One For The Road
Road Trip #2 Jack Antal (@_captainjackk)
We started in San Diego at 4am on a Friday, drove up to LA to pick up Kevin & the bikes from BritishCustoms and then road tripped up to Pismo Beach. We road bikes on the sand, cooked over an open fire & camped out on the beach.
On Saturday we left Pismo & went to wash the bikes off before heading up to San Luis Obispo. We wandered around the sunny part of town, hitting a coffee shop & a real good deli before riding back down to the gloomy coast, where we shot for the rest of the day in the foggy tree-line.
Here I scored some of my favorite photos i’ve taken in a long time, and had a blast watching Kevin and Nelson rip through some fun roads.

*Basically all you need
for a really good time.
After one last sunset ride we packed up & went home.
“Riding the bikes down the beach right next to the water was rad. We caught some really good light near the end of the day & it made for a really special hour of riding & shooting. My camera was wet & caked with sand. Our clothes were soaked and the bikes were a mess but we had some pretty big grins from ear to ear.” “We got stuck in the sand & had to spend 30 minutes digging ourselves out when we first reached the campsite.”
“One of the most memorable parts of the trip was when we sat down to cook dinner over an open fire. We sipped whiskey from the bottle, cracked open a few beers and listened to music. We shared stories and had laughs all around. That’s what it’s all about!”
The best part about this trip was that there was really no plan. We didn’t have any specific spots, shots or direction in mind- which allowed for a lot of spontaneity. We figured that as long as we had the cameras, bikes & roads to explore we couldn’t go wrong with a weekend trip up north. We all work full time jobs so this was a massive breath of fresh air for all of us. From riding to camping, shooting & being crammed in a truck on the way up, we had so much fun every step of the way. We took this trip one road at a time, allowing for adventure to take us wherever it wanted. No rules & no regards, just great times with great people doing epic shit. You can never go wrong with that plan.
