I (somehow) just now came across Joe Bailey through the explore page on Instagram, which led me to a post where he was waxing philosophical about Ride UK’s recent changes, which lead me to his photo site which led me to realize that he’s a rad photographer and I recognized some of his stuff! I love the internetzzzzz.

Click below for some quick photos that caught my eye, then head to his site where he’s got a great mix of visual goodness.

R.I.P. – Ride UK Print Mags

ruk1

Man… down goes another one. Ride UK Magazine (and all other Factory Media titles) will cease to exist in print and will turn their attention towards their online presence (according to word from Ride UK’s editor). No word beyond that, so stay tuned to Ride UK site. Shocking? Not really. Unfortunate? Yes.

Have a flip through their mag cover archive.

Flashback: SpaceTrippin SF

Let’s take it back a year or so ago to this video that Hoang Tran made. Good vibes.

This little trip I took with my friends Tom and Dylan was nothing more than an excuse to get out of town for a couple of days. We barely did any planning for this trip beside figuring out some key destinations. We decided to take a roadtrip up to San Francisco and do some camping along the way. There are two main interstates you can take to get to San Fransisco from San Diego. The fastest route, that’s up the 5 which takes about 7 hours with no stops, or you can take the 1 (Coast Hwy) which takes 10+ hours but filled with incredible views. For us, it was going to be about making good time, but for us now this is measured with the emphasis on “Good” rather than “time” and when you make the shift in emphasis the whole approach changes. So we went up the 1…

The rest of the trip was based around this motto and many good times were had. This video showcases some of the experiences on the way up and our short stay in San Francisco. Thanks to Tom for doing all the animation and helping with the filming; Erin Barker for her photography and letting us crash at her freshman college dormitory that housed a group named the sexy six…,Dylan for partying the sexy six to levels of panty incineration.

We’ve written down 100 random questions and assorted topics, all of which are unbeknownst to our victims. We will be asking people to pick 20 random numbers from 1-100 and then supplying them with those questions/topics to answer. Who knows what might come up!?!?!

Up next, is one of the unsung heros of our scene. Simple Session organizer Risto Kalmre. If you’ve ever attended or enjoyed the live stream of a Simple Session, you can thank Risto in large part.
