Get involved! RADLANDS needs you!

I noticed this in the ads section of It's an online petition to re-open Radlands park so get your arses over to:
Sign it then tell EVERYONE you know to do same!!!

It's such a shame that Raddies stayed open all through the lean years & now BMX has blown up like it has & the park had to close... I'm sure you all have great memories of riding here, so do your bit & add your comments to the petition please!

If you already knew about this, slap me when next we meet ;-) & slap yourself for not telling me!

Christmas meet...

OK seeing as some of us have briefly discussed a get together over crimbo, I would like to propose an afternoon between Xmas day & New years day. Need you to post when you can make it please. Drinks would be optional & bring your own (depends on who's playing host - BK?) & we need some good DVD bike stuff to watch. Any other ideas???

Merry Christmas dudes!

yo wilco, fancy building some oldskool rides? .... gota ride them tho, can't just look at them, we could build them up over the next year or so, what do ya think?

New Animal Bike Co video...

Trailer is available for download here:

Check Failure out...

Go check out the new failure bikes site:

Looks good, I think this is a kinda continuation on the dirt bros deal???
Their frames look nice, straight up classic design...
Anyone who has Pete Augustin on their Legends list & John Peacy (fuck yes) on their team is alright by me!!!

Saturday's Shenanigans...

ray's profile...

i would like to draw your attention to the fact that ray thinks that the Beano is a book, and in particular one of his "favourites". You told me that you didn't read magazines anymore, and beano is not actually a book. If you want to add books to your favourites, the Beano isn't one; try my personal favourite series, 'Mr Men', or perhaps the ladybird books, which could qualify as novels for your favourite books. Thank you, Yours Sincerely, Chaz mann a.k.a. GOD
