Trailer tease: 4130 Subway Series doc

3 04 2014

From humble beginnings, the 4130 Subway Series Ride has grown to become the largest BMX ride in North America (and probably the world).

Hitting streets of Hollywood, LA, Beverly Hills and points beyond, this ride draws hundreds of riders every month.

Now, for those folks that haven’t made it out to a ride yet, PSi films has teamed up with the 4130 crew to put together a documentary on the ride.  The release date has been pushed out a bit (no confirmation at press time) but if this trailer is any indication, it looks like it’s gonna be a good one!

And in related news, as was mentioned back in the Spring Brake Ride Las Vegas post back in February, the 4130 Subway Series crew is meeting up with Sin City Series crew this month for an epic ride through Vegas.

4130 LA to Vegas

I joined these guys (both the LA and Vegas crews) back in 2011 for the first ride they did together (I’m actually in the pic above, under the Vegas sign) and it was an awesome time. Not to be missed if you can make your way out there.





4130 Subway Series hits the 3-year mark

12 01 2013

Three years already…Wow.

The world famous 4130 Subway Series ride celebrates its 3-year anniversary tonight.

4130 3-year anniversary patch

The 4130 Subway Series is pure BMX and that’s been the secret of its success.  Looking back at a CR post talking about it in 2010, nothing’s changed:

….cruising the neighborhood with friends.

Nothing quite replaces the joy of roaming the streets, hitting spots and feeling free as you roll along on your bike.

The 4130 Club has captured all those things in their monthly rides.

It doesn’t matter if you’re a street rider, a racer, old school or new school…all are welcome and the positive vibe is contagious.

That being said, I’m kicking myself for not being down there with the 4130 Chromies for what I’m sure will be an epic ride.

I’m sure even while I’m typing this, people are already doing the final checks on their bikes and making their way down to the meet-up spot in Hollywood.

4130 3-year anniv. plate & Mayor's ride

The main man behind the 4130 ride,The Mayor of Hollywood will be rolling on his sweet twin top tube Tribute 24, complete with a custom 3-year anniversary plate from Crit. (As you can see, Morty the guard dog will ensure no one messes with it before the ride begins.)

So if you’re riding tonight, be safe and have fun.

If you’re not riding, start thinking about when you can attend a 4130 ride in the future. This a must-do for any BMXer!
