Pumped on the Pump Track

The past week or so a bunch of us have been working on my good friend Kyle Warner's backyard. He had most of it built from the years before, but we spent a couple days just clearing the yard out. Now that everything is clear, we have been adding new lines and planning things out to utilize the whole backyard. This isn't your average pump track. First of all, the space is pretty tight, but Kyle has made this into a dirt skatepark with lines everywhere and has made it flow so nice. Also there are very few pumps throughout the track, which means you carry your speed through berms and bowls which makes it more challenging, but much more fun. Stay tuned for an edit once we are finished with the digging, but for now here are a couple photos of it, enjoy!

Wallride this, hip it, or soak it up and blast this berm. All are equally as fun!

Lower Bidwell with the Lady

My girlfriend is going to hate me for this, but I gotta post them. The other day Kelsey and I headed to Lower Bidwell to take some photos. Lower Bidwell is all flat and full of little cruiser paths, but is so beautiful and full of different types of trees. Not the best place to shred, but a really really nice place to go and picnic along Chico Creek, or just be close to nature right next to town. Here is what we came out with, enjoy!

Mammoth Lakes

A couple months back, I went to Mammoth with my girlfriend and family. We hiked and biked and hung with  family and friends. I was mostly too busy riding my bike and didn't really take that many photos, but here is what I came out with by the end. Enjoy!

Fire leading up to the clouds and making them crazy! It is hard to capture this in a photo.

Me and the gf took a day trip to Yosemite.

A day of riding in Chico

Last monday, my two good riding friends came up for a spur of the moment visit for the night and the next day. Luckily, I don't really have class on Tuesdays, so it was the perfect time to show them the spots. They arrived monday night and we headed to my backyard mini ramp, which I thought was only skate-able. Wrong. These dudes shred so hard and push each other and it was so much fun to watch them ride such a tiny setup. The next day we woke up early and started at the Chico park. After we rode for a bit and took a few photos, we went to the Oroville park which is one of my favorite parks because of the perfect transitions and unique lines it has. After a super solid sesh, we headed back to Chico to Rob Kennedy's Compound, which happens to be open to the public on only Tuesdays and Saturdays! Mitch hit his first real dirt jump and Tyler spun all jumps and flipped one of them! All in all this day was sick and I am super stoked they came out. Here is what we came out with, enjoy!

A Day with Mr. Warner

On my birthday the other day, my good friend Kai came up to visit and celebrate. We decided it was about time to go out and make an edit with Kyle, so Tuesday morning Kai, Kyle, and I headed out to lower Guardians trail. After a good hike up, the fun began. The ride ended with a nice refreshing dip in the creek. Check mine and Kai's media blog: for the upcoming edit! Enjoy..
