5 days, 617 miles, 8 trains, 2 riders, 1 missing tent pole, 143 beers, and 1 hell of a time!
The concept for this trip was pretty simple; catch a train from London to Cornwall, ride some bowls, camp along the way and have a good time. We started off from London Waterloo Station and headed down to Penzance (Cornwall) on the Friday. We had a rough idea of where we wanted to go so worked our way around a few towns and parks for the next few days using nothing but trains and pedal power whilst camping and sleeping where we could until we ended up on the edge of Cornwall in Saltash and caught the train back on the Tuesday.

After close to two-years of C*vid-induced isolation, it was time to get the band back together. The plan? Assemble at Clint’s compound to shred the Bear Bowl and roast Northeastside, then jump in the bus to head to PA for the Posh/Catty Jams, followed by a final leg at 9 Acres and adjacent dirt churches. The result? A trip for the books. With Stew Johnson behind the camera and Clint Reynolds, Mike “Hucker” Clark, Matty Aquizap, James “P” Nutter, Ever Peacock and Lukas, Nate and Shane Halahan in front of it… a (dare we say it) instant classic is born. Huge shouts to the entire Northeast trail community for the hospitality and BMX in general for the stoke. Dirt Rules!
