Ashley recently took a small vacation in the warm up to his return to riding, we sent him to portland so he returned with some photos and a little write up.
– A couple of weeks ago I headed up to Portland for a week. I had wanted to go up last summer but didn’t find the time. After being kind of isolated because of my knee I needed a change of scenery. My plan was to head up there hang out with some friends, eat a ton of good food and just enjoy the beautiful Portland summer. I ended up taking my road bike with me instead of my bmx as I had been so on point with my knee rehab. The final part of the éclat free and sleezy trip was coming up so I wanted to keep on top of it. Right before I headed up there I spoke to my good friend lil Jon who decided to come meet me there. He had previously worked up at widells which is a small bmx/skate/snow camp about 30 minutes from Portland. It sits at the foot of mount Hood and is a great change of pace from the city. After spending a few days roaming the city we were lucky enough to head up there for a few days and enjoy the mountain. Here are a few photos from my time there.
