This photogallery is packed full of amazing shots and we’ve included the video in at the end again so after you see the photos, you can watch the video, too!

“On a frosty Saturday morning the Johannesburg Library Gardens were awoken to the sound of bikes cruising in as riders from different scenes and towns from all over SA came together in support the first global BMX day.
The point of BMX day is not about drawing crowds, prize money or a contest format, It’s about drawing the scene closer together no matter how big or small through sharing the common bond of riding bikes.
So without further delay we packed the van, camera gear and set off on a wild ride through the city!
After warming up and clocking some clips at the first spot as well as getting everyone in one place for a group photo to commemorate this gathering it was time to hit the streets, Seeing a huge mob of riders bombing down Commissioner Street is definitely a sight to make anyone who has ever ridden a bike stoked.
With Wayne Reiche and Kevin Schnider capturing the vibe and the visuals you know this is going to be on point. Check out the edit and photo gallery below and get a behind the scenes look at how a bunch of BMX riders took over the streets of Johannesburg !
