  Alexa, play my playlist... My goal has been to have music easily accessible while hanging out on my front patio. I'm aware of all kinds of stereo's, Bluetooth speakers/devices that could accomplish this, but I wanted something that wasn't tied to my smartphone, as well as something that wouldn't involve a major renovation (my front wall is brick). Now before people start to comment that I could have run stereo speakers in the soffit and into my house, that was already more work than I had planned as the soffit doesn't seem to be removable without using destructive force (I'm not sure how it was installed).

In all honesty, I really don't know where this video is filmed. What I do know is (1) it's a super slick routine (2) the riders name is Keelan Phillips (3) the video comes to us from Leicester, United Kingdom. I'm a little embarrassed to say this but I can't even name the trick he does that I like so much. Maybe if I describe it someone will make comments below to enlighten me, or maybe send me an email. The trick Keelan does is a simple front wheel hop, while doing a front wheel manual (or is it a G-Turn hop?). I guess it's meant to be a connector trick when stringing his multiple tricks together, which  doesn't look hard but probably is. Anyways I just love the way it flows which might be why the video is called FLOW? Two thumbs up from me as it looks super cool. Big shout out to the Keelan and the rest of his fellow riders across the pond!!
