International Female Ride Day: Vancouver

International Female Ride Day is coming up !! This will be the 4th year that Road Apples organizes a ride in Vancouver/BC. Last year we did Victoria @ Wheelies Motorcycles and it was a fucking blast. This year will be back in Vancouver but with a twist. We're going to meet at International Motorsports on 2nd Ave at 10:30am on May 6th, drink some coffee, do a raffle with prizes from Converse, Brixton, Stance & The Dream Roll and then head out towards the O.W.L Rehabilitation Centre in Delta. They're having an open house on the same day we're doing the ride (May 6th) so were going to go check out some owls and raptors and even watch one of these birds being released back into the wild.

Ladies only! Anyone is welcome to the meet up at International Motorsports but ladies only on the ride! See you babes soon! More information on the poster below or the Facebook group: https://www.facebook.com/events/1791288931191865/

On the Spot: Murray Ash

"I met Murray when I used to work at The Shop Vancouver. He was talking about doing a trip from Vancouver, BC -> California -> Mexico -> New York then ship his Triumph across the pond and go home to London.. I thought he was nuts. Murray ended up riding down to California and Mexico where he made friends with a ton of other riders and started shooting photos of some serious babes. I started seeing his name everywhere. He got hooked up with some cool gigs and stayed there for quite a long period of time. He is still planning on doing his dream trip, but for now, he's back in Vancouver continuing to shoot photos and work his dream job. You'll be seeing more of this guy soon."

The best trip you’ve ever been on?: The best trip I've ever been on was a mushroom trip in Bali. It involved a star wars scene on the beach and sleeping in a cupboard. Most of that was probably imagined but really, who's to say?

Tell us something that’s on your bucket list. To finish writing my book. Ive been traveling the world for over ten years now and its about time I combined my photography (@murrayashdotcom) and my writing (@aestival_knievel) into something a little more tactile than Instagram.

If we came over to your house for dinner, what would you make us?: What would I make you? I would make you extremely hungry by waiting ages to feed you, knowing that whatever I cooked after that would taste incredible. It would be veggie though, animals are for laughing at on youtube not for eating.

Favourite Instagram page you follow? Henrik Purienne. Pure hedonism.

Do you ride with any women? I love women who ride but there aren't enough of you guys out there! I spent a couple of days riding and shooting Amanda (@rad_rau) and Jacinta (@moto_doll) this summer and we had a blast.

Murray is also a killer writer. Check out his ongoing work about his travels at www.aestivalknievel.com 

Myk Roc & His Fortress

We went out to Myk Roc's house on the outskirts of Vancouver, BC for a shoot with the Born A Bad Seed team. I had never been out there before but I heard it fucking ruled. Myk is a custom painter, pin striper and a collector of everything rad. This is his fortress.

Born Free 7

We just got back from 2 weeks on the road so this mega post is ready to happen. Born Free was really awesome and probably one of the best put together events I have been to. It was the first BF for me and I will for sure be going back next year.

Max Shaaf build this knuckle and rode it all the way to Born Free to raffle it off. Was pretty cool watching someone win this baby.

Tons of road warriors on their way to Cooks Corner to drink a hundred beers

Jangus drove down from Vancouver, BC with his and his buddies bike in the back of his Ford Ranger in less than 24 hours. He got to LA right as the Chun party which was releasing the new Dice Mag was going on. Turns out this naked babe was all over his bike in a couple pages of the new issue. This dude and his bike rules.

TJ from The Shop Vancouver who we drove down from Canada with had painted a tank for the art and fuel show they had set up at Born Free. The artists involved were really inspiring and it was rad how much diversity there was. Tj and The Shop will be giving away the tank he painted over the next couple weeks so keep an eye out for that via @theshopvancouver instagram page.

Chicks at the Babes Ride Out meet up the first day. Was so cool to meet a ton of ladies who I talk to online and who I'll be spending time with this summer. Here's Corinne modelling for Jennys new company Strange Vacation.
