True, this is Jamaica. But Jamaica is so much more than this… After travelling excessively for the last 20 years I've made it half way into the TCC, the Travellers' Century Club. 54 countries to be exact. And still I'm sometimes catching myself judging the book by its cover. Jamaica is the perfect example. Just give me three words you instantly connect with the Caribbean island and you'll see what I mean…
People have made it hard for us too, there isn't a single (bike) video out there without reggae, the flag will always remind us of Bob Marley and the only thing we know about the blue mountains is that they produce some fine coffee.
I'm sorry for not using Reggae in my video, I want you to open your eyes to more than the three words you connect with Jamaica. Endless singletrack through tropical rainforest, people who overcome huge obstacles to live their dream, inspirational BMX teachers and trail builders.
Jamaica is one awesome place to ride.Everyday I'm shuttlin', wild but working. Shuttles 25 bikes in one go… A girl. On a bike. Incredible! A Blue Mountain day is a good dayIt's Jerk chicken time, any time. Bikes, nature and a puppy, couldn't be happier. Accommodation Robinson Crusoe styleBob Marley was here. And U2 of course… Countless moments of music history.Strawberry Hills. Maybe the most beautiful view over JamaicaSummit to the sea in 3, 2, 1 … Oracabessa Foundation
