Let’s face it, flatlanders social distance everyday. It’s nothing new for us, flatland has come into it’s own during the Covid-19 pandemic and helped us all stay sane. And with lockdown somewhat easing, it’s ideal in a lot of ways to get out riding.
Jason Forde got together with some UK heads to document a line each during the pandemic for a project he calls “distancing”, featuring Jason Forde, Kevin Browne, James White, Miguel Pargas, Remus Simion and Josh Briars. Enjoy this one if you missed it on Instagram last night, rad riding and tune!
Great memories from 2008 and jamming with the UK crew at the TGM riding spot in West Norwood. I haven’t watched this edit in a few years until yesterday, featuring Jason Forde, myself Effraim Catlow, Phil Dolan, and a big section from Sam Foakes which starts at the 3:36 mark. Well worth a rewind!

What an epic weekend over at the Wheels and Finns Festival in Joss Bay, Kent. After two days at the event, most of the hard work was done. We woke up to blue skies, and with the festival being so close to the beach, meant only one thing. Chilled breakfast on the beach, before the day really got started!
Jason Forde just started a new youtube channel, Flatlife. And kicked things off with Iñigo Arroyo Gutierrez’s leaving jam at the Green Mile in West Norwood, London. Webisode style with Phil Dolan, Steve Green, Iñigo Arroyo Gutierrez, Jason Forde, TGM Maz, Remus Simion, Johann Chan, Keelan Phillips, and Vlad Shcherbakov.
