When it rains you have to go search for a dry place to ride. One of those places is the Sportgarten in Bremen, Germany. Although it is closed in the cold wintermonths (it is covered but still semi outdoors) the roof protects most of the ramps when it gets wet and nasty. The ramps take some getting used to but that is the same at almost every new spot you go to. For sure it is a good place for a session as the ramps that are available should offer something for everyone. It even has a vert ramp, something you do not see around all too often.
This Area 51 spot is a 15 minute drive from where I live. I had never been there until today. The reason is that they don't allow bikes there and I just can't understand that way of thinking. I hate to support anything like it. The Urban Sports week was held next door so I had to peek in. It was hard to explain Philip that he was not
As far as I can remember I started going to the Eurobike show in 1989. The last couple of years on my way there I noticed this little skatepark on the side of the road not far from Friedrichshafen but every time I was either in a hurry, did not have my bike with me or it rained. But not this time. After 7 hours of driving I was treating myself to a little session at Immenstaad skatepark. It's fenced off but open to all who want to use it. I believe they built right; some concrete,
The RedBull backyard digger program helped out three towns this summer and one of them was Zoetermeer. While in the area we decided to check out the venue. It was right next to Snowworld so easy to get to. Once at Snowworld we followed the "Fietscrossbaan" signs and the newly built trails were right next to it. But the track was so much fun that for 30 minutes we did not even check out the trails! Noone was riding the spot so it was hard to see how the spot worked from a little distance. Once closer the jumps were BIG! Some sections are still under construction or need a bit of shaping but the
It is sunny today and it is hot but tomorrow can be a whole different story. But fear you not. Wuppertal is opening up an indoor place tomorrow which looks amazing. The park section is finished and the bowl section will be done on 23 October. Christoph Hager and his crew have done a great job here. Nothing else to do on Monday
The Red Bull Backyard Digger’s last stop greets a dream spot in Doetinchem. In three days time the local Dirtbikers and BMXers, together with the international Red Bull Backyard Digger Team, and built a professional dirt spot with lines suitable for different levels. On Tuesday the 12 of august at 15.00 the Alderman of the municipality Koos Kuiper together with Huup Hakvoort founder of SFA (Stichting Freeride Achterhoek) opened the spot. The Red Bull DJ
Scene report: Sheep Hills While in the Huntington Beach area we had to check on two dirt jump spots. One being Hidden Valley and the other being Sheep Hills. These trails have been a place of many sessions in the SoCal area. I was not sure about the situation at Hidden Valley. I knew about a petition to keep it alive but I had also heard it got plowed. But sometimes these spots get back up in
Over the years I have been to California quite a bunch of times. I love it there. The HSA gave me an opportunity to come back out and I grabbed that chance with both hands. During the US Open of Surfing in Huntington Beach we wandered around taking some photos left and right. Yes, with all those people around you will run into some freaks left and right but that's the same at home when you go to any festival. The plusses about HB are the sunshine, the waves, happy people and the convenience of having food and fun places
