Pennsylvania

From New Jersey we made my way East into Pennsylvania to meet up and ride with Nate Bargiel and Josh McLeod at their local freeride zone. After a solid day with the guys we made our way South for a ride at the FDR Skatepark and a good ol' classic Philly cheesesteak.






Delaware, D.C. & Maryland

When I started this trip my goal was to always to make a video from each State but unfortunately we were hit by a huge storm during our weeks in Delaware, D.C. & Maryland so we decided to make the best of it and tie it all into one video. Luckily we ran into some cool folks along the way that made this portion of the trip memorable. Huge thanks to Evan, Brendan and the Busta Moves family for the good times!






Virginia

From Maryland we made our way down to Harrisonburg, Virginia to check out Reddish knob. This was a spot we heard is a must hit but quickly discovered that the area had been hit by the same storm that shut us down in Maryland. Fortunately, the sun was out with the snow melting so it made for a fun ride down Timber and Wolf Ridge. From Harrisonburg we made our way down to Roanoke to meet up with Wes Bailey and check out some of his local trails out at Carvins Cove. After a rip down OG into Gauntlet, the stoke was high!




The next states up are West Virginia, Tennessee & North Carolina. You can follow the adventure through my Instagram & Youtube channel with a new video every week.

Cheers from the road!

 Sooo many missed trails in VA and Frederick, but no worries! Let's keep these gems secret for a little while longer.

 Reddish knob is one of the best shuttle runs in virginia for sure, but it seems like they missed out on a ton of other stuff out near Harrisonburg

 Taking the hour to climb it opens even more doors; that road climb is a gateway to gnarnia.

 @ZzzzingZing: at the top of briery branch if you turn right onto the gravel instead of left to the knob theres tons of awesome trails - deathstar is one of the best in the area I think

 Hopefully someday someone finds my lines around the woods in Rock Creek Park in DC

 I’m only an hour or 2 from there and am always looking for new spots to explore, any hints on finding you lines?!

 Hmmm...yes a hint would be nice! I live in Falls Church but ride around DC for fun when it's too wet to hit the trails.

 Where are they in Pennsylvania? I don't know that area, as I assume they are in the Lehigh Valley area?
