Minneapolis rider Jesse LaLonde, a founder of the Bareknuckle Brigade group and a designer at Twin Six, commutes to work on his mountain bike every day. His route takes a set of urban “pirate” singletrack trails through a forgotten section of town.
In this short, dreamlike video by T.C. Worley and Ryan Wheeler you get a glimpse of LaLonde’s daily riding routine. The railroad track jump is not to be missed.
Said Worley, “The goal of this video was really to make beautiful footage that gives you the itch to ride, but also celebrates the ride-where-you-can or escape-where-you-can mindset. Those urban trails don’t have beautiful vistas or backdrops, but they temporarily take you out of the city without having to travel.”
