It’s been a few days since I have had internet access but finally got my mobile broadband to work now, stoked. The trip has been amazing so far.
Day 4 – Monday we rode Varsity Lakes on the Gold Coast which was an awesome session. We all got sunburnt but some good riding went down & clips were clocked. Zac Miner wrecked his ankle & had to take a few days off.
Later that night we arrived at Ventoux Cycles in Coffs Harbour for a in store appearance & it was massive. We were 4 hours late yet that didn’t faze the 200 or so kids waiting for us. It was a great time for sure. Many thanks to Al & the boys at Ventoux for putting on the BBQ & beers.
Day 5 – Tuesday was a day of nothing but driving. Something I feel we have been doing nothing but of late. Before we left Coffs Harbour we got to check out the Big Banana & the Big Slurpee which was a treat. We arrived at AA Cycles & had another in store appearance & it was really cool to meet Les & his local group of riders. It was a cool little shop & everyone appreciated the free stuff we gave out.
After AA Cycles we headed to Slamfest for a session. That place was packed. Almost no standing room here but that didn’t stop the riding going down. Alex Hiam made about 300 new fans with his bike skills & was one of the crowd favourites. Zac sat this one out with his wrecked ankle & I did a nosepick or three. Ryan made the most of what was on offer to ride & did the first ever flip whip I have seen him pull, perfect. He also banged out a double backie over the box which should not be possible over a box so small. Crazy times.
Day 6 – Wednesday we arrived at Above All BMX in Sydney for an in store & Julian really looked after us so well with an awesome BBQ & plenty of cold drinks. There were again hundreds of people hanging out, chilling & having a good time. Julian’s shop is really well done & one of the cleanest around which is a credit to his efforts.
After the in store we all headed to Helensburgh park which was a really fun time. That park is pretty fun & has some weird stuff to ride which is always good. We had a few hundred people hanging out once again riding & watching the action. Stunts were done & more sunburn was inflicted.
Zac Miner back on the bike with his wrecked ankle.
Last night we stayed in Kingscross for the night & a little partying went down. But not before we all at dinner at BurgerFuel & saw a video there of Haimona Ngata & friends from the Redbull Dirt Halfpipe. It’s always cool to see your mates on TV at random places like that.
Today we have an in store at Hell On Wheels then a ride at Five Dock at 4pm, see you there.
Yo yo !!
