Ask Back Bone – Can I Ride Your Trails?

Ask Back Bone Wednesday is back and the submitted question they picked to answer this week is, “Can I ride your trails?”. The trails in question are the Hillfire Trails that we’ve become quite familiar with from many a Back Bone edit and from their video. Those trails are pretty gnarly and I’m surprised that any kid wanting to ride them wouldn’t already be well aware of the rules and contributions required to do so.

Just like the video, it’s a mix of everything, but a good bit of the footage is from the trails. And speaking of the video, there are a few copies sitting here on my desk that are looking for homes. Head over to the STORE and snatch up a copy before someone else does and they’re all gone!

Review: The Back Bone Video

Full length BMX DVD releases are becoming fewer and farther between with each passing year, and those with trails in them have become rarer than hen’s teeth. The trails community collectively popped a boner when Back Bone announced that they were going to be releasing a full length DVD. Anyone that knows anything about Back Bone knows that Rhysty and the crew are all about trails.

After three years of accumulating footage, Back…

Back Bone’s yearly jam to honor the late Dane Searls took place last month at the Hillfire Trails in Canberra. People from all over showed up to pay tribute to Dane by spending a day with fellow friends having fun on their bikes. Once again the turn out looked amazing and they were blessed with great weather for the third year in a row. Rhysty penned some heartfelt words about the jam over on the Back Bone site that you should really take a second to read after you get done watching this.
