This ramp roots are deeper than your very own family tree.  This ramp has been a  part of our scene since the year 1988. The ramp started out its life as a 16′ wide X 6′ high mini on the North side of the city in Shane Buell’s backyard (Concordia Gardens).  In about 1995 it moved to the South-West side of town in Tym De Santos backyard. The Sweeney Skatepark was out of business just a few years earlier,  and the metal from the Sweeny park was purchased & installed as the top layer.

BMX Always Kicks Ass!

BMX Bikes

I had been thinking about what I was going to write for the 1st post of the newly revised RidersGottaRide.com.  It all comes down to the BMX, I mean the title of this post sums it up.  Every single time I get on my bicycle, where ever I may be and what ever I may be riding that day is always a new beginning.  A fresh start, a new perspective on life, and a new experience every single time.  BMX teaches us life lessons on so many levels its unbelievable.  I have been able to spend most of my life enjoying my passion, I want others to have the same opportunity to go where BMX has taken me, my friends, and my family.

    Northern Indiana began its day with 4″ of snow on the ground.  A challenge for all who was travelling to New Republic Skatepark in Fort Wayne.  The day began nice and early by shoveling and gearing up the park for it’s 1st ever competition of any kind.  Justin Hardin and Jordan Bowen showed up with the Solution Action Sports rig with a portable box jump in tow.

Local’s Bustin’ Loose at the Kitchen

The Kitchen Logo

 

The Kitchen has been a very special place since the beginning.  When one of the best riders on the planet decides to build a place in his hometown, you know its going to be something super special.  When Brett Banasiewicz decides to do something, he doesn’t piss around.  He just goes ahead and builds one of the largest and most intimidating skateparks anyone could ever dream of..  With the help of many locals and riders alike, the dream became a reality.
