Hey guys,

A couple weeks ago one of my buddies helped me make a video or riding trials in boston. He's the only guy I know who actually knows anything about videography, and it was his first time filming action of this type. So it was more of a practice session, learning how to do this well. I'm really happy with how well the video came out and am looking forward to making more.

Comments welcome!

Nice. I'm curious, do you ever have any run ins with people, or police? I'm pretty sure people in my town would throw a fit if they saw someone jumping on the town sculptures/fountain with a bike. Not sure I could get away with it.

I've never actually been talked to by the police. In the last 10 years of riding I've been talked to by about 3 rent-a-cops, a librarian, and a few pedestrians. During this Boston trip we were riding near a fountain kids like to play in and some mom came over and said we weren't allowed to ride there than ran away as if I'm some thug. An older angry/bitter looking businessman yelled at me yesterday.

Most of the time I never have a problem and people respond positively if anything. During any normal ride I'll stop and talk to about 2-3 people who are curious as to what I'm doing and want to learn more. There are definitely places that I don't ride or know I can only stay a few minutes at. I try to never ride on veterans memorials, church property, or anything super-crazy historic.
