Hashtag #twofourtuesday

28 01 2014

I’m not sure if Bobby Parker started the hashtag #twofourtuesday but he has certainly been the most avid user of it.

Reppin’ the 24 like nobody’s business, Bobby has been spreading the word with #twofourtuesday and his own brand of big wheel ramping for some time now.

Today is no exception. Check out this shot of BP shredding the project loop ramp at Fun Fest 7. Radabonzical!

You do us proud Bobby. Respect.

BMX in the polar vortex

23 01 2014

If you’re not in one of the sunshine states right now, you’re probably dealing with the record low temps of this unbelievably cold winter.

It’s what weather forecaster types call the polar vortex.

It’s enough to drive a BMX enthusiast crazy.

Sure, there are a few options to cope.

If you’re near an indoor bike park, you’re just a short drive a way from your much needed riding fix. This is probably the best of the cold weather options…if you live in the right area.

Another option is finding an enclosed parking garage..this limits the type of riding you can do…think flatland, sprints, maybe some low-key street…but it’s still riding, right?

Or maybe it’s time to look old man winter in the eye and say to hell with it…suit up in some cold weather gear and pop some wheelies in the snow! Like rrdblocks does in this pic that originally ran on the SE Bikes FB page.  Sometimes you have to take a stand.

4 years strong: The 4130 Subway Series

11 01 2014

Based in Southern California but known around the world, The 4130 Subway Series hits the 4-year mark this weekend with what promises to be an epic ride.

4 years strong 4130 subway series

With every year the ride gets bigger and better, so if you’re anywhere in SoCal this weekend, you better drop what you’re doing and get down with the 4130 crew because this ride is pure BMX.

Even the post-ride celebration is worthy of mention…held at the Pig’N Whistle in Hollywood…riders get special “parking” for their bikes. When you roll 4130, you’re VIP!

Looking forward to seeing all the photos and videos from Saturday night.

Respect to the 4130 crew.

Have a great ride!





The Gonz rides in NYC on a Sunday 24″

9 01 2014

Mark Gonzales.

A pioneer of modern-day street skating, sought-after artist and speaker, one hell of a character and still widely influential to this day…Mark “The Gonz” Gonzales is a legend in the skate world.

What’s he up to these days?

Still skating…but…and this where things get interesting…he’s now riding a Sunday Wave-C as he takes on the streets of SoHo.

Check out this video posted over at Vice (along with a short interview).





Send me an angel? New movie gets Rad

3 01 2014

It’s perhaps one of the oddest pop-cultural references to the movie RAD in recent memory.

In a new movie called Coffee Town (out now on pay-per-view)  a character  experiments with a recreational pharmaceutical and finds himself in a place “where love can only be expressed by BMX freestyle”…that is, the dance scene from the movie RAD. You know, the one that embedded the song Send me an angel into your memory banks like every BMX kid that came of age in the 80s.

Truly weird and cool at the same time.

Bonus info: Gabe Weed did the “stunt work” for this clip.
