It was a Friday. We drove about four hours from Zurich that morning. The day before we rode that concrete pump track crossed with Gorge rd type thing, and also the amazing bowl across the road from it. Chester, Adam, Craig and myself. After camping in the rain next to a lake the previous night it was good to catch up with Steph.
BMX together with travel, I like to think has always been an important part of this blog. BMX is a passport to take you anywhere. So when I see riders from our country at the bottom of the world making moves internationally, using the advantages and privileges of BMX travel, I can say for certain that I get stoked.
Joe Simpson put this rad little guide together on how to travel with your bike & keep in under 23kg. You can check it out here: chuckitinbmx.tumblr.com
I also did a post a few years back recommending using a golf bag. I’m not sure if it really matters these days but golf bags used to be the favourite for travelling BMXers.
This is the kinda edit I can get into.. travel, shredding & good times! John Kelly, Ross Drummett and Josh Norton take an adventure through South East Asia to ride some tasty bowls!
