After a 90-100 mph drive from Huntington Beach to Oceanside, it took me almost and hour or so to get to a Sunny Oceanside.. It rained just yesterday and my schedule at work hasn't really allowed me to ride in the last couple weeks, so maybe that's why I was ignoring the speed limit to finally get on my bike and have at least a good session on some ramps.
I found out about this park through my friend Mike Jarboe (artist friend and flatlander), who lives down here. So I took a mission and

Here's the March newsletter from the HARO camp:
- Brian Blyther is aboard a retro HARO Sport and likes it.
- Stefan Geisler has received a HARO flatland bike to get his flatland groove on. This way he doesn't have to change his vert bike set-up when he gets called in for a flat demo.
- Dave Mirra has been working on triple tailwhip jumps.
- The name of the new HARO tire is the Joe Dirt tire and here are the specs:
Round one of the Soulcycle XL series had some damn good riding going on. If you want to see more than just the Expert and Pro class photos that we posted earlier this week, click the following link. Bart Cautaerts from Belgium made a video clip of the (pro) action. Enjoy.

Achim Kujawski is inviting 10 vert riders and some media for a session on the indoor RedBull ramp at a secret location in Oberhausen, Germany. The fact that it is so secret has to do with the space that is left after the ramp has been installed. That space is very limited.
There will be a welcome session on Friday April 8th from around 16:00 to 18:00. Saturday is the main thing, session from 12:00 to 18:00 with a highest air around 16:30.
Alan Foster wasn't kidding when he announced weekly FELT BMX news. Here's the latest:
-AA Pro racer Paulie Lange went on a road trip up north for some riding last week and ran into flow rider Rob Jensen. It is funny to think that AA Pro racer Paulie is riding around riding the same stuff as a hardcore street rider like Rob. Rob is a new guy on the flow team from Arcata, CA, really cool guy that loves riding his bike. Last month he was tired of all the rain that CA was getting so him and a few friends packed up and spent a week in Hawaii. Low budget style, riding all day and sleeping on the beach at night. Sounded like a really fun trip.
-Felt and Scotty Cranmer just got finished designing a new handlebar that will be available before summer. Scotty has been ridinga set for a few weeks and everything is good. 7" rise, 8.5 degree sweep and made out of the new 9 butted chromoly making them super
It's not so much of a problem here in Europe but Northern America faces serious shit where BMX bikes are not allowed in the public skateparks. To help change that, several volunteers are doing their best to make people aware that BMX IS NOT A CRIME. Anyway, Dan Haugh over at Transfer BMX is one of the BMX-ers that needs your support. He is collecting petitions so get the bikes in the Sequim park. Visit his site, fill in the form and send it to him. It's a few minutes of your time which isn't too much to ask for if you love riding your bike and want to support BMX. You might end up in Sequim some day.
