WHERE DO YOU WANT TO GO RIDE?
That's how all our sessions start. The whole point of this project is to connect BMX riders, our landmarks and our stories all in one place. Whether you're looking for new places to ride or planning a trip to a new city with your friends Landmark BMX is founded by BMX riders that want to make the experience of riding and having great trips and sessions easier by connecting riders and spots. At its core Landmark BMX is a travel website but in addition to that we're going to be building maps to BMX landmarks as well as putting out our own stories, photos and videos starting with the Houston scene with the intention of branching out to more cities in the future.
THere's no time to waste anymore so Instead of Just hoping to find good spots riders can check out the site and plan better sessions, EXPERIENCE NEW PLACES, ride with new people from a starting point on one of our maps AND go further to discover new SPOTS.
When we build a new bike, find a new band or a new spot to ride these moments in time stick out to us like landmarks. Our crew is all about documenting those experiences and keeping track of these landmarks both in space and time. People walk past these world famous BMX landmarks and they mean nothing to them, but to us they mean everything.
WHAT THIS IS:
- A website built by seasoned BMX riders for BMX riders that want to make the most of every session in their city or visiting somewhere new
- A place where riders can submit their local spots they find to their city map
- A guide for visitors to check prior to heading out to a new city on a trip
WHAT LANDMARK BMX IS NOT
- A big company trying to buy the BMX community's attention
- A group of riders with the intention of blowing out spots
- A blog that will blow up your FB/IG feeds with content all about the hottest spots in BMX
We all know we can't turn off the urge to check out what's behind one more corner 'just to see if somethings there' or that feeling we get when we roll up on a new spot and imagine using it to the fullest. This is the place where riders can share the better known spots in their area they take visitors to. The 'have to hit' spots people coming to ride in your city have to check off their list before heading home.
WHY WE'RE DOING THIS
Here's the thing; the digitized world has flattened the playing field for what makes riders popular or even get sponsored. So if there are dozens of local riders out there that are absolutely killing it but get no press at all, there are photographers and filmmakers in everyone's pockets every single time they go ride, then what's going to be the most important aspect of riding BMX in the coming future? We believe its our experience exploring new cities, shooting new photos at new spots and putting in the work to make a new edit or full length DVD. Our vision is to share BMX content sorted by geography and not by the rider, brand or crew. We think that spots matter most and the ones that have gone down in history thus far are landmarks to riders like us. Landmark BMX is a home base where riders can check out historic BMX landmarks and spots in other cities. The whole point is to enable us to plan trips and for locals to plan better sessions. There's nothing worse than going out on a trip and feeling like you've missed a seriously trip altering spot. There are a handful of maps out there to local spots, but none of them are taking to the level we're heading towards. We intend to be the most helpful site for riders that make plans for trips, sessions and filming projects.
