Ronnie checking in here, the last two days of the trip have been a blast! The trails and the shops were both amazing. The first set of trails we went to were our homie Aaron Days trails. The jumps were so fun and the dirt was perfect. Everyone was killing it, including the locals. Check out some of the pictures, Im sure TM Cobbs missed a couple but we got a good update for you guys. Just kidding JOE! The second set of jumps we hit were the Burbons trails. Everyone killed it there as well we it was a really cool vibe. Later on that day we hit Cycle Path Bike Shop in Hayward. They had some ramps and stuff for everyone to ride and we even okay with us climbing up on the roof and setting up a little euro gap. That was pretty spare of the moment and crazy. Nothing but good times on this trip and awesome shops. Support your local bike shops and keep shredding! Thanks for everything guys.
Day 5 was our last day in Seattle and the weather allowed for yet another trail session, this time at our good friend AP’s house. The conditions were real wet so it took a bit of good ol teamwork to get the trails running and once they were running the session went nuts. After AP’s we headed south to Oregon, crashing out in Eugene. Day 6 brought us to Klammath Falls where we had a shop stop at GonRacin BMX shop. GonRacin is our boy, Josh Clemmens, shop so needless to say the turnout was awesome and everyone could not have been cooler. We chilled at the shop for a bit before heading over to the KF skatepark which is simply out of hand. The guys were loving the park so we ended the day there before getting back in the rig and pushing on to Redding. Be sure to check back for more updates from our Demo/QBP NW trails trip.
Yesterday was a good day. When we woke up to the fourth day of rain I was getting pretty doubtful if we were actually going to get to ride trails on this trails trip. But the weather broke early on in the day and the trails were in prime condition for shredding. After the first real session of the trip, the crew headed over to Go Huck Yourself to hang out with the locals and check out the shop. When we got there, the shop guys had setup an old metal quarter dead center in the middle of the shop! The session was on and the crew and the locals destroyed this little narrow quarter for a couple hours. One local especially, teamed up with Hucker and the two of them started doing tricks on the rafters behind the quarter. Check out all the photos from the day and be sure to check out Hucker and his buddy session the shop rafters. Hucker may have actually found another human equally as crazy as himself! Scary.
MORE RAIN!!! The day started off wet so we went to Starbucks, again, and killed time at Sears playing pong, riding bikes, and generally irritating the Sears Staff. Surprising we didn’t get the boot from Sears, unsurprisingly though it was still raining so we waiting out the rain till about 4pm. When the weather finally did break we got two good sessions in at some local parks and ending the day on the BMX.
If you are in the South Renton/Seattle area tonight around 5:30pm We will be at Go Huck Yourself at 230 Main Ave from 530-730p.Be sure to come by and say whats up! See you there.

The Demolition/QBP Northwest Trails trip is underway and it’s been soggy to say the least. The plan was to drive straight from LA to Seattle and then to work our way back south over the next week, hitting trails and parks along the way. As soon as we got through Southern Oregon it starting pissing rain and has only let up once since then. We were able to fit in a park session in between rains which was awesome. Kris Fox had a massive shred boner after being stuck in the van for 20 hours and so he released his boner by cranking massive look backs and doing footjams on big scary quarters. Be sure to check back here daily for weather and riding updates from our Demolition/QBP Northwest Trails Trip.

So the Demolition in Colorado trip has come to an end and was total blast! It has actually been a couple days since we’ve got home but since the drive from Denver to LA is just shy of 20 hours I had to take a day off to recover from the mission. Lots of riding and lots of driving the last couple days of the trip, be sure to click on the post to check out the gallery from our last few days on the road while on Demolition in Colorado.
Big thanks goes out to crew and to everyone that helped us along the way to make this trip a successful and memorable one!
Day started off just a well as all the others until we all found out that Jason and Biz’s room was infested with bed bugs and had to change rooms in the middle of the night. Once we all heard that we all began to itch and get bummed so we packed up our gear, rode street all day in Colorado Springs and headed back up north to Denver for the last two days of the trip. Once clear of the insect motel we had an action packed day of spot searching and street riding. Now we’re back up in Denver and eager to keep the momentum going. Check back later for more updates from Demolition in Colorado.

Day 6 began by heading south out of Denver and into Colorado Springs for a shop stop at Pedal Action BMX. BMX specific shops are getting more and more popular and it couldn’t be more positive for BMX which is why it means so much to us to get to come out and hang with everyone from the shop and all the locals that go to the shop to keep their rides rolling. After the shop stop we rolled over to the local park with everyone, which by the way is one of the most amazing parks any of us have ever seen! The park was jammed with people so we took a few runs and moved on to shred some local street. Aboy and Tate both got some solid clips and we wrapped up the day spot searching for some more riding tomorrow! Don’t forget to come back to the site and check for some more updates from Demolition in Colorado. Click on the post and check out the rest of the photos from the day.
Yesterday the Demolition in Colorado crew made a shop stop over at PUSHER BMX. PUSHER has been around since I can remember, when I first heard of PUSHER it was a crazy out of hand BMX zine but now it is a BMX specific bike shop in Denver CO. Clay Brown started the zine in the 90′s and heads the shop now. Its awesome that places like PUSHER still hold it down and BMX and we were honored to get the invite to come by and session with all the locals. There were rails, ledges, hotdogs, and burgers, so of course the were only good times at PUSHER yesterday. Click on the post to check out all the photos from our stop over at PUSHER.
