I was on such a high today after riding with people I hadn’t really seen in a long time, some really old faces and a couple of new ones too. All brought together by the love of our BMX bikes and all the little things that come with it. I’ve made some amazing friends over the years through riding and to discover that yet another friend has been lost in the community is heart wrenching. This one in particular character im talking about it the man behind the P5 Jam series, the guy who injected life back into the UK street jam scene, the man who was one of the craziest riders and interesting people I had ever met and also one of the funniest, genuine guys in BMX. This man was Matt ‘Mute’ Parker.
Matt passed away earlier today following his love of kayaking, the way many of his close friends said that he would have wanted to go. Your going to be sorely missed in all the communities that you were part of and by all your friends and people who were lucky enough to have met you. Rest in peace Mute.
If you’d like to leave a message in the comments i’ll make sure these get passed on to his friends and family.
