Philly Voice has an article posted on their website focusing on an Indiegogo project started by David ‘Joby’ Suender and Steve Tassone (Chocolate Truck). These two Temple graduates are hoping to raise $10,000 to create the Urban Youth BMX BikeLife Program, in partnership with One Day at a Time and the Urban Affairs Coalition.

The month of July turned up the heat and brought a little much needed rain. Despite a few showers the guys at Catty / Posh managed to get their annual 4th & 5th of July jams done. The Wheel Mill held a Game Of B.I.K.E. which saw Cameron Girvin and Van Homan emerge as winners and we finally released our ‘Quaker State’ trailer. All in all, it was a good month for BMX in the state of Pennsylvania. For the month of July, we have a gallery of fifteen photos for you posted after the jump.
Don’t forget to follow us on Instagram and hashtag your photos with #ridepabmx, or tag us in your photos using @ridepabmx and you might see your photo featured in next months gallery.

Matt Smith at The Yea has composed an article for the DIG BMX site titled ‘Nickname and Shame’. The article gives some insight into some of the more notable characteristics of BMX riders and labels them accordingly with a nickname. There is also some pretty cool artwork that accompanies each of the examples before providing you with details about each of these generic BMX riding traits most of us are guilty of.
