Ferns and Berms Episode 1: Dodging Gun Shots at Sandy Ridge

Ferns and Berms Episode 1: Dodging Gun Shots at Sandy Ridge

Chris here from Broken and Coastal introducing you to a new project called Ferns and Berms. I’ll be posting a new video each week documenting some aspect of live here in the Pacific Northwest.

Today’s video was shot on the new Go Pro 7 Black at Sandy Ridge which is one of our local riding spots. Learn more about Sandy Ridge here: https://bit.ly/2RLaCSE Towards the end of the video you will hear some gun shots in the distance.

Who shoots guns next to a public trail system? No idea.

Yesterday was another scorcher at the Portland International Raceway but Short Track kept the good times rolling. Seven races in the books with just one more to go. Monday's will never be the same again!

Bandit MTB racing at Gateway Green? What? Say what? Someone should do it! 

And I am Getting a 2019 Bronson!

And I am Getting a 2019 Bronson!

My buddy started me out on a Bronson 1 with a bunch of spare parts while I was living in Santa Cruz. Since then I've owned two 5010's and have been super happy in the jibby trail category. I don't think my riding style has changed but I am finding myself pushing the limits of the 5010 just way too much.

Getting High and Staying Light with Smoothjazzlines

Who brings two bikes on a work trip? This guy does! After a long and last minute work week in Seattle, I linked up with Chip from @smoothjazzlines who promised to take me deep into the Green Zone.

The trail scene just outside of Seattle is legit. 

Never not jibbing. 

"What is a SJLMTBCSystems Facilitator? The simple answer… you are! SJL is not a hierarchical program. As such, the growth and development of our technology is dependent on the devoted MindEye of each and every Facilitator! Join us! The longer answer… a Facilitator fosters community, shares knowledge, willing opens the GreenZone to new Facilitators, lives by RadicalEquality, and knows when to get sideways! Without you, our technologies stagnate. So, share the program! If you encounter a potential Facilitator on the trail, say hi and offer an adjustment! You never know! We’re all just trying to find the GreenZone, right?"

Google Raging River / Exit 27 for the goods. I have no clue how we got there or what we rode. I do know that the Evergreen Mountain Bike Alliance is putting in a lot work here and it's going to be a destination trail system for sure! I am already planning my next trip back up!

There was a lot of jumps to scare myself on. Stoked to get a couple of the big lines dialed. I can't wait to come back and get them from top to bottom. 

Pass the Doubie

This winter has been lit! Like seriously, open the windows dude! 

Nothing beats a last minute trip to Black Rock.  

Winter light and temps dipping into the mid 40's. 

The scenery never gets old. Pass the doubie man!
