“Burrito and the Lightningbolt” by Benedict Campbell and Autumn Spadaro

This really awesome film maker/photographer Benedict Campbell and his assistant Autumn Spadaro put together a lovely short film about my friend Dani (aka Danilightningbolt) and I (aka Nina Burrito). 
What a super cool experience this was, after watching it, I felt so excited and grateful for everything in life, the choices I’ve made, and the people I have met, all connected in some way from two wheels bicycles or motorcycles. This film helped me to remember how I got here, and to slow down and appreciate all that we have here in Austin. 💙  what a great job Ben and Autumn, thank you! Please feel free to share this work of art.

Labor Day weekend gimp update??

This past weekend I am pretty sure there was a full moon out..

“it’s that time..of the season..”-mommas and the papas

I worked every night Thursday-Sunday and managed to not Labor on labor day after all. This may have been one of the busiest weekends all summer, we were really busy and I love when it’s busy!! More tips and more live-drunken dancing-on-the-stage entertainment at Shakespeare’s.
I had a few high noon 100+degree sessions at house park, where I ran into Francis, local kid I heard about having “shit luck” over the years. This time he was cruisin around with two broken wrists!! “who wants to Ride some trails?!” I can’t believe this kid. Poor guy..I was introduced to Francis last year sometime as the “kid who got shot in the ass by some local thugs while he was riding a ditch.” and now this:

Get well Soon dog!
I also had the pleasure of riding at 9th street here and there over the weekend! If there even was a missing link in the good vibes of the Austin scene, it was the ninth street trails! They are mostly running again, making for a great time just before sundown everyday there! The bugs, absolutely love me, so I re-upped my bug repellent stash. The shelves of the local grocery where all the Off! is were looking pretty bare after news reports that there is a strong presence of the west Nile Virus in surrounding areas of central Austin :/ yikes! If you are hittin’ the trails, be prepared people! Douse yourselves in that Deet! Haha

Here we have even more gimps, in the heckler section: Andy Martinez coming off of a broken ankle.. And girl Dani with a broken tibia kickin it next to “slacker” line at 9th

I have still yet to upload some of the action shots from the weekend…
However I want to put a HUGE reminder to everyone reading this, “PLEASE SHARE THE ROAD and WATCH OUT FOR CYCLISTS!!”

After a fun weekend of riding, I got a phonecall that my buddy, Joe Bob Montgomery, was hit by a truck yesterday on his way into work. :/

He is in the hospital with a broken back, surgery still pending, no health insurance, and as it turns out, the incident was a hit and run! This makes my blood boil..
He is in good spirits though, hangin tough! Healing vibes Holmes!

The impact was so crazy his bike is mangled, pedal and seat melted, grips all shredded, headset all jacked, I’m pretty sure the frame and forks are twisted too :/
