We headed out west from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania to Colorado in search of good cement parks, adventure and friends. Our crew from Pittsburgh was Tyler Valentik, Corey Zell, and myself and we planned to meet up with three other Jaunt team riders in Colorado; Will Blount, Jason Willis and Tom Dillon.
We bounced all over Northern Colorado. Some days we would ride three parks a day and other days we would just go for a hike. I think having a loose plan is always the best bet for a good time. Having a tight schedule never seems to work. As well, having good buddies who are down for anything are essential to a successful trip. We even ended up at a rodeo. It was hilarious. Six BMX dudes in the middle of a rodeo stood out like a sore thumb. Yet, there’s something about those random experiences that make a trip.
Colorado should be on anyone’s must do list, even if you’re not riding. There is something to do in any direction. I will for sure be making another 22 hour drive to the Rocky Mountains again. Photos by Tyler Valentik, Corey Zell, Mike Potoczny and Tom Dillon.
