San Francisco has always been known for its skating culture. But veteran biker Danny MacAskill shows us in his “Postcard from San Francisco” that the picturesque hills and ample street features are just as shreddable on a bike as they are on a board. MacAskill always packs his edits with insane creativity and entertaining lines, and this video is no different. I swear my jaw dropped every ten seconds when I watched it for the first time. Danny sniffed out lines that few other riders could have even imagined, let alone attempt and stick – I mean riding over a tennis net? Nuts.

When we filmed Esperanto over the last two years, we ended up with an insane amount of extra footage that deserved to see the light of day, but one segment in particular stood out: Emil Johansson's pursuit of perfection at La Fenasosa Bike Park. Director Jeremy Grant dug through the Esperanto tapes to pick out the best shots from Johansson's groundbreaking slopestyle segment in Teton
We’ve long known that the Transition Bikes crew knows how to have a good time on two wheels – but the introduction of their newest party bike, the all-new TR11 (yes it’s allow, and yes it’s a mullet), just led them to go off the rails. Heading north deep into Canada with Esperanto athletes Johny Salido and Hannah Bergemann in tow, the crew rode some classic BC freeride spots including Kamloops and Farwell Canyon to name a few.
Some of us need a few days to get acquainted with our new rides before sending 40-foot kickers. Not Josh Bryceland. Ratboy wasted no time getting on the saddle and testing the limits of his new Cannondale Moterra. Deep in the French backcountry, Josh and The Waves Crew stumbled upon a beautifully constructed jump track for a couple afternoons of big sends. I know Santa already stopped by for most of us, but if he wants to make another stop, I've got a new bike on my list...
