Summer in the Shire – Video & Gallery

The Beta crew was in Bellingham, Washington last week working on the next round of The Beta Tests (more on that soon…), and we were lucky enough to be on hand for opening night at the Shire trails, an incredible set of dirt jumps built and fastidiously maintained by a tight-knit crew of local 20 and 26-inch shredders. The tarps came off, and the fellas rang summer in with the sounds of shovels slapping, freehubs buzzing, and stoke.

Check out @shire.built for more dirt mastery from this crew that truly embodies the ethos of ‘no dig no ride’. These locals have a literally uplifting vibe, and we’re grateful to have had the opportunity to take in a session.
