Rats in Bmore (#MAM1)

Last sunday ACslayer and myself headed up to Baltimore to shred with the BALHOG boys. The last time I saw Sam and Colin was about a year ago at the DC BFF Fixt Trix jam so I was super stoked to ride with them again.

 
Sam and Colin tubin' that new Brock Olive joint.

Colin spotted this cornice drop-in while cruising between spots. He gave it a nice pop to smooth sand carve. It's rad to see he's still got that snowboarders eye for approaching new lines.

Cofo was on fire that day and caught a creative flick at this curb'd parking lot bank.

We stopped at this local market to meet up with Jeremiah from HOLDFAST who I also hadn't seen since the Fixt Trix jam. For those of you who don't know, Jeremiah is an awesome guy and an OG in the fixed gear community. Everyone grabbed tons of water while Colin ate mac'n cheese for lunch on this 95 degree day... 

Shortly after discussing the idea of "going deep" Aidan went a little too deep while peggin' a square guard rail.

Before.

After.

It was a complicated process getting to the hospital, a cab driver bailed on us at the scene and a dude fresh out of prison posed with us for some flip phone pix, but the Bmore guys really came through and saved the day in the end. Jeremiah gave Aidan a ride while Colin and Sam rode across the city to my car, then drove my car all the way back to the hospital and waited for us to get cleared to leave. 

Once Aidan was stitched up and cleared we were ready to roll again. The guys next led us to a chill shaded spot with cobblestone banks, a small stair set, and a pretty unique ledge. We session'd there until sunset and found a sweet street souvenir before leaving.

Thanks again Sam, Colin, and Jeremiah. You guys helped us out so much and we greatly appreciate it, come down to Richmond anytime! I can't wait to ride with these guys again, not only are they some of the funniest dudes to hangout with but their riding is on another level. Check out more of their videos hereRATPACK
