We are thankful for all the kids that we have gotten to ride alongside for the last 11 years. (Even the forever young kids). Love on your people today and make a list of all that you are thankful for. We are thankful for you! ...

Every Tuesday that rips by makes us hanker to say R.I.P. 2020 and get ready to feed the stoke with our homies in 2021. Miss y’all! We’ll🥳 soon!

What does the future 👀 like? Looks pretty awesome if we keep the right things in the right place. Looking back at our roots most of our good 2 wheeled friends got their start on the BMX track.

Pretty sure @wenginit looked as good ripping the trail tonight as the @dhdwear 2020 “Limited Edition Share Holder T-shirt” (and it’s a sick T-shirt even if he didn’t)


Ladies meet one of our most inspiring friends who, no doubt will make you smile while racing with her next summer. Runner first, life lemonade maker second, who loves riding her bike.

That feeling when you’re about 100 feet from crossing the finish line of the ‘Mt.Baldy Run to the Top’ Race.

2 years ago today here I was running as fast as I could to the top of So Cals Mt.Baldy Peak 10,064 feet high . It hurts to push up a mountain believe me , but that feeling of accomplishment and believing in yourself to not give up is what matters in the end .

-Shoot for the stars , Aim for the Moon.
