Ride every day, ‘The Bass Way,’ with Paul Basagoitia in this short series.

Six years ago, Paul Basagoitia was a household name in freeride mountain biking. He rode in Crankworx, Red Bull Rampage — really anywhere with extreme trails.

In 2015, a T12 spinal cord injury halted his career. Basagoitia’s story was documented in HBO’s Any One of Us film, what Ride Concepts called “an unprecedented glimpse into the world of spinal cord injuries.” But, that isn’t the only story Basagoitia has to tell.

“Any perspective in my life, the bike has always been there to save me,” he said. Now, improvements in his physical abilities and the rise of e-bike technology mean that Basagoitia has found a new way to ride.

“The Bass Way chronicles the next segment in Paul’s journey, capturing the new-found joy that e-bikes and a second chance have provided,” wrote Ride Concepts. “Ride Every Way” will be a multipart series.
