We LOVE cycling here at Riding Way and see it as much more than simply just owning a bike. It has been an obsession for as long as I remember so when I wrote my wife’s car off a few years ago, it was an easy decision to hand her the keys to mine and convert to pedal power for most of my journeys.
It get’s me stoked, no, more than stoked to be able to say I’ve been a part, if only a small part, of 2020 BMX Magazine and the issue that’s about to land here in our cozy little Bentleigh East bike shop is the fiftieth. Yes, 50 issues photographed, typed, printed and distributed to the freestylers, street riders and beginners alike all around this great country and beyond.
This has taken me a bit longer than expected, my tip for you, don’t pour a big can of Red Bull on your nice Apple Mac Book Pro. Anyway, now I’ve got my new computer, let’s give you a short run down of the BMX Racing down at the South Eastern BMX Club here in Oakleigh. Continue reading →
Riding more and more now, I find it great to track where I’ve been and how far I’m going. I know for a lot of people just ride for fun, as do I, but having the numbers is a great motivator to get out and riding more. Continue reading →
Motivation levels are high this year and improving my general fitness is at the forefront of my personal goals. I read an article recently about ‘wanting it’ enough. It rang some bells inside and, as I’m studying myself intensely of late, the article had me further investigating what it is that I want. Continue reading →
I love photography and when I see someone using it in a totally unique way I can only feel inspired. It’s such a powerful tool that too often people are using for more Facebook likes and not to try inspire, help or simply, tell a good story. Pictures, as I was once told, can tell a thousand words. A thousand bloody words in one picture? That’s amazing. But I feel a lot of those words are lost, or erased when Photoshop are used to ‘make my image better’. Shoot a good photograph first, forget about photoshop, don’t try get the perfect image but embrace the flaws that tell more words.
Here’s a gentleman in New York creating stunning images by getting people, strangers picked seemingly at random, and placed together for a n intimate photograph. The results are amazing. Continue reading →
Sometimes a little bit of motivation is needed. A little bit of extra positivity. I like to surround myself with positive people because it breeds more positivity. Because of this, I’m super stoked right now and feel like I could achieve anything and this quick video is only adding to my buzz. Let’s get STOKED on being RADICAL. If you need some more internet time, watch this… Continue reading →
It’s a common theme I’m talking lately, don’t grow up. Don’t succumb to the pressures of society and don’t follow the pack and do as your told. “Break the rules; not the law, but break the rules.” – Arnold Schwarzenegger
Anywho, this is Joe Simon’s video that is all about doing what you want, not growing up and generally not heading to the death bed saying “I wish I did this, I wish I did that…” GO, stop looking at the internet and go LIVE LIFE.
I swore I’d never ride a road bike. For almost 30 years I told my dad “NEVER, it’s boring, why would I ride a road bike?” And…. now I ride one almost every day and get frustrated when I don’t. ARGH. Dang it, I think I’m a cyclist…. Sorry. Continue reading →
It’s the age old battle. Who owns the roads? Cars are bigger, faster and better right? They should get the ultimate say on the roads, right? But bicycles are cheaper, better for the environment, quieter, they should have the bigger voice, right? Below are a few videos of confrontation and well, my thoughts… What do you think? Leave Your Thoughts Below. Continue reading →
