Holy Smokes! This edit from the good kids of Colony BMX really blew my mind. I knew the boss man was good with front brakes but I didn’t know anyone else still ran them, let alone was a magician with them. Sit back, kick your feet up and prepare to fall off your seat as Bobbie Altiser shows you how to ride front brakes…
The better weather has started to show it’s beautiful face even though I just heard we’ve had the wettest September in quite some years, but it’s time to drag out your trusty stead and get it repaired and serviced. Continue reading →
Jump on down to 1 Hardy Rd, Yarraville to help the Bikes4Life crew load the next container that’s heading to Papua New Guinea THIS SUNDAY. We’ve helped collect bikes from our awesome customers and now they’re ready for their new lease on life. They just need a hand getting them in the container.
You’re probably already aware, but we have some new products in store from some brilliant minds. Input BMX and Stay Local Co are producing the goods for your tasty needs. Go check out the goodness in our online store.
This gets me excited for the Riding Way BMX Road Trip coming up fast in November. I’m getting so pumped for our journey and suppliers have also started to send out some prizes and give-aways for everyone who joins us… Are you coming? Get pumped and watch this…
Smooth sound track including the use of one of my favourite groups, Ruby Velle & the Soulphonics. Get down….
Austin, Texas was the destination for our most recent Flybikes trip. Kevin, Ruben, Stefan, Shane, Devon, Joseph and Kevin Kalkoff all headed to the live music capital of the world for 10 days of hanging with good friends and amazing riding sessions hitting up famous spots as well as some awesome unknown gems. We hope you enjoy this as much as the team did making it. Continue reading →
Adam Stone is one of the guys who has been a good friend to Riding Way since before the very beginning. He thinks differently and looks at BMX in a refreshingly unique way. We helped him get onto the Australian Primo BMX team a while back and he’s just got it out in the world! Definitely worth a look. photo: Gorak
This was one of my favourite times in Australian BMX. I sat watching this classic BMX video section reminiscing on all the good ol’ times with the best people ever. You can even see me getting in the way with a camera in some parts. Check this out…
So on the weekend just past, the Wattle Festival was on which included a Vintage BMX Show. I wasn’t sure if I’d make it out there but just as it wrapped up, my family and I arrived and saw everyone packing up. There were definitely some neat bikes there. A lot of time (and no doubt money) has been poured into these bikes to make them tip top! Be sure to make it down next year kids…
A good friend and customer, Michael, took out ‘Mid School’ of the show. We helped make it happen with our eye for detail on the wheel builds. His is the GT below.
I also got to see a couple of my dream cars. The ’69 Dodge Charger would be that car. You know, the General Lee. Or, the car Dominic Toretto flips in Fast and the Furious. Fricken brilliant car and, if I drive a car again, hopefully this is the one…
Ah the election is coming up, sigh! I hate these things. All the media shows us is two jerks who are fighting to be the coolest cat and win our support to become the big guy who gets our hard earned tax dollars. Well, there are in fact people out there in your area who actually give a damn. Continue reading →
“You may have seen UCI Downhill champ Aaron Gwin tear up an event course, but this is another story. What happens when you take Red Bull mountain bike athlete Aaron Gwin, put him on a Specialized Demo 8 Carbon and film him on an amazing trail in Idyllwild, California?
You get this ridiculous edit, which should be all you need for motivation to blast down a white-knuckle descent of your own. Enjoy the ride…”
It’s the law to wear a helmet when cycling in Melbourne but I don’t think that should be your reasoning behind wearing one. It’s meant to save you from a catastrophic head injury and prevent the brain damage that would follow. When riding a bike, wear a helmet.
If you choose not to, because of how silly it may look perhaps, would this be something you would invest in? Air bags for your head! haha.
It’s not cyclists that are the problem on our roads, but it’s not the cars and trucks either. Really, in my opinion, we should all just work together on providing a safe environment for all of us. One of my gripes is riding, walking or travelling in any way with earphones securely embedded in one’s ears, blocking all types of audio from the world around us. I feel this is the most unsafe way to travel and frustrates me immensely. I like to listen for approaching cars and trucks and simply cannot do this with music blasting in my ears and, the earphones I use, like most people’s, are noise cancelling so outside noise won’t destroy my music. But there are other ways in which we can lift the level of safety, for cyclists, pedestrians and motorists alike. Spotted on the Amy Gillett website, download a ‘Sharing the Roads and Paths’ helpful safety guide HERE.
If you cycle to work, for fitness, for fun or if you drive a car, truck or DeLorean, have a read of this helpful guide.
OK, here it is! WE LOVE RIDING BIKES, and we love riding bikes with all of our customers, young, old and anywhere in between so we’re organising some ‘Let’s Ride Initiatives’ on almost every weekend in SPRING 2013. We have BMX Bowl Jams for the tricksters, easy, bike path rides for the family and longer road rides for those that love a bit of lycra. Come on down and join us on some rides. We’d love to share the experience with you! See all the flyers after the jump. Continue reading →
