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.
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.
Made it to Victoria at the Dude House. The crew are still out there on the Island, hanging out, drinking beers, hitting parks, and living life. If you follow us on Twitter and Instagram you can catch the prize packs we are randomly leaving at locations and spots we visit. Check out a few photos from day 2 and 3. Pool table of bikes. All da beers.
Taylor, Sam, and Greg are on a trip to Vancouver Island this week with Zach Rampen, and Brad Hill even snagged a spot. They are heading out to ride a bunch of parks, film, camp, and visit some shops. If you're on the Island keep your eye out for where they are heading next, or you can follow the crew on Instagram and Twitter with #vanislandgetaway. Check out some photos after the jump from Zach from their first day, and keep checking back throughout the week for more updates. All packed up. Just the essentials. First park, Nanaimo. Skatepark wild life. Hunter gatherer. Greg the wood man Hatchet tossing. That's grillin' bud.
Zach Rampen has been responsible for some of our past and future edits, but he also has an eye for photos. RideBMX just posted a quick interview with him and a gallery of some of his recent photos, which include a couple great shots of Greg Flag. Check out another after the jump and you can view the whole gallery/interview here.
