Monday Mission.

Sorry for no post after I said I would yesterday, as soon as I posted it I put my pads on and it got all wet out side so nothing happened. Bummer. Got in from work today early ish with still some light in the sky and a moist floor so I took the opportunity to explore and ride some street. I found a couple of flat blocks not to far away which with abit TLC and wax would slide rather well. I also found in a rather close location some sweet benches that had afew lines and stuff that could be had however I am unsure on how much of a bust they would be. After riding through a questionable estate I found an amazing hand rail, small about 2 bikes long 6 or 8 stairs. It looks a peach and it has fences down bother sides of the stairs to hope over into a grass bank. Will have to send it I think, perfect for me I feel (not in the way them blue rails next to Fusion call center are for Pid though.)After abit more a mooch I came across a flat big of concrete into a grass bank with a little curb gap thing at the top which looked like it could be fun when the grass is dry to stunt into. After that I got abit lost and came across a rather sweet roundabout underpass with banks and a possible gap. Cobbles at the top stick up which limits a potential lethal wall ride and making the spot like something off skate but it's still canny good. Anyway that was one little loop around the area and there is plenty more exploration to be done and I shall let you know and if you are lucky take you to all of these new spots. Who knows, if I can find some mates there might be some on the edits!
See you soon.

Photo To Follow...

I have a house! Not much in the way of riding this week, well not until I've written this then I am off out to hopefully get a photo for you lot. The lack of riding is due to me getting a really nice room and a wicked house in Turnpike Lane. Big room and a back yard so riding will be happening so get your selves down to the big smoke and help me make some edits and show the south how we northern people ride street. Sketchy and hard the way it should be! Anyway how that I have a pad you are all welcome any time so just drop me a holla when you are coming down and I'll get the tins in. House mates are all cool and there is loads of place to sleep and keep bikes safe. I might hit you with another update depending on how riding goes and you will have a photo of something tonight. Hope everyone is keeping well and I am really looking forward to my return home at the end of next month for some good old drunken fun.

Sunday big one.

I am so so sorry for the major slackness over the last month or so. Finally moved (well half moved) to London and started my new job which so far looks like it's going to be sweet. As most of you know I tried to do this last year but ended up coming back home to do an MSc and fuck my life up as much as I could by allowing my self to be sucked into a fucking horrible depressing life and becoming a total cunt! As you might have seen I try not to use to much bad language in this but that is what I became. I let myself be turned into some one who I always hated without even putting up any sort of fight or trying to save the only thing that has ever truly mattered to me. It would be easy to blame it all on other people but the truth is it was my fault, I was a weak excuse of a human and I hated every single part of the who fucking episode which has left me fucked and not properly happy or the really Krissy Shee for the past year and fuck knows how much longer to come. The only thing to keep me going was BMX and some good friends. I just want to say think you to you all, you know who you are and I wish I listened to you all earlier instead of going into self destruct with "that". If it wasn't for you all and the little 20" wheels I would no doubt be in a much worse situation that I am now. This is not only a thank you be an apology for it all. I fucked up big time and regret every second of it, I hurt a lot of people and I know you were all disappointed with me but I hope most of you can see that the proper Krissy Shee is almost back together with just the one major piece still missing. I love you all.

Right back on with the normal carry on. As I said I have started my new job and contrary to any rumors going around I do not have a mustache, stick on or other wise and I am not drinking cocktails or wearing sparkly jump suites. I rode the little skate lite park I have talked about before on my way back from work on Tuesday which was sweet as it was the first time I have been out since moving. The mini ramp there is rather good although it is a bit wide for it's size. Yesterday was really sunny so I went to a little park around the corner from where I am staying which was canny for the odd little set up it is.

The 1/4s are a bit mellow and the grinds are only metal on one side but the concrete still slides ok on the old smith. Met a couple of people there, one fella who had a really nice turn down on him and they all had pegs which was nice to see. With it only being a little park I only spent an hour there before heading back to base to work out the rout to Camden skatepark which looked rather sweet. It's just one long road all the way to it from Rosies so I thought I would just mooch it. Only took half an hour to ride there which wasn't to bad. When I got there it was rather busy but not as snakey as one might imagine. It's a really good park however the riders were not as friendly as up north (as in North London). Was more of an Exi vibe about the place. The street section was ok but there was a distinct lack of grinds and pegs in the place but the nice banks and sort of Temple Park bank things down one side where enough for a man of my streetness!! Haha. The bowl in that place is amazing as you can see and although I can't really ride that type of thing, carving around and jumping the hips was more than enough fun for me. The section at the top which is like a mini was the perfect steepness and was a really really nice ride.

If the place was a bit quieter it would be a really good session and I might get myself along to the Wednesday night session that goes on and try and make some friends and maybe next time I can have some pictures of riding again and not just empty parks stolen off google and I have no mates to take pictures of. Anyway I hope I see some of you soon and I promise to be less slack even though I don't think I'll have any pictures for awhile but I will still keep on the updates.

Friday Photo Seaburn Jam special.

Well I know it was almost a week ago and really this should have been up at the start of the week but this is the last week of my MSc and so I am mega busy hence no edit yet. The monthly edit is done but I still haven't looked at any of the jam footage never mind started to sort it or think about what to do with it. As you all know I will be sickly busy for at least another 2 or 3 weeks so this months edit and photos might be abit slack but I promise to do my best to get at least some shit sorted. Any way the jam was amazing, stunts went down the best of which I can remember would be Marc Bell hopping on the back of the block 3 onto the lower part and doing a slingger off. Dyno done a huge aly-oop whip on the 1/4er and a sweet hanger or over pedal crooks thing and low speed, Fido ripping the mini a new one with all sorts of crazy maneuvers, Sam Watson doing a sweet over pegs to hard way 180 on the new longer rail and late arrival Pete with a sweet 180 backwards crooks all of which got a beer or some sort of randomly collected items. Best trick I seen for the day was the NSF big gun Chris Souter with a huge curved wall ride to 180 and finishing off with a half cab bar spin. If you were there then you know how good it was if not you once again missed out on a good day of beer bikes and fun times. After the party came the after party back at the Shee house hold where all things considered the party went well and booze went inside me and the rest is a blur. Here are a selection of photos from me, some stolen from NMB and Mexican John the European explorer.

Busy busy man photo of last week!

Well I am very sorry that this is so late. Busy man at the moment trying to find a house in London and finish off my Uni work and sort the jam out! Sucks, nee time for stunts or photos or footage and I have to be in London at the end of the week again. Trying get get some footage to get an edit out there as well as the edit that will come from the Seaburn jam but I am seriously running out of time and I have shit to do. Not good, but I will get it done don't worry, I have till Tuesday. Anyway as far as BMX went last week for me I didn't involve more than Seaburn and a sweet night time town mission involving Doxys finest and Woods and Daws however the reall shit didn't go down untill D tweaked his foot and we hit up the less ridden spots of the city center. We hit up this forgoton gem, well it you can call it that after Rob did the only possible half decent thing possible on it on NSF. I did give it a little love with afew manouvers and I do think there is more to be had if I get back to get some footage before the end of the month but you'll have to wait and see I guess.

Me with a shitty little wall ride.

After this little nibble me and Woods decided to part way with the Billy Lad and go hit up a late night Craggies block mission which turned out to be rather productive, well for me anyway. Here is a selection of the things that got thrown on the table.

Trademark footplant.


Letting the cat out the bag time and time again.

Woods getting tucked up for bed.


Also people remember its the Seaburn Jam v3 this Saturday so get yourself along for beer, BBQ, BMX and all round good times.
