"It matters not what we ride, but in that we all ride."
Started in a basement back in 2015 with the idea of making just one simple logo for our community to represent what we love doing most in life, quickly spread through the excitement of family & friends.
So many amazing people dedicate their lives to riding of all genres. It's incredible to see our name adorning these passionate people and the adventures they pursue. Thank you to each and every one of you who have made this possible.

Born in NY, raised in MN Randy grew up in an area where BMX ruled the streets. Lower East-side, St. Paul, MN- Blazing trails and looking for new adventures is how I spent my childhood. From East 7th street to Lake Phalen onward to Sunray I've blazed all the hidden and well known paths. Reihbeins, Gateway state, wheelock parkway, lilydale trail, Battle Creek trail etc. Many thanks for the Ride Brand crew for taking me in and giving me a wonderful opportunity. Ride On!

Proud to call the city of Minneapolis Minnesota home, BMX has always been Derek’s main passion, however windsurfing comes in a close second. Derek grew up riding trails and ramps, however over the years his focus shifted more towards street riding. Nothing that compares to the adrenaline rush of conquering a new set up. Riding has always been the perfect catalyst for meeting great people.
Ride: Definition - Betsy. Growing up in a family surrounded by dirtbikes, street bikes and snowmobiles, she has a passion few others can match when it comes to Grippin n' Rippin It. She loves to be high five'd when at events so stop and slap her some skin.
