It’s funny, I almost didn’t post this because when I first watched it I thought to myself, “Why would I post park footage this time of year.” Then it hit me that it’s February and just because it feels like mid-spring here, it’s still actually the dead of winter and under normal circumstances places like The Wheel Mill would be our only option for riding. Anyway, enough about our crazy weather. Bobby Valentine put this edit together for Profile of Mark Mulville cruising The Wheel Mill’s jump room, and I shouldn’t have to tell you that he destroyed the place!
Here we go! Here’s the footage of Mark at Cody’s house, aka Scituate Woods, that I was hoping would surface! We didn’t see nearly enough of him this year, so this is an extra special treat. Shot out to Circuit BMX for putting it together! And while we’re on the subject of Circuit… they have a brand new website that you should take a peek at!
I was hoping to see some footage from Mulville’s time up at Cody Digg’s spot. Luckily for me this collection of raw footage from Cody’s and PineWood just so happens to contain what I was looking for!
Ride caught up with everyone’s favorite bicycle ninja, Mark Mulville at Woodward Tahoe for lesson on how to do pendulums. If some aerial ninjutsu is what tickles your fancy, then you’ll want to pay close attention to this!
Palm Bay Florida’s Grapefruit Trails are the subject of the third episode in Profile and DIG’s DIY Documentary series. Shawn Bilslend gives you the scoop on the place, and a whole crew of characters (including one Rob Nolli) put it to use.
I don’t think there’s a single person who visits this site that will argue with the fact that Deluxe won the internet this week. I’ve always been really stoked on what the brand is about, and I’m glad to see the ethos that Mark Noble created still lives on in Deluxe’s current ownership. For this week’s flashback I wanted to revisit the early days of the brand, more specifically their first full length video release, 2010’s “Welcome to Deluxe”!
I’m glad to see that Profile decided to upload this to their Youtube channel. It came out last week but for some reason they gave it to TCU to host on their channel. My immediate thought was that it made about as much sense as a record label giving a country video to BET. Anyway, here it is, Mark Mulville’s five day trip back to his former home of Pittsburgh, captured and edited by the one and only Bobby Valentine.
Well, they actually call these kick out seat grabs in this how-to from Ride but I’m definitely not having any of that. I’ve got nothing but love for Mark but I’m sorry, you are a communist if you call these anything other than a Ground Chuck.
While this may not be the craziest video, it’s one that I’m very happy to post up after the victory of the Grapefruit Trails being spared from destruction.
I used to go to Florida a lot when I was younger with my buddy the Stileman, and let’s just say that the trails there were interesting back then. I always did have a ton of respect for the dudes down there making it happen though. It was cool seeing the trails evolve from piles of sand with carpets over them to dialed spots built with the help of shipped in clay. Casselberry or 71N definitely gained the most notoriety, but there were a couple of other sets of trails down there that I’ve long since forgotten the names of…
