As a follow up to our last Ode To Junk Food post, Toronto’s Leland Nightingale sent through his story of BMX road trip indulgence:
We (Leland Nightingale, Patrick Krzyzanowski, ‘Miami’ Mike Broff) have been going to Ft Lauderdale, Florida for four years now every winter before xmas (to ride) and each and every day we have Taco Bell once (or twice) sometimes for breakfast and we always go to this same grimey pizza joint (Downtown Pizzeria or DTP) for late night slices once a day. Its pretty gross but its the way she goes.
BMX brothers are nothing new. Lots of brothers grow up riding together. Brothers that have a passion for both BMX and photography however is rare. Scott (left) and Trent (right) Barker both come from Southern Ontario, ride bikes, and shoot photos constantly. I asked them both a few questions about themselves, their work, and their favourite photos. Click below to see more.
This is footage that was shot during the 09/10 indoor season. Originally we were filming for a couple other projects that didn’t work out in the end, that combined with my own laziness has kept this footage away from the public until now.
Guest riders: Cory Clarke, Corey Dewey and Kean Fougere.
