I have had an idea brewing in the back of my mind for quite a while now. I wanted to create a website that pulls together blog posts, articles, videos and photos from a variety of sources and highlights them all at one place. It would be a simple and easy way to get an idea for what is happening out there in the world of outdoor sports – specifically endurance mountain biking. But my recent discovery of backcountry skiing has only enhanced that idea, giving me more material to pull from, and more variety for readers to click on. And with my work paying for me to learn how to design and program websites, I figured it was as good a time as any to ‘practice’ what I have been learning.
And so, I am excited to introduce: The Backcountry Times.
From ski tours, to solo endurance bike races, and everything relevant in between, I hope that the site can be a nice resource for all kinds of interesting stories from all the outdoor freaks who are sharing thier adventures on the internet.
Check it out, and let me know what you think!
Oh, and feel free to bookmark the site and share it with your friends.
