Sunday Explorations

This Sunday I headed out my Nature Boy to explore an area of the river that I'd never checked out before. 

I've been super into the river as of late, there is so much decaying structure, man made tunnels, and 18th century left-overs down there.  And being able to easily shuck the city and get into the unknown is one of the things that I really cherish about living in Minneapolis and riding a bike.  I want to know every detail, every nook and cranny, and it's most often my bicycle that takes me there.

During my ramblings I stumbled and crossed onto some forbidden areas, found a skate spot, and the best group of graffiti pieces that I've seen in a very long time.

Then I had to cross through this section, which I found a bit disconcerting.

But eventually I made it here, and discovered a treasure trove of art.

awesome. I love that you wandered through the chain links and found such a radical spot. Hope you had beers after this one, and have since gone back. What an inspiration to get out and pedal through the unknown.

CHEERS.

Shuji Yamamoto Shoots the All-City Japan Tour

We are beyond stoked to finally lay hands on the images from the embedded photographer who accompanied us on all of our Japan adventures, Shuji Yamamoto. Shuji is a dear friend of Motocross Intl. our Japanese distributor, and as a Tokyo local was the one who's wheel we would follow as we explored the city and visited bike shops. As you'll soon see, he is also an ace behind the lens, and we couldn't be more grateful to the man. He was a central figure in making our trip as memorable as it was.
