R-Dog rips hometown trails

This is how you ride a trail bike.

Trek rider Ryan “R-Dog” Howard says his words to live by are: Ride. Or. Die. Go along for the ride with R-Dog as he rips through his coastal California trails. The dark soil sprays as he slides through curves with unmatched style.

R-Dog’s affection for Aptos, California, adjacent to Santa Cruz, runs deep. Some of America’s gnarliest trail riding tricksters grew up on Aptos’ trails. R-Dog is one of them and he loves his home turf. You can feel the fun as he flies through the forest. Try not to smile, we dare you.
