I’ve been seeing BMX bikes along the carfree Sundays route every week, but have yet to confirm they’re actually used for trick riding. Here it is, at last!

Boys and men of all ages line up to practice, to earn applause, to be on a bicycle.


The announcer, not much more than a boy himself, loud and confident and well-versed in the BMX dynamic.


A few shots of the riders on the rails and pulling tricks on the platforms. The entire audience is hushed, expectant, immediately appreciative. Hardly anyone notices the bule in the crowd, so intent are they on the action.
