Good to see a BMX video feature a lot of trails in. The new Backbone video is out and you can order it from Canyoudigitbmx. Definitely check this out and don’t forget about the Credence video that came out which has tons of trails in it. If the weather is good come ride the trails on the weekend.
Pretty cool photos from recent sessions. Jim Trocchio took them, he doesn’t even ride he’s just interested in shooting riding photos which is cool. Super nice weather now its good to enjoy the trails. For all the people wondering about young kids coming to ride, the trails are meant for more expert riders. Were hoping to get a permanent pump track in Catty where young kids can learn and ride much smaller stuff to get them ready to ride bigger things. People are welcome to come check the trails out but remember its not a playground and can be dangerous so know the risks.
Damm this summer has not been sweet, tstorms on the daily. This week forecast looks good for once so if you wanna ride come out this weekend and lets get some laps in at Catty and Posh. The flat bottoms are pretty wrecked from all the rain as well, so need some help dialing. Just seen Deluxe new site which is pretty sweet, check out the video below.
Weather has been crazy lately, jam at Catty on Sunday was sweet but sucked we couldn’t get to ride Posh. I think everyone on the east coast is getting fed up with the rain. You don’t get rain when you need it and when you don’t need rain thats all it seems to do. I hate to complain but when you get 2 actual rain days in the spring when you actually need it and now when you just wanna ride it rains for 24 out of the last 30 days its pretty shit. Big thanks to everyone who did come out and help get the trails going. We were all talking and said if we get more weekends like that we can ride more. So this weekend the forecast looks good so were hoping to get Posh running, so don’t be shy and come down lend a hand. Just from everyone being around this weekend you can see what can be done with so many people. Posh is hoping to do a big proper jam in August so stay tuned for that. More people just need to come around on the weekends, I remember Minersville back in the day it didn’t have to be a jam but any weekend you went there the trails were packed and it was always a good time. That needs to happen again we got tons of jumps at Catty and Posh lets make it a good weekend anytime it isn’t raining. Freeze pops for everyone….
Lately I have seen quite a few trailers with BMX in them, now Im not sure how much BMX will be in these movies, but its pretty cool to see. I know some people wanna slam these movies, but you cant please everyone. I helped work on Heroes of Dirt so you might think Im biased, but give all these movies a chance, in the end its only good for BMX. All the trailers are below so if you get a chance check the movies out if you can, some will be easier to see but the more demand these get the easier it will be for more people to see. Also check back for updates on the jam, hopefully the weather is good but if we keep getting rain we might have to push back the jam. Stay tuned..
We had a great turn out at the Catty Iron Works jam, thanks to everyone who helped build the pump track. Pretty cool to see how the town of Catasauqua supports BMX. 4th of July is creeping up and will be here before you know it. It lands on a Saturday this year which is pretty good, so Im sure most people have off Friday so come lend a hand at Catty or Posh to help get the trails running, still a decent amount of work to be done, the drought really set us back. So Saturday the 4th is the jam at Catty, will have the grill running, shirts for sale, and other random stuff going on. Jam at Posh the next day so a great weekend of BMX in the woods. Big thanks to are sponsors and everyone who donates and buys shirts to keep the trails running.
After a historic run of barely any rain in the spring we finally got a bunch. All the water holes are filled and the dirt is prime for dialing. We definitely need help on the weekends so come down and lend a hand so we can ride sooner rather then later. We shouldnt have to be dialing jumps in June but this weather is so crazy anymore and it was too dry to really do anything. At least stuff held up good after winter, it was just really dry and needs a little TLC now. The Catty Blast event is coming up on June 13th, come out and check that out, all the info is on the flyer below. Looking to do the annual 4th of July jam on the 4th of July since it lands on a Saturday and we got this much needed rain to get everything rideable now.
