Portland

We made it to Portland yesterday and damn did we have some fun getting here riding some amazing parks and the first day here was also a treat! Thanks to all the locals we’ve hung out with, you’ve made it so much fun. Also an extra shout out to Paddy for the beds to sleep in and showing us The Lumberyard.

Northern travels

We are still heading north to Portland right now and yesterday we came up on this park in Sacramento called Granite which was seriously the most amazing park I’ve ever seen. If you have any interest in riding bowls this place would be the ultimate! 8 bowls with endless lines, chilled local riders and skaters and perfect lights. If you are ever in the area be sure to hit it up. Thanks to Cody for the help on this one.

On the road

Myself, Ryan, Tom, Jourdan and Bobbie are heading north of LA at the moment on a filming trip. So far it’s been a blast, hitting up some nice parks and spots and just sort of playing it by ear on where we are going. We will hopefully get to Portland in the next day or 2. Here are a few random shots from the trip.

More from San Diego

Yesterday we had the pleasure of riding the Home Ave Ditch, for me this has been a spot I have wanted to hit for years and it didn’t let us down. Massive shout out to anyone that played apart in making that spot what it is today.

San Diego trip

Myself, Bobbie Altiser and Tom Stretton are out in San Diego for a few days before we start the long drive to Austin. We’ve been hitting up the Ocean Beach park which is a blast and the locals are real cool so hit it up anytime you are in the area.

Brazil trip updates

So every day or 2 I have been getting sent photos from the guys in Brazil documenting their trip and I must say I am very jealous. It really does look like they are having such a good time along with the locals, just seeing how stoked everyone is in these shots makes me love BMX more and more. Go ride.

Thanks to Renan Souza for the photos.

Brazil update

The guys over in Brazil seem to be having a blast going off the Instagram photos they’ve been posting. That being said Chris did dislocate his shoulder on the first day which is shitty but otherwise good times are being had.

FTLT – Day 17

The sun was out again in Melbourne so I took the guys down to the iconic St Kilda banks on the beach which was pretty damn good then onto the city for a roll well into the evening. Good times indeed.

FTLT – Day 16

In Melbourne now with Tom, Jourdan and Brandon staying at my place, we headed out this afternoon to hit a few spots, film some clips, Brandon hit his head then Tom filmed some amazing stuff. Solid day indeed. Let’s do it again tomorrow!

FTLT – Day 15

We spent the day filming and riding at Woden park in Canberra, we planned to only be there for a warm up before hitting some spots but one clip led to another and before we knew it, it was freezing cold and the sun was going down. Everyone seemed to have fun though and we got some solid clips which I am stoked on!

FTLT – Day 14

We spent the good part of the day hanging out at Backbone BMX riding the flat rails and checking out the shop. As always Backbone hosted a great day. We then hit up a session at the iconic Erindale Banks where I snapped this shot of Zac just as the cold was really setting in.

FTLT – Day 13

A couple good days spent in Sydney were just had with real good weather, clips filmed and too much dice played. Here are a couple photo’s of Chris at a packed Bondi park.

FTLT – Day 11

The sun was out in Sydney so we hit up Five Dock park and then onto a few spots throughout the day which was real productive. We have another day in Sydney before we head down to Canberra!

FTLT – Day 10

We spent the day driving from Newcastle after hitting up the Wallsend park then got settled in Sydney and searched a few schools with some good results. That evening a couple of us hit up the city for a roll and Tom got an awesome clip after a couple hours of putting in work for it!

Brisbane to Newcastle

We spent the day/evening driving from Brisbane to Newcastle which is about 800km’s, it rained almost the entire time which made it worse to drive in. Fortunately we did get a little window of dry weather as we went through Nambucca Heads so we hit up the park to break the drive.

Backyard sessions

We had a pretty chilled day after the long drive the night before so a few of the guys hit up the backyard for a session and then in the evening it was onto RideOn which was a blast seeing everyone out.

FTLT – Day 4

We spent the day in Rockhampton hanging out at the Giant Rockhampton store and then onto the park. The weather was dialed and all the locals were well into a session with the guys. Then it was a long LONG 8 hours of crappy roads and road work back to Brisbane. Thanks to everyone that came out for the day.

FTLT – Day 3

We hit up M1 Cycles in Gladstone yesterday, hung out with the locals and had them jumping bikes for t-shirts. Then onto the local park which was packed with riders and a good session followed! Thanks to everyone who came out and enjoyed the sunshine.

FTLT – Day 2

Yesterday was another good day. We started out in Maryborough & hit up some local street spots which turned out well. Then made the drive to Woodgate but stopped off in Childers on the way to hit some rails.

I was really wanting to show the guys Woodgate though, one for the awesome ramp & also to see the kangaroos that are always hanging right by the ramp. The local wildlife did not let us down & both Jourdan & Brandon got to see their first ever kangaroos. Some good riding went down from Chris as well with some solid stuff going down in the last specks of day light.

Today we are in Gladstone & will be at M1 Cycles at 11am then the park in town at midday. Come & say g’day !!

Yo yo !!

FTLT- Day 1

I guess today was technically the first day of the Follow the Lines Tour with everyone. We were up at the crack of dawn to start the drive north. We hooked up with the locals at Wilcox Bike shop in Maryborough and then after a few delays we hit up the local trails. To be honest I wasn’t expecting too much but as soon as we got into the bushes all of our jaws dropped, the place was a materpiece! The locals put in serious work for these jumps to look so damn good and everyone got involved and a real solid session was had! Thanks again to Wilcox Bikes and all the crew that came out, along with all the trails heads for there amazing work and for letting us enjoy the fruits of their labor.
