11 Jan Top 5 2010 Lists

With 2010 a few days behind us, 2011 is sure to be a big year here at Embassy. Although we didn’t do any kind of best of/ look back list onto 2010 this year, I did see a bunch of sweet ones in the last little while and compiled a quick list of 5 favorites. Look for some sort of Embassy list this time next year.View Post

06 Jan THE MIKE “BOAG” ORITA INTERVIEW/VIDEO

I could give you all the cliché interview introductory gibberish like how he’s an amazing bike rider or how he is a great friend.  That he is always down to help you out, whether it be fixing your bike or helping out when your car breaks down on the side of the road.  Or that he is always there to have a good time.  But I’m not going to because all that should just go without saying.  Mike Boag is the best.

Mike is from southern Alberta and is now (and has been for a long time) a well respected Edmonton local.  He helped run and build the Thorsby ramp park that kept so many of us sane in the winter.  He has helped most of his friends find jobs in the city.  There’s not much he hasn’t done.  And to think…  He doesn’t look a day over 21.  If you didn’t know any better, you would never be able to tell that he is thirty years old.

20 Dec ODE TO JUNK FOOD: TACO BELL

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.
