ACRE Supply // The Guide To Getting Lost

AM_GTGL_FRA-140625-1262-Edit“The only advice our guide Ash left us with last night was to stay away from the Pyrenees Mountain dogs that guard the sheep in this region. So when Lyle was attacked this morning, everyone suddenly took Ash’s warning a lot more seriously. Lyle is shaken, but ok. His kit is ruined though. Hopefully we don’t run into any on the trail.” 

I love living vicariously through stories like this and ACRE Supply seems to have an endless amount of them. One of the many reasons I’ll sign off on supporting them every day of the week.

Cheers guys!! Thanks for sharing this radness.

These are a few of my favorite photos of the bunch. Go to ACRE Supply and read the entire write up on “The Guide To Getting Lost”. I promise you’ll be inspired.

Levi’s x VSCO // #Commuter Round 2

I had a blast shooting this spot! It’s really close by the local skate park I’ve been to a million times but never knew it existed. Chris blends in quite nicely with the environment which was a big plus on these snaps.

Thanks for following along. I hope you’re enjoying these simple iPhone photos using the new Levi’s #Commuter x VSCO LV3 Preset. The LV3 Preset just got released for a free download. Go take advantage of that! Cheers!

Levi’s x VSCO // #Commuter Round One

I’ve had the pleasure of pushing my personal limits using an iPhone and the new VSCO Levi’s preset (LV3) to shoot Chris Rost in all of his BMX radery for the Levi’s x VSCO #commuter collaboration.

Follow along this week as I continue to show how rad BMX and commuting fit together. The sky’s the limit… and I mean that literally. Enjoy!

Cannondale x Death Spray Custom

2014 Tour de France - Cannondale Custom Bikes

Cannondale & DSC have teamed up to create the livery of their 2014 TDF cycles. Each rider has their spirit animal adorned on their TT in a style akin to native American Haida style. Go Green.

These are absolutely insane! Ever since my favorite local bicycle shop started carrying Cannondale I’ve been eyeballing all of their go fast machines. This collaboration with Death Spray Custom knocks it out of the park!! Ride x Create in its truest form!!

Go to Death Spray Custom’s blog and check out the rest of the Cannondale’s Team paint jobs. So. SOLID!

State Bicycle Co. // Undefeated 2015

State Undefeated2I’ve loved watching the progression of State Bicycle Co. and their transition into higher quality (still affordable) rides!  The 2015 Undefeated is looking pretty sweet. Can’t wait to see how many races will be won on this speed machine.

Go to State Bicycle Co. and check out all the rad photos of this machine in action. Here are a few of my favorite.

Mr. Drew Potter

photoLet me introduce Mr. Drew Potter. This fella may not mean a hill of beans to you fine folks but let me explain why he’s on this fine site of ours.

I’ve known Drew for 16 years and he’s been pushing limits from day one. He’s rode for Creature Skateboards, currently living in Chris Senn’s old house, been featured in Thrasher Magazine, ridden all up and down the California cost via bicicleta (surfboard/camp gear in tow) and officially sat on my face from a rock climbing incident (I saved this man’s life…most likely. I caught him after falling about 12 feet to be impaled by some gnarly rocks).

He’s one hell of a good fella, currently working in San Francisco making sure the Earth continues to grow in a healthy manner. When I think of the Ride x Create vibe I always come back to his story and all the things he’s accomplished.

It’s always good to show appreciation for people that inspire you. I hope you get pumped on this fine weekend. Go out and explore. Don’t worry about things that limit you. You are in control of your limitations. Accept failure, learn from it, and push on to make rad things happen.

Stay positive, Ride x Create

I love how progressive State Bicycle Co. is. This promo vid really nails the love of being powered by one fixed gear speed machine. Gets me pumped. I hope we’re on the same same level.

Go to State Bicycle Co. and check out the 2015 Undefeated. Enjoy
