Come join Santa and his trusty reindeer for a quick romp through Central Oregon. This is my (Trevor Lyden) first attempt at venturing out from the realms of professional photography and exploring the world of video.

While we severely ran out of time and only filmed for one afternoon, I thought it would be good to spread some holiday cheer and hopefully get a chuckle or two. Thanks to Santa (Austin Hemperley) and the Reindeer (Kate Meyer). Happy Holidays Pinkbike friends.

It s a little known fact that Santa practices at skateparks so that he can fly all the way to you.

 Well done! If I had to critique anything about the video it would be some of the shots where there riders leave the frame could be cut a little sooner, that being said it's a great first attempt!!

 @trevorlyden: Stoked to see the next one! I have been working on adding really subtle sounds effects, in this some low key jingle bells would work good.

 @ATBScott: if you like bend, you should REALLY check out Boise. It's WAY cooler. I hear they just got a 10 Barrel.

 @toddbag: the riding scene in bend is already shitty, we don't need to be openly advertising the one legit spot

 @toddbag: way cooler and they just got a 10 barrel (a Bend brewer)?? OK

 @trevorlyden: take it up with trailforks. And your local bike shops. All these areas are blatantly advertised. Everywhere. In every shop in town. By everyone who rides.
