Six weeks, two rail passes, two BMX bikes and a Super 8mm camera.

Joe Rich and Ruben Alcantara set off on Europe’s rail system in search of new terrain. For many BMXers, this continual quest for new features to ride is as important to the progression of their individual skills as it is to the sport as a whole. The new terrain is only part of the progression. Travel introduces them to new people. Often, travel also allows one to leave everyday life stresses behind, allowing a greater focus on “stomping that massive 360-gap jump.” And then, filming it.
