Trip photos

 We started the trip off in Amsterdam after getting the ferry overnight from North Shields. We had planned on riding here for about a week but the weather was shit so we left after 2 nights in search of dryer weather.

We had planned on camping for the entire month, God knows what we were thinking! It was freezing. We lasted 2 nights before I threw my tent in the bin and checked into a hostel.

The next stop was Cologne, Germany and we fell in love with it straight away. Cheap beer, good people and incredible street spots everywhere

Most of the outdoor ramps we rode were very quiet and we hardly saw any riders all month. This mini was one of the best

Cologne University

I bought an issue of Cream magazine about 10 years ago in Paris and it had a Markus Wilke interview with a poster of him doing a wallride to table at this spot. We found it by accident riding through the city one day and needless to say it didnt disappoint- so good

Love locks on the bridge in Cologne

 Dussldorf University was amazing even though a lot of the more famous spots had been capped.. there was still countless things to ride. We didnt even get kicked out and rode it for about 4 hours.

The Kebab factory in Hamburg, those boys work it like a production line

Hamburg: not short on street spots..

Those banks in Hamburg took some searching but they were worth it

Coffee break in Berlin
