    I Wish.

    I had somewhere to ride. The only thin I have to ride is the track and that's only once a week. There's nowhere around me to ride and no room to build trails. It's horrible. The scene here is pathetic.

    I'm the only kid in my highschool that I know that rides or races BMX. There's like 2 kids in the middle school that ride and that's it.

    I don't know the kids who ride but I saw them the one day. I actually have a big parking lot by me with some high curbs, but none are big enough to try to grind or stall on.

    Flatland perhaps? You may not turn into Kevin Jones or Terry Adams but your bike handling skills will improve.

    Oh, there's some stuff. Like an indoor skatepark about 45 minutes away. And according to some of the kids at the track, there's some nice street stuff down where they live.

    having nothing to ride but curbs is sometimes the best thing. think about it, youre forced to have to get creative and come up with stuff because well its a curb. sure i guess i cant relate because theres shiat to ride everywhere here but sometimes i just rather ride some curbs. could be worse man.

    well we have a little skatepark, but trying to ride that isnt fun. its so small and theres verrrry limited line options. and i cant really ride once there are more than like 6 skaters up there. its ridiculous.

    Yeah danny it could be worse I guess. I got to ride the big lot today too with all the big curbs. There's actually a picnic table there too.
