Save the Kopachuck Trails

The locals of Washington’s Kopachuck Trails are fighting to keep their spot which has been in existence for 25 years from being plowed. Unfortunately they have so far been unsuccessful in their efforts to offer a solution that the Peninsula School District will accept. Hopefully something will change and they will be able to work something out with the district. This is a teaser for a full-length documentary that they are working on to show their efforts to revive the place after a windstorm put it out of commission a decade ago.

Juan Placeres – “El Desafio” Chapter 1

Once again we have a video where I have absolutely no idea what is being said in it. The Google translated description wasn’t the best either. What I’ve managed to piece together is that this is part one of a documentary on Juan Placeres, who is considered an OG in the Chilean scene. Now I’m not sure whether he already did or is planning to tour the US via bicycle. What’s interesting is that it looks like he’s going to be towing his BMX bike along behind him. Anyway, this first chapter is mostly Juan riding trails down in Chile, so it really doesn’t matter all that much whether you understand what is being said or not.
