A short but spiffy video from GT Bicycles reminds us that sometimes the best trails are the ones we make ourselves.

What is it about handmade mountain biking features that are so appealing? Maybe it’s something about the way ramping your bike over a homemade pile of dirt and pallet slats reminds you of a childhood spent defying gravity and personal safety.
