It was great to catch up with the girls and ride with the campers! Woodward West totally hooked us up and let us come shred for a few days, wish we had more time to stay longer, this weeks crew was so fun!
Last night I rode the dirt jumps with Cory, Tammy, and all of the BMX campers!!!! Roasting marshmallows after around a bonfire was the jam 🙂

We gave out some product had a couple games of “foot down” this morning

Our last few sessions in Utah were amazing! We got to ride Layton and Matt’s yard again during daylight and then Sandy!
20120623-124729.jpg
On our way out of Utah we had the pleasure of catching up over breakfast with our friend and huge supporter of Yeah Zine, Terry Seeberg. Thank you for breakfast Terry it was a lovely way to start our trip back on the road!!

We made some new friends at a truck stop petting zoo off of I-15 in a town called Scipio:

Random!
But yeah then we stopped by Lindsay’s family’s house where her mom hooked us up with a spread of sandwich items and we made a super nice lunch! Here is Lindsay with her mom holding a plate with a photo of baby Lindsay.

Thanks Linda!
On our way from there we pit stopped in Cedar City to ride with some of Lindsay’s friends, “Indian Greg” and Logan. We had a really fun session at “exit 59” park, mostly small prefab ramps, but with good people who shred and have a sense of humor we had a super fun session.
Here is “Mini Park” doing a tire tap in the mini at the park haha

The cedar City homies:

We the also then stopped at a concrete park in St.George for the last 10min until lights went out on us. Short but sweet!

We were all super tired so we booked an affordable hotel outside of the strip in Vegas, and proceeded to sleep hard! All of the riding in the sun, dehydration and driving it was so nice to catch up on some much needed rest. We just got some more issues of yeah zine printed at kinkos and are on our way to Woodward West in Tehachapi, CA. We will be there through Monday, kicking off the beginning of girls week at Woodward!!!

Here’s a few more photos from Utah..I will be back someday!!

“Sandy” concrete park Where we met Alex Gren, a girl that I’ve always heard about who shreds! the haze above the mountains was from wildfires not too far away. Our van was covered in ashes at the end of our session here.

A closer view of wild fires we could see from I-15 in Saratoga Springs super close to Lindsay’s familys house

Here is a Yeah Zine blog update about the trip we are on for the next 11 days



Salt Lake!!!!!!

20120621-111535.jpg
We got to SLC, and visited “The Wood Shop” an amazing rider-owned bike shop by Cameron Wood.
I got super lucky, he happened to have a 3/8 Profile axle with some extra 14mm adapters to replace the one I broke back in Colorado Springs. Huge thanks to Cam and his buddies Rob Wise and Shawn “Elf” Waters for rigging up my wheel!
This shop is super nice, all of the displays were made by Cam from mostly free pallets and scrap wood found around town.

20120621-113138.jpg

After the Wood Shop, we headed to Matt Beringer’s house to shred his backyard. His roommate, Ethan, hooked us up and took us through the lines, so much fun! It had been a dream of mine to ever get to ride this yard, definitely one of my top favorite backyard set ups ever!

20120621-113617.jpg
In addition to the yard, the garage ramp was a trip as well, totally ramped out. Did some air guitar before we rode it..

20120621-113748.jpg
Afterwards we met up with Redbull homie Fuzzy Hall and his family for dinner, thank you!!

20120621-114337.jpg
We then raced to the Layton Park to catch the last 10min.before the lights went out to shred with a girl rider named Chastity who driven an hour and a half to ride with us!
That was awesome she was stoked I followed her for a run along with every other kid who was trying to get there last runs in. Good times!
Looks like the Hall family acquired a new furry family member, Fuzzy’s daughter Madison couldn’t let go of this stray kitten another rider found running around the fence of the park haha!! Still not sure what they are gonna name him/her, “Tranny” cat? haha

20120621-115057.jpg

This morning we woke up and Lindsay made us breakfast, thanks girl!

20120621-115314.jpg
Then her Angie and I pedaled down to the Tanner trails to scope them out, pretty cool spot!!! Hopefully we can find someone to follow through the lines later today 🙂 the hike back up the mountain was INTENSE!!! Glad I ate three pieces of French Toast for breakfast ha!

20120621-115643.jpg

Thankfully we conquered the hill!!

20120621-115859.jpg

Just loaded the van, picked up Mini and Jess, and now we are headin to the Layton park to ride with Chastity and anyone else who is down! 😄 been a rad day 6 and 7 of the #yeahzinetrip



Driving to SLC!

20120620-064945.jpg
Beautiful sunset view from the Parker bowl.

Denver was awesome, a day and a half is not nearly enough time to see or do a lot but we made the most of it!
I didn’t get to catch up with everyone I wanted to but top person on my list, long time best friend and partner in crime Stacey Mulligan was a highlight!
Stacey is the first other girl rider I met about ten years ago. We moved to Cleveland together, lived kn Pittsburgh together and have traveled the world together. I love that we always manage to catch up somewhere. Magnolia BMX did a recent interview here.
Highlight was getting her back on a bike for her first time in years at the new Arvada Park!! She can still bunny hop and killed the bowl first run like she never missed a beat!!
Old school flick of us from the Chenga days circa 2004

20120620-073905.jpg
It was SO great to see her and get her pumped on riding again!!!!
Here are some pics from a few spots we rode in and around Denver:

My new buddy from Lafayette park Wesley:

New park in Wheat Ridge about to open next week:

20120620-074658.jpg
We rode the Valmont dirt jumps after a few awesome hours at the Boulder Park. It even had a line for Jess!

20120620-074926.jpg

20120620-075011.jpg

20120620-075105.jpg
The bowl at Parker was rad too, unfortunately we didn’t get to film everything we wanted to because the lights went out at 10 and we didn’t get there until 8..amazing park though!

After a rad long day of bikes in Denver, it was time to reload the van did begin our drive to Salt Lake City!!! This will be my first time actually visiting there and not just driving through! And since Lindsay is from SLC she will be our tour guide.

20120620-075347.jpg

20120620-075402.jpg
Here’s out route we started about 6 hours ago ha!

20120620-075920.jpg



Broken Axel and filled with Pizza

20120618-145933.jpg
After driving through the night and sleeping in Pueblo we woke up with the sun and finished the final hour of driving. We made it to Memorial park and had almost the entire place to ourselves!
I’m super bummed I broke my axel mid grind down one of the rails there and rolled my ankle pretty bad. I must have done the rail at least ten times just fine but I guess I’ve just been grinding SO much since I got those hub guards the axel finally blew up.

20120618-150837.jpg 😦

But!! The best part of this crappy situation was that Duncan Gore, Colorado Springs legend and longtime friend came to save the day! He showed up to loan me a spare rear wheel he had until I find another axel. My DK BICYCLES teammate Dane Beardsley showed up with some other flat landers and rode with us. I mainly just took photos since my ankle blew up too

20120618-151320.jpg

Then Duncan hooked it up and took us to Louie’s for Pizza!!! That ruled!! Thanks Dunk! Here’s him with his kiddies 🙂

20120618-151441.jpg

And now we are off to Denver to pick up Jessica Ausec!!! So stoked!!
