Pilgrim BMX (1992–2010)
Pilgrim started back in 1992 when we made our first video called
Pilgrim BMX, REBELS IN A WORLD FULL OF LAW'S. We as riderâ€™s are some
sort of rebels, going out for a street ride trying to find that next
secret spot. Having fun on a sweet ledge or crazy rail until the law
come up and spoil it for us. We all know this experience all so well. I
remember when we made the video my own personal bike was impounded for
three months for grinding a ledge. This all happened in Dundee,
Scotland. I have always loved the name Pilgrim and decided in 2010 to
make this old video into a complete bicycle company.
What does the name Pilgrim mean to me? well as riders we are all on a journey. Could be riding down to your local skate park or traveling overseas to ride with some great friends. Myself one day I will make a pilgrimage to Woodward, Pennsylvania. I would just like to say thank you to my family for all there support with Pilgrim. I would like to say a big thankyou to Clint Millar (Colonybmx) for helping me and pushing to do this project. If it wasnâ€™t for you mate, this would never have happened. My team, what can I say. You all rule! My family and I thank you for your support and believing in Pilgrim. This is just the beginning of a fantastic journey. Lets all enjoy the ride!
