Re-Up: MacNeil Vancouver Island Getaway

As most of the northern hemisphere is starting to, or already have, feeling the chill of the oncoming winter we thought we should re-post our Vancouver Island Getaway video. Back in June a few of the guys on the team packed up in a car with Zach Rampen and headed out to Vancouver island for some exploring, riding, camping, and general summer fun. Give the video another watch with Greg Flag, Sam Lowe, and Taylor Elvy and a gallery of photos on the micro-site we made here shot by Brad Hill.

West Coast BMX Perspectives By Brad Hill – ESPN

Check it out here for all the photos and Brad’s perspective as a newcomer to Vancouver, and you can check out his new portfolio site here for even more work from him.

Re-Up: Connect Cranks Promo

Jeff, Silva, and Taylor in Vancouver

Jeff and Silva flew out to Vancouver and met up with Taylor Elvy back in August for an Animal Bikes trip. They had a jam at the Chuck Bailey skatepark, cruised some streets, and even hit a swimming hole. Check out this video of their time out there. Sam Lowe even sneaks a clip in too.

Vancouver Photos by Dave Scott

Taylor going down with the ship, and with the rail/ledge feeble.

When the crew are out and about and riding in Vancouver you can always count on Dave Scott being around to shoot a photo. He has gotten a number of shots with a lot of our team dudes, and lately he has been uploading some to his website. You can check out a few more after the jump, and visit his Open Liquor site for a bunch more.

Vancouver Island Getaway: Video + Photo Gallery

In the middle of June, Sam Lowe, Taylor Elvy and Greg Flag all hopped on a ferry to Vancouver Island, BC and spent a week exploring what the area had to offer. What they found were welcoming and generous locals, great parks, camp sites, and a seemingly endless supply of spots. We had an amazing time on the Island, and ended up filming more than we could have hoped for. We put together this video of the trip, filmed and edited by Zach Rampen, and a gallery of photos shot by Brad Hill, that you can check out by clicking the photo below. Thanks to One Six Bike Shop and all the locals on the Island that helped make our trip such a great time. We’ll be back soon enough.
