Vans invited me to a BMX Pro Cup event in Stuttgart, Germany. With a free trip on my hands I decided to try and make the travel interesting by turning it into a little adventure. I convinced Chris Cotsonas from Fairdale Bikes to come with me. I know he likes riding bikes in the Alps since he took me there for the first time a few years ago (Bicycling Magazine Fairdale France trip). Our plan was to ride “Over the Alps” and then pick up the Rhine River Cycleway. This is a popular cycling route that follows the Rhine River from its start high in the mountains, across Europe, and all the way to the Atlantic Ocean. We wouldn’t be able to ride the entire route, but our goal of making it to Stuttgart was not too far off the trail, and it seemed achievable.More

Taj Bikes in the Wild April 16, 2016
We built the Taj to be a bike you can comfortably sit down and cruise on but also have some BMX fun. It combines the simple toughness of a BMX bike with the ability to go for a cruise too!

Sandy Carson’s WE WERE THERE April 13, 2016
Personally I would be terrified to name a book this. There is so much potential for my grammar challenged brain to screw this up… WERE, We’re, where, there, their, they’re…. Anyway, I think Sandy Carson got this right. WE WERE THERE is a photo book from his unique perspective inside the photo pits at all different sorts of music shows. The photos are really fantasic… Sandy is such a master of catching candid moments. Check out more over on Sandy’s site SandyCarson.com and we highly recommend picking one up here.
