The past 15 months have been uncertain and tough and during those dark days we came up with a plan to gather some ODI Grips UK riders together, as soon as we were allowed, then film them enjoying the freedom of being able to ride and properly interact with friends once more.

A few false starts due to changing restrictions didn’t deter us! We waited for good news from the UK Government’s daily briefings. Fast forward to April this year and the word came through from No.10 that restrictions would be lifted on May 17th so we were on! Our plan immediately swung into action with emails, texts and phone calls to all involved.

Four of ODI Grips UK riders, Matt Roe, Becci Skelton, Glen Coe and Harry Schofield descended on Bike Park Wales at the beginning of June. Met by our film crew headed up by Sandy Plenty (SP Films) their brief was to have fun riding together. Their different styles worked well together.

So here it is, we are pleased to bring you Straight Outta Lockdown, celebrating the joy of unrestricted riding after spending 15 long months in what, at times, seemed like being incarcerated in solitary confinement. Enjoy the Freedom!
