Video: Scrape the Town

Posted by novoscene on April 29, 2008

A couple hundred bikers taking over the streets of West Oakland? Naw, it’s not the hood version of Critical Mass, it’s Scrape the Town, an event created by San Francisco’s Transparent BMX that went down on April 6. The event brought nearly 200 BMX riders out for a day of riding, tricks, BBQ and mayhem. While BMX riding has been lost some of it’s mainstream popularity over the last few years, these vids prove that there’s still a lot of air left in those tires. Props to Invisible Stripes for the original post.

Some great footage of the event here and here and here.
