A Trail Bike for Boundary Bay


I was just explaining to my friend Martin how middle range bikes don’t get photographed like the high end ones do, and he shares a photo of his Giant Revolt 2. That’s a reasonably spec’d and priced trail bike at shops for under $1K. As the caption to his photo says, he bought the bike to ride the Boundary Bay Dyke Trail. Since Martin is getting back on the bike, expect to see more photos like the above. He told me he’s happy with it too. Probably going to change the saddle though.

Fat Bikes Gain Traction As New Winter Sport


Not every day do we see a combined bikes and climate change story. Well done and from where we loved to Fatback too in the Methow Valley. Our story about riding there a month ago was featured on Medium and in issue 33. That crunchy sound in the video, nothing quite like it, and we’ll ride there again.

Sony World Photography Awards: BMX

asfas

Covering the Sony World Photography Awards for the Mirrorless Pro, after the US winners were announced, I browed the rest of the shortlists. Those include

  • National Awards
  • Professional
  • Open

and from Russia, I spotted this beautiful BMX image by Dmitry Ivanov. It was 3rd Place in the Russia National Award. The caption or profile doesn’t indicated where the image was taken, but I guess a local BMX/Skate park like one nearby. The National Awards program honors and rewards the best single image taken by a local photographer and runs in 60 countries across the world from Argentina to Australia. It is open to photographers of all abilities and is part of the larger World Photography competition sponsored by Sony. Winners from each category will take part in the 2016 Sony World Photography Awards Exhibition at Somerset House, London from April 22- May 8 and will be published in the annual Sony World Photography Awards book.
