After several hours of delayed flights and long train journeys, we finally made it to Eunpyeong-gu, Seoul, South Korea. Seoul BMX. Let’s go.
3 cans of 7/11 coffee, 2 hours of building bikes and 1 eight mile ride later we pulled up to Shredd Bikes, and met Boon (an American visiting family in Korea, having just finished building a skatepark in China) Max Jackson (English fashion model/BMX rider working in Seoul) and Inho (local SK BMX rider) and headed out into the streets of South Korea.

Later on we also met Ji Hoon Lee, who you may know better as @sadlonelyguy or @1800pegless. Ji is a Korean pegless enthusiast/activist with a huge amount of amazing transition spots up his sleeve. and Lee Cruickshank, an Australian who teaches english in Seoul. When he’s not too busy giving Ji shit, he’s an amazing bike rider and all round GC.
Above: Inho was nice enough to show us around most days, and order our food for us (lol) he’s a great dude and a dialled bike rider who I’m glad to have met.
