Just a couple of Canadians riding BMX bikes in Spain… Justin Schwanke made a trip on over to Spain to spend some time soaking up the sunshine, street, spots, skateparks and random antics that he could during his study abroad program. Here’s a look at everything that went down during his stay! Excellent riding, great spots and more… This is a great watch from start to finish. Hit play and check it out!
“Back in May I was in Barcelona for a study abroad program. This was my second time visiting the city. Although I didn’t get to ride as much as I intended due to school commitments, I made a deliberate effort to take in as much as possible this time around. With this video I wanted to capture not only some great travel memories, but also the vibes of the city. I’m a huge fan of live music and Barcelona is rich with street performers. The entirety of the video features street music I filmed when out riding or touring the city with friends. I also spent a great deal of time collecting B-Roll footage. I would often carry a camera in my pocket when wandering around or even commuting to school. As blown out as Barcelona may seem in the BMX world, it truly is a remarkable place; It’s a place filled with a vibrant outdoor culture, weird characters, and of course plenty of spots. I hope this video portrays some of the city’s nuances and perhaps inspires a few more people to experience it for themselves.” – Justin Schwanke / Weird & Revered
