Well it’s been just over a week since the snow melted up here in Newcastle but we are now clear of it and the riding street riding has been getting done once more. Back in 2010 we had loads of snow around Christmas time, normally this would deter most BMXers from attempting to get out of bed let alone take advantage of the snow. However the one and only Chris “The Count” Lee and crew decided this could be a great opportunity to ride what normally wouldn’t be a spot. Over in Heaton Park there was a set of stairs that had been transformed into a flat bank and at the bottom we built a kicker over the fence to make it possible to ride. Below you can see one of the photos we got from the escapades, of course the run out was nigh on impossible to roll away from so when he landed it was a case of either stopping dead on the spot or being chucked over the bars..
