Peel Sessions in the NYTimes

July 13th, 2009


I know I’m a few days late on posting this, but Ray Jones has been coming out to the Peel Sessions for over a year now taking pictures and interviewing people. Two weeks ago, he came by and did an audio interview at my apartment. When I woke up Saturday morning, I was stoked to see the piece had been published! Thanks so much Ray and the NYTimes!

You can read the article here and watch the audio slideshow here!

Big Up!

Peel Sessions last night ruled. After making a bank out of some palettes and plywood, Wonka made a massive wedge. We then proceeded to kill it. Wonka 180’d and 3 hopped it and almost pulled a tuck-no-hand! Big up Andy T for the pics!

East Coast!

Last Thursday at Peel Sessions brought around the monthly sprint series, Midnight Keirin. Chris Kim throws this event to satisfy the bragging rights of the track bike kids in NYC. It’s usually under the BQE overpass where the Peel Spot is and involves a quick sprint and a sharp turn around a column. This week Chris took it to the streets; three laps around that course. All the typical heads showed up and a few groms as well.

You all met Kai last week. Well, two days after his intro, he took 1st place at the Midnight Keirin race. Way to go Kai!

And yeah, we have a blog now. We’ll be adding more rider profiles over the next couple of weeks and new riders in the coming months all of whom will be writing here when they get the itch. Or I harass them enough.
