Rain was the name of the game during my time in Illinois, but it didn't stop Adam and I from making the best of it. In between all the bad weather we got a quick session in at the Big Marsh Bike Park in the South side of Chicago before I met up with Max Mandell and his crew to head out to the Motorcross of Nations at Red Bud for the weekend.


From Illinois, I made my way down towards Brown County and randomly met up with Katie Holden for a ride before heading further south to O'bannon Woods. At O'bannon I met up with Taylor Ladd, Jake Szybowski and his dog Tanic for a solid day of shredding before making my way into Kentucky.


From Indiana, I followed Jake and Tanic into the Louisville, Kentucky area to ride the Silo Center Bike Park and check out the insane skatepark in town. From there, I made my way up North to Covington to meet up with Tom Holaday for a rip down the Devou Park Trails. Although I had a few days of bad weather I was stoked on what I did get to ride and the people I met along the way!

The next states up are Ohio, New York & Vermont. You can follow the adventure through my Instagram & Youtube channel with a new video every week.

Cheers from the road!

 Rad, These videos definitely don't do the trails any justice. My parents just moved to Kentucky from So-Cal and having been out there twice now and riding both times I was surprised at how many trails there are for MTB. I live on the central coast of Cali so used to step, rocky and loose so it was fun to ride flow, tacky/ wet dirt in the trees.

When its to wet to ride they have the Mega cavern underground bike park that any skill level will have a blast riding. Its like 200,000 sq ft of bike park underground.
