It’s always interesting to see a fresh take on well sessioned spots, whether it’s a new pair of eyes or, in this case, a different riding style. Ben Lewis, best known for his tech street riding and multiple peg set up, serves as a guide to Mutiny riders Matt Roe and Robbo, taking them throughout Liverpool to the city’s often unique spots. Sans pegs and with a brake attached, it casts a new light on some familiar places.
