San Diego Critical PASS

So this last Friday A few friends and I packed up the car and headed down to lovely San Diego for Critical PASS. We showed up pretty late, and we noticed that mass had already started, so we parked, put our bikes together and rode over to the fountain where the trick comp. had already started. it was a little awkward at first for us knowing only one person but, my good friend DJ Mull won the comp. and scored himself a 12 pack of Natural Light...that he shared with everyone :-D. There were a few races after that and i walked around and mingled a bit. met a lot of new people and honestly had a good time. We were pretty bummed we couldn't make it to ruby room considering only one of us was 21, so DJ said he would take us to some street spots around downtown for a few hours. I didn't get any pics of critical pass because i grabbed my camera too late :-/, but here are some pics i took of us riding some spots in downtown. SEE YOU NEXT MONTH!

Riding Satan's Rollercoaster...

For those who don't know there is a group of kids around the Temecula/Murrieta area that ride extremely hard and they (or we i should say?) call themselves "HEATHENS" or Heathen Bicycle Firm. We all know what it's like out here with the heat and hills everywhere, but that doesn't stop these kids from bombing hills in the de luz mountains that people are afraid to drive down or mashing through a busy intersection with a 75% chance of getting hit by a lifted truck, but it's all in good fun. It in no way, shape, or form is a "crew" that would get heated if anyone was to talk shit nor do they go to parties to drink and fight (to get that out of the way), They're just friends and they like to ride...that's it. Anyways these kids are fun to ride with they are also all my best friends. there will be a section on them in the upcoming issue as well. If you live in the Temecula/ Murrieta or even San Diego area and want to ride with us feel free to contact me at we ride everyday and love meeting new people.
