Have a read and get snapping – or encourage that mate whose images on Instagram make you want to put your phone down and ride! · Looking forward to seeing this year's entries. Kudos to @australianmountainbike and @shimanoaustralia for supporting local talent - open to international photogs too. ✌️ · Regram @australianmountainbike: The AMB Photography Awards presented by @shimanoaustralia are live for 2019. . This year the awards return with what you love - and a bit extra. We have four new categories: #joyofMTB: show us the stoke! #betweenthetape: show us race dedication. #adventurebyMTB: a glimpse of where bikes can take us. #womeninAMB: showcasing that mountain biking isn’t as bloke heavy as it can appear. . We have the Photographer of the Year award plus another for best local shooter. There’s $5k cash on the line, Shimano pedals, an XTR M9100 group set, a Deore XT group set and a paid gig for the local shooter. Find all the details via the link in our profile, and use the hashtags to show us what you’re working on. #mountainbike #ambmag #photoawards #bike #mtb #competition #shimanomtb
Chasing a feeling! 🤩 · @thegayesy, happy as can be @stromloforestpark (where there are so many trees now)!
I've never been surfing, but I imagine the feeling you get when pumping through some of the sweet, coastal Deep Creek Dam trails in Mogo comes pretty close. Here we are, @thegayesy and I, resting, laughing, snacking, getting ready to explore some more. · Thank you to the NSW South Coast MTB community for all the love that has clearly gone into these trails. The sculptures that decorate the loop are something else again. 🙌 A ride (and a day) that captures so much of what I love about bikes. 💗✨
Beautiful clear water for breakfast, mountain bike trails for lunch. 🌊☀️ · A pocket of paradise on the NSW South Coast. Thank you holidays. I hope to see you again real soon! ✨
When your MTB heroes also become super mums and dads! · Huge kudos to the @ridetechnics crew and local MTB groms for building and installing these cheerful fairy doors @stromloforestpark. There are twenty to find as you climb from the carpark to the top of the hill, a very cool initiative to get kids building fitness without even realising it. It's having a similar effect on big kids too. · Love your work guys and girls. Follow @ridetechnics to learn more about these doors and for regular videos on how to max your skills. 🙌🙌 · Human elements shown for scale! 😉
A superior week full of laughter and love. ✨ · Thank you to family and friends near and far for all the birthday wishes and celebrations. Most of those photos are for the fridge at home, but here's a couple of favourites from a very happy and relaxing time away. I hope you've had a lovely few days too. ✌️
