Jake Bowen treated us to our first ride of the road trip at his new compound in the small township of Ulong, on top of the range above Coffs Harbour, and we were treated to some big jumps from 90 feet to 120 feet, all using the ridgeline running across the 100 acre property.

Welcome to the first journal entry of the Freeride Road Trip, and as I type, we have just woken up from our first day of driving from Boonah to Coffs Harbour. After a nice and scenic365 kilometres of driving, we met up with Jake Bowen in Coffs and thenventured 'up the hill' to his new compound at Ulong where we would roll out the swags!

Starting today, Schuie and I will be making the most of what Australia has to offer when we begin our Freeride Road Trip around this great country to find the best natural terrain jumps, untouched sand dunes and ride with some of Australia's best FMX stars along the way. And not to mention, while we are riding, you can win prizes!
