For this episode of THIS Visits, we break new ground with the story of a personal project that blossomed into something even more special.
Peter Porras isn’t just bike fanatic, he’s a man of the people. While he loves to ride, he gets excited watching other people ride. A couple of years ago he crashed hard and was hurt for eight months. To help rehabilitate himself he built a few small practice jumps in the empty lot behind his house. This quickly evolved into a dirt pump track involving the whole community. Now all the neighborhood kids are riding bikes and learning how to keep up the track, and more people are meeting and riding together every day.
I don’t know if i ever posted this to the blog. But check out the performance a couple months back by Andrew McAllister and Alexander Gow. They both came in the same night and layed down a couple amazing songs.
