It's a wild and fun scene here in Chicago. Winters are miserable and so are the summers. As BMX riders, we have to find ways of using the weather to our advantage.

A group of BMX friends have made it summer tradition to launch their bikes off a homemade kicker at North Ave beach. Many riders around the area look forward to this Sunday sunrise session.

I finally made it out to one of these awesome get togethers and documented the fun that was had. I'm glad I went with on this day because these guys made a jump they've been planning for a while. We were limited to one jump because of severity of the premisis, but Alex Bedoya sent one and boy was it a good one! (last clip)
