Get a Local Tour of MTB Paradise With Salsa’s ‘Banana Belt Bike People’

Salsa Cycles’ ‘Banana Belt Bike People’ shows off Colorado’s all-season mountain biking haven through a local lens.

What’s a “banana belt”? In Salsa’s latestFor the Love of Dirt‘ episode, the term describes a near-perfect mountain bike climate. Nestled in southern Colorado’s Native Ute territory of Nuu-agha-tuvu-pu, the belt’s wild topography offers some of North America’s best year-round MTB conditions.

In 12 short minutes, ‘Banana Belt Bike People’ centers on the belt’s diverse terrain through the eyes of a few MTB-loving locals.

The result is an easy-going, fire-stoking film that will take you down, up, and over flowy offroad trails, tumbling rivers, tall peaks, and unbridled wilderness.
