Yep, first Lemmy, then Bowie and now the Ninja. Cripes. Yes sorry, its the end of my Ninja series for good. OK well at least until maybe I do a final, final best of episode, like a weird comeback tour of one date, appreciated only by goths and stalkers. But otherwise that's it, no more. I'll be 100% shooting stills photos for the time being again, until at least I find a new sponsor for some other fresh film ideas I have. But thanks for appreciating them while they were running! Its been a blast.

Yep secretcompass.com sorted the logistics for this one just like our afghan trip with Matt Hunter 2 years ago. Great company to go with - they live and breathe adventure.

Video and Photo Epic: Five Tips for Riding Ethiopia's Simien Mountains
Good idea though in fact I do slideshows from such trips and donate the proceeds to those kind of charities. My shows have paid for 130 bikes through Hans Rey's Wheels4life and the last couple years my Afghan Matt Hunter trip slideshows have donated to build schools in Afghanistan through Central Asia Institute. My latest Ethiopia trip slideshow was seen by the U.K.'s dep ambassador to Ethiopia who thought it was the best advert for the country she'd ever seen. Go to these places. Touris dollars help. See them for yourselves and try to make a difference. I write this from Nepal after going photographing for the Nepal Tiger Trust NGO.

Shooting remote travel stories means I've had this discussion many times. I think the discussion is about rich and poor and capitalist world economy that can only exist with this wealth gap not whether we take our western toys to 'poor' countries. In my view the bike breaks down barriers on these trips, our money gives employment and both locals and visitors emerge with a new idea on the world. You don't have to go far in the uk to find somewhere the locals can't afford a £500 bike let alone a £4000 one but we ride in the uk. I'm not romantic and know I'm privileged but on such trips the value of our bikes is irrelevant to us and the locals. Here's a similar discussion previously: https://danmilner.wordpress.com/2010/07/07/unleash-the-tirade-is-there-still-a-place-for-travel-focused-features-or-should-we-all-just-ride-the-local-pump-track/

This is where Olly Wilkins learnt the art of hike-a-bike. He instantly bonded with the sport and now prefers to carry his bike up to his London flat instead of using the elevator. He lives on the 7th floor.

Thanks, A man, rather than 'the man' perhaps. That said yes I do still ride Fox shocks, not least 'cos thats what usually come fitted on my Yetis and to date they have carried me though a lot of banging' adventures without a mishap, up, down and across a lot of places. So I guess I am still kinda happy with them. They work, or do for me. Make sense? A proof of the pudding kind of idea. But whatever the shock, the principle is the same. Set it up right and go and ride your bike. :-)
