Short video from a short trip The Trail Collective took out to California. What it lacks in trail footage it more more than makes up with blaxploitation clips!
At this point I’m not even going to be shocked that there’s yet another edit from Post Office. The use of Wu-Tang definitely puts this one from Owen Marks up there at the top of my favorite ones to come from the last days. That and the fact that the kid has a really rad style.
Wow, the videos continue to roll out from the last days of the Post Office Jumps. I was totally expecting this to be more of Andrew Taylor talking about the place than riding, but I’m glad to say that it’s the exact opposite. Actually there’s no talking at all, just a simple quote from Andrew and then him ripping around the place.
Deity teammates Jake Kinney and Cody Gessel took a trip up to Santa Cruz to ride Post Office and Freedom 40, and lucky for us we get to see the action in this joint edit between Bicycle Nightmares and Deity. Some may say that black and white trail edits are played out and cliche, but I still think that they look awesome.
It’s cool to see that there are still a few edits from creepin’ out from the Post Office Jumps. Here’s Jonesy Fedderson getting his last session in before they were razed. We need to see more from Jonesy! He kills it just as hard on a BMX as he does on a big bike.
Milan Recknagel put this chill edit together from his pilgrimage out California to ride the Post Office Jumps before they were torn down. He also has a pretty in depth write up about the trip that you can check out over on GetaBMX.
Here’s quite possibly the last edit we’ll see from the final jam at the Post Office Jumps. Chris from PSBMX made his way out there to pay his final respects, and he made sure that he grabbed plenty of footage!
It’s great that so many people got to pay their final respects to the Post Office Jumps via a last session. One thing that comes across in all of these videos is that people were making sure to check the boxes off on everything that they ever wanted to do there. That definitely shows in this edit from Jeffrey Herbertson’s final sessions!
This week we said goodbye to the legendary Aptos Post Office Jumps. Though one chapter has closed, you can help the locals begin a new one by taking a second to sign the PETITION they have set up to get a new spot going. This edit from GetaBMX was a perfect send off to a spot that will be missed by riders all over the world.
Man this video from Bicycle Nightmares was a tough one to watch. Seeing the actual destruction of the Post Office Jumps has me thinking about what it would be like to watch this happen to my spot. I do have to say that I’m really glad that the Post Office locals and the trail world in general had fair warning that they were going to be torn down. They and everyone willing to make the trip got the chance to get in some final sessions. Too many times that’s not the case when trails are plowed. Don’t forget that you can help these dudes get a new spot up and running by signing the petition they have going HERE.
