issue one

intro.... Hindsight vision is said to be the root of all communication, whether it be from a gesture, a signal, written language or even through artwork. If a picture tells a thousand words, then maybe ours can speak for themselves. This is the belief that has led to the making of this magazine. Having a strong riding scene locally, we see a diverse range of riding and places and we hope to get as much diversity as we can, so please dont hesitate to get in touch. We hope you enjoy and welcome to Passion - Trigg

a.k.a the whips and airs partytime jam Jan 7th 2006

Well the 3rd annual bowljam went off at its home of Epic in Birmingham.The jam stills holds onto its laidback attitude where most people tend to rely on getting a little loose. Usual suspects were there along with new familiar faces. Hammers were dropped , plenty of alcohol was consumed and everybody seemed to have a real good time. So a big thanks to Mavis, Keith at the park and everyone else who helped organise, sort out melted amps and make good memories. Here’s a few pics so hopefully you should enjoy

Passion Origins

Passion Origins

Passion started off as a website dedicated to bicycle motocross inspired art and photography. Pictures of not necessarily bmx but the images, sights and views that the choice of riding a bike has allowed you to see........


KB06 media productions

The Kiddy Boyz Banished from the Black Country in 1707 for its flambouyant use of carpeted stairs, Kidderminster has been responsible for the birth of many things, such as the safari park, the drive thru, the chav and now its latest grotesque addition - the Kiddy Boyz. Whether riding or filming, one thing is guaranteed with the KB. You will laugh lots, either at them or with them. It’s all good.
