The last leg of our New York trip landed us at Dah Shop in New York City. It was a good turnout and we came up on a litle sidewalk space in between 4 lanes of traffic right down the street to set up a flat rail, some grind boxes, and a bunnhop bar. It was rad riding with the locals, Tyrone, and even some New York legends were in attendance as well. Thanks to Dah Shop for having us and everyone who came out and had a good time! Here’s a ton of photos from the day by Zachary Honahan and Myself. Click to expand gallery.

Here’s a pretty hefty blog update for you guys from our travels in the deepest depths of Long Island to the crusty streets of NYC. In a nutshell, the city has been good to us and we’ve spent the last few days pedaling around downtown & hitting spots uptown in search of all those great clips that make us happy.

So we’re here in the big apple for the next 6 days with the likes of Broc Raiford, DeMarcus Paul, and of course New York resident Billy Perry. This trip is primarily to wrap up filming for our next video project, plus some product promo stuff, and some bike shop visits as well. If you live in the area, you can catch us Tuesday at Vicious Cycle, and Wednesday at Dah Shop. Until then follow along with our daily blog updates, and on Insta with #VLMNYC.

Here’s some more photos from the final day of our trip which we spent riding tons of amazing & untouched spots in Josh’s hometown. In fact it was actually the most productive day of the entire trip! Josh’s dad was also out and about with us all day, and came away with a new appreciation for all the hard work that goes into getting even just one clip. Thanks again to Josh’s dad and the rest of the Clemens family for their hospitality. Click to expand gallery. Photos by Devin Feil.

Yesterday we left Portland and made the trek back down south to visit Josh’s Dad’s shop GonRacin BMX in Klamath Falls. The Clemens family recently re-purposed their old backyard mini ramp materials into various ledges and rails which now inhabit the shop parking lot, so kids were really hyped to ride that stuff with us. Josh’s family also came thru with tons of pizza and a giant 6 foot long subway sandwich. We stuffed our faces, did a little hop contest, played footdown, threw out some product, then went up to the local skatepark to ride for the rest of the afternoon. Huge thanks to the Clemens family for having us at the shop, and also for putting us up in their house too! Photos by Devin Feil. Click to expand gallery.

Yesterday we had our much anticipated shop stop at Goods BMX, a staple in the Portland BMX scene. It was a solid turnout and it was also rad to see so many kids from the Gresham shop come hang for this one too. We rode the flat rail, played footdown, threw out TONS of freebees, and signed posters & DVD’s for everyone too. Thank you everyone who came out and special thanks to all around great dude Shad for having us! Goods times. Click to expand gallery. Photos by Devin Feil.

After our bike shop obligations the day before, it was nice to have a full day of filming to ourselves as it was also our final full day here in Portland. We used the day to get back to some spots for unfinished business, tie up some loose ends, and do eveeryone’s favorite thing – ride some uncharted territory. Here’s Day 8 at a glance by Devin Feil.

We had a great time stopping by Gresham Bicycle Center yesterday and hanging with all the local kids. We played BIKE, had a race, did some games of foot-down, tossed out some prouct, signed bikes & posters, and finally had a late afternoon session at the local skatepark. Thanks again to everyone for coming out and Gresham Bicyles for having us! Photos by Devin Feil.

Day 6 started off at a rad DIY jersey barrier spot tucked away in a residential neighborhood. We warmed up there for a while then spent the majority of the rest of the day in & out of the van scoping out potential setups. Even though school is out for the summer, it seemed like most of them still had functions going on. We did end up getting a couple clips in the bag tho, then we spent the remaining daylight hours exploring the deepest depths of Portland’s industrial areas. Photos by Devin Feil.
