off road and do the stuff that makes you feel alive. Join Sam as he takes us through his favourite corner of New England High Country. Explore off-the-beaten-track destinations, ride through an historic rock tunnel, have a drink at Dobson’s Distillery in Kentucky, and discover your own magic spot where the vista opens out and you can see the scale of the world you’re in. For another insight into this incredible region, read Sam's full account of his recent ride through New England High Country with Australasian Dirt Bike magazine.
