In this day and age, it seems like many riders are out there making a name for themselves, via social networking, self promotion, or simply just hot dogging.
Out in the world however, there are still guys on bikes, pushing limits, progressing, getting their kicks and living it up, just for fun. These few photos are from a weekend in the park with a rider many may never had heard of.
His demeanor, and appearance are modest and unassuming, his behavior on on two wheels is anything but. Working more than 40 hours a week, for the weekend, Mike Askew is a real life working class hero.
