It might seem strange for us to be putting out an issue of Bike that is largely devoted to high-alpine riding at a time when much of the Northern Hemisphere is still buried under snow.

The trail map for Indiana’s Brown County State Park reminds me of Disneyworld. There are so many highlights that it’s tough to know where to start. It’s hard to believe, standing here among oaks, elms and maples that overlook nearly 30 miles of mountain-bike trails, that a map of Brown County from 10 years ago only offered a few dirt roads for bikes.
