Yes, believe it or not, Ride BMX has been around for 20 years now—and has inspired multiple generations of riders along the way (and making those of us who remember when the first issue came out feel kinda old, but also proud for being involved with something we love for this long). As a celebration of this milestone, as you can tell from the cover, we took a departure from our traditional format and features lineup and decided to dedicate this issue to the riders whose influence helped shape BMX the most over the past 20 years. Who made the 20 Most Influential list? We’re not going to spoil it here… In addition to naming the most influential riders of Ride‘s time, we handpicked a selection of iconic photos from past issues for our Focus Flashback pages. You’ll also find a rad pull-out poster courtesy of Rockstar Energy Drink inside. Whether this is your first issue of Ride, or your 185th, we hope that after reading it and checking out the photos, you feel inspired, motivated, and most importantly—psyched on BMX. Here’s to 20 more years, and beyond!

20 Years! The October 2012 issue, #185, has shipped to subscribers, will be distributed at Interbike, and on newsstands September 18th.
