Hello, it’s AJ17, summer 2020! The cover photo is by Joey Schusler and accompanies a story on the mental health benefits of mountain biking—seems particularly relevant given all the turmoil and anxiety in the world right now.There’s also a profile of activist artist Jer Collins, whose work you may already know, an essay about finding meaning in your travel even when travel is close to home, a report on the changing ethos of climbing route names and whether offensive ones should be changed. Our Historical Badass is Barbara Hillary, the first black woman to stand on the North and South poles, and our portfolio features Mike Ranta, who canoed across Canada not once but three times.
