DHaRCO teamed up with Sean Anderson to release an edit showing the lifestyle and riding in Sydney, Australia. We rented a house near our home on the Northern Beaches, and hit up our favourite local trails.

The video is about life - work hard, play hard. It’s about finishing a day in the office and heading out to meet some friends for a ride, getting loose and ending with a cold beer at the beach. What could be better? This is what we call no ordinary life.

Video made possible thanks to Mondraker Australia, Bliss Protection Australia and Dirt Merch!

Riding Sydney s Northern Beaches - The Aussie Lifestyle

This is the home of DHaRCO and where the light weight, breathable products were born and ultimately designed for. The idea behind the brand is simplicity and a casual laid back style, but with maximum technical capabilities - and it fits well with the laid back lifestyle of riding we enjoy.

The edit shows the heritage of Sydney with natural rock features, ferns, loam and the beach - all part of the local ride scene.

 Loved the use of the natural rock features in those trails. That natural drop to transition slab looks so cool and like it would be fun to ride.

 Everyone don't get your hopes up, no matter how rad these trails look - the offical riding scene in sydney is severely lacking and with recent trail closures, nobody is risking giving the name away. - and it doesn't end on the beach. I know, I was pumped too.

 Well thats one way to promote the local mtb scene.....

 Apprenticeshredder has a point unfortunately. This is one of my favourite local trails, however, after the closure of Warimoo DH, this is one of the few proper downhill trails left in my area, so the riding scene isn't looking promising with the way local councils are acting.

 Well, it doesn't end AT the beach, but it ends pretty damn close to the beach. And there is a micro brewery between it and the beach Smile

Video looks great! Well done guys.

The riding scene is actually pretty damn awesome, it's just not legal. The legal riding scene and the council support is absolute rubbish but if you know who to ask then there are some seriously nice trails out here Smile

 The destruction by Crown Lands dept of similar tracks to these in the Blue Mountains over the last week is extremely disappointing, to say the least. Those are my local runs and I have been riding them from my house for around 20 years. Even the council disagrees with their removal, which is saying something. We now have a job to do, and it's now much harder after a 12tonne excavator has wiped out years of work and maintainence. The mtb community on the northern beaches will need to get organised and negotiate formal access, or run the risk of exactly the same thing happening.

 You fellas need to move to the west of your country. I rode a fair bit in and around Perth and it's amazing.

 However bad the council situation, we all still manage to have a bloody great time riding each week! with tens of kilometers of all mountain trails like this, the only thing you have to do is get out and find people to shred them with! Theres also a great freeride and dirt jump scene to go with it

 I want to thank the academy and all my family for let me be the first comment ... WE DID IT!

 I dont comment much on here but that was some nice riding and editing with great music, its been along time since there has been a clip where i have watched it more than once, great work guys. Sorry to hear your having as many problems as we are up here on the coast with getting these retarded councils to see that mtb is great for people and local trade, so far behind even places like tasmania and i have just seen a artical in NZ where the government is putting 300 million towards biking trails, ok it might not be all for mtb but its better than what we are getting over here. Anyway great edit.

 Lived in Sydney for a bit. Only rode the northern beaches a few times, usually got stuck out west in the blue mountains. What a wicked country to ride in.

 Seems like MGo works primarily with Samsung 4K TV's, ironic as Sony is a title sponsor of the movie! Guess what TV I have...
