20 Aug Embassy Oregon Part I: Jason Vawter’s Photos

Tables

In July, 15 of us packed a bunch of cars up and took a trip deep into Oregon. We take a trip like this every year and make a point to go somewhere new each time. The trip featured veterans like Alaskan wildman David Clay and newcomers like Dave Butler and Caleb Ruecker (along with many names that you’ll recognize from this site over the years). We bombed hills, roasted magnesium in the campfire, hung out on the dunes, waited on the side of the highway with a broken down minivan and rode some of the weirdest and wildest skateparks the Northwest has to offer.

We’ve got a good amount of content coming from this trip, and up first is a gallery shot by Jason Vawter. Jason shot so many great photos that we’ve left them in a gallery on Flickr for easy viewing. Check the gallery out HERE.

23 Jun The Sandlot

DSC_1394

Many years ago, when asked about his crew of Kelowna locals, Mat Ridgeway described his scene and the website that documented it (BK!) as “our Sandlot”. An apt description, as they’ve been a group of guys who really encompass the spirit in that movie. To kick off the summer, we filled this past weekend with both BMX and baseball. Check out a few photos after the jump.

Another gem from Braeden.

“CLICK 720p. Its hard to carbon date dust. Emptied my old camera and put this together while my leg is broken. Good friends all around. Some of this has already been in the heavy hitter videos but I don’t think they would mind seeing alternate angles. Ride a BMX.

Riders (in order of appearance): Travis McLelland, Cory Amisano, Andy Roode, Mick Bayzand, Corey Clarke, Taylor Ross, Brent Webb, Cam MacCallum, Ben MacPherson, Carl Arnett, Nick Lindstrom, Chris Smith, Matt Thomas, Ronnie Nickerson, Dylan Cameron, Jordan Hango, Dave Lalibert√©, Jeff Evans, Mat Ridgeway, Matt Desson, Jason Vawter, Lucas Lundy, Jason Enns, Jeff Kemp, James Chevy1500, Ryan Hiebert.”

27 Jun Two Kooks Spotted

Back in May we posted about out friends Patrick and Leland cycling across Canada. Shortly after, Jason Vawter sent us this photo he shot when he spotted the pair stopping in Hedley, BC for a water refill. He had noticed Leland’s Embassy hat attached to his panniers and remembered our original post about their trip. By now they have made their way clear across central Canada, and even stopped in Winnipeg and borrowed bikes from our web tech Cory Beal to do a little bit of BMX riding for a change. They should be on schedule to head in to northern Ontario, so keep your eyes out if you live in the eastern half of the country as you might spot them. Make sure you follow both Pat and Leland on their blogs.
