The boys from RideKore are back at it. Last year David Kern and Ryan Thompson’s River City Rip video, shot in Forest Hill Park, got a ton of views on Pinkbike.com. Now they’ve released a video featuring the trails at Pocahontas State Park, with the hope of raising awareness of (and money for) the Richmond Regional Ride Center trail building project.

As the text from the Pinkbike.com post points out: This video celebrates the forward movement of mountain bike culture here in Richmond, VA and aims to continue casting a positive light on the new trails being built in and around the city. Watch as two local riders take a quick rip through one of the existing trail loops at Pocahontas State Park; one of the trail systems that makes up the larger Richmond Regional Ride Center and the future home of 40 miles of new IMBA certified trails.

About Andy Thompson

I was the Outdoors Columnist at the Times-Dispatch from 2007 to 2013, writing twice a week about mountain biking, fishing, hunting, paddling and much more. I live a 1/4 mile from the James River, close enough to see bald eagles soaring over my house on their way to find a meal. Pretty cool, eh?
