Thank you for taking the time to read about our plight. Our spot is called Hidden Valley and is located in Huntington Beach, CA. You may have seen it in hundreds of BMX and MTB photos over the past 12 years. Hidden Valley consists of 2 downhill dirt jump lines in a wildlife type area or what can be considered one in the middle of a sprawling beach town. Our problems seem to stem from the homeless people who live in the bush and the local kids who come here to drink and party in the area surrounding our trails, and the fact that the authorities do very little to keep the homeless from setting up camp.

John "Mercury" Morgan grew up in the early 1970's in Rochester, New York. Like most kids of that era, John became fascinated with Evel Knievel. John's goal was to make stunt riding his life. His mother would not allow him to get a motorcycle, so he stuck to bicycles. Morgan practiced everyday popping wheelies and jumping over anything he could. He ended up working in the Ringling Bros circus for three years jumping elephants after coming down from a ski-style ramp. Enjoy these pics of Morgan (not Morgan Wade).
