Imagine this challenge; take your favorite downhill trail—the one you could jam through with your eyes closed—and take a picture in your mind. Got it? Feel every turn? See every tree, every drop, every little rock? Now flip it, and take another picture of the trail…. as it flows uphill. Do you recognize it? Would you know its subtleties the way you do when you’re headed down? Transcend is about elevating yourself beyond the usual. Developing a new perspective for the trails you ride and reinventing what’s familiar. And maybe, as Bringhurst does, proving that yes—you can have have steeze while going up.
