Have you ever wondered what it feels like to wash down two dozen Timbits with six litres of sugar free Monster Energy? Do you fantasize about lying to your boss that you're going for a mountain bike ride when you're really going for a gravel ride?
Legally I'm not allowed to give you all sketchy Mini Coopers, but I can
give you the Totally Realistic Mike Levy Riding Experience™ with the Grim Donut video game.
When we started chatting with ASBO about including the Grim Donut in their game Shred! 2, the discussion inevitably escalated into the idea of making a standalone Grim Donut game. In the future I think we definitely need to add a UFO level and a hollow earth level. And maybe some shopping cart bike sounds.
It's been a wild year, and we're glad to have you along for the ride. Merry Christmas and happy holidays from all of us at Pinkbike. All the best in the New Year!
—Brian & the Pinkbike team
Huge thanks to Alex and the crew at ASBO for making this happen. You can learn more about the development of Shred! 2 here. Their main agenda next year will be developing Shred! 3. It’s currently in a very early stage prototype and will feature a fully explorable open 3D world. Check out some super early footage here.
Shred Remastered is available on iOS, Android, Steam, Xbox, PS4 / PS5 and Nintendo Switch.
Shred! 2 - ft Sam Pilgrim is available on iOS, Android, Steam, Xbox, PS4 / PS5 and Nintendo Switch.
Both of ASBO's games are currently on sale on Steam.
Is levy this guys long lost grand child? Can't unsee.
Here's for future riders
I know someone will chime in about how their dirt is different and I'm sure there is a good bit of truth to that. But it is funny how different outlooks can be on doing the same thing...
* Outlook is a big part of it. I remember a road ride group that had as a policy that rides were canceled if the prediction said a >30% chance of rain. On pavement! Back here that would cancel most rides even in summer.
* Type of dirt matters a lot too. I took my MTB & Dutch attitude to a Bay Area regional park in wet conditions. The dirt had a pottery clay like texture that was horrible. Even the sidewalls of my tires were covered in a layer of clay that was limited only by the fork and chainstay width.
Time to hit the slopes by friend!! 120+ inches and counting
I will ride on the road in the rain no problem though.
There's a magical two week period after the rain and before the summer when the moisture level of the clay is just right for digging, but if you go too early the mud will stick to everything in thick globs, go too late and the dirt will have dried to a concrete like hardness.
Just seems like some people have a rain off switch?
@ripridesbikes We have clay I wouldn't ride in wet either. Waiting a few days after a huge storm or driving where the trails drain = much better than not riding all winter...
@ElDebarge to the beat of the rhythm of the night...
. . . when are pre-orders?
“This is the dream!!!”
“This is the best!!!”
“I almost died!!!”
