Don't you just love discovering awesome new riders who take us along on their two-wheel adventures?
YouTube is a treasure trove of pretty amazing stuff. We're lucky to live in a time when riders from all over the world have the tools and the platform to share their adventures. At RideApart, we love to hear those stories and we thought we would share them with you so you too can discover someone new and really awesome.
This week’s Rocking Rider is, how should I put it, awesome? Yeah, I think that’s the word. Today we’re checking out the world of A Girl and Her Bike, or AGHB. The name of the channel is self explanatory: AGHB takes us on her two-wheel adventures as this girl next door pushes further the limits of her comfort zone. The nameless YouTuber and vlogger—she doesn’t advertise her name—doesn’t seem to shy away from trying everything… and failing.
With a camera strapped to her helmet, she takes us along for the ride as she tries her hand—or foot—at new things, including jumping off rocks on a dirt bike and popping wheelies. I love her unapologetic, confident style and her will to just go for anything, even when it means falling off the bike and breaking things, which happens on a few occasion as she documents in her videos and doesn’t edit out. Thanks to the mic in her helmet, we get to hear her thought process, her explanations, and her reactions to whatever it is she is tackling.
One of my favorite videos of hers is probably the one in which she hilariously recreates some of the more unlikely scenarios she has faced while off-roading, including a rockslide and a wild animal attack (a stuffed bunny). AGHB definitely has the entertainment factor down and that’s what makes her video so attention-grabbing. It’s also knowing that something hilariously bad will most likely happen and that we get to witness it (for the record, she never gets badly hurt in her videos and always gets back up, so I’m not being gory).
You should check her out and learn a lesson or two from the girl willing to give anything a go!
