knew it was going
On Saturday evening, the first stop of the Nike Chosen Rail took over the streets of Breckenridge, Colorado. Over 50 amateur riders were invited to compete in jam format that featured a progressive setup in the middle of town. After four rounds, the top two riders from each heat were “Chosen” for the finals. Canadian rider, Anto Chamberland,Mac makeup 23, from Montreal, was putting down bangers all night and ended up taking the win.
Seth Hill, a passionate, up and comer, was throwing down all night and stomped his way into finals. After the contest we chatted with Seth to get his perspective of the Chosen Contest and what it was like ride in it. Nike Chosen: Breckeridge Rail JamDecember 1

Going into the Chosen Rail Jam I was a bit skeptical of what was actually going on. I had got he invite from Pat Bridges, and it was a Nike event, so I figured it must be pretty legit. With that said I had heard rumors of
them looking for non-sponsored athletes for the event, so I wasn’t quite sure. Once the details of the contest were emailed out everyone knew it was going to be legit; 50 solid riders and 5K in prize money changed the whole game. As far as I knew it was just a one time contest to draw some extra attention to the Dew Tour (which it did with nearly 1000 spectators in attendance). But found out it is a 7 stop tour which will be pretty awesome. Mac Hello Kitty
Put simply the Chosen Rail Jam was awesome time, in front of an awesome crowd with awesome riders.

Let me see if I can't summarize a few potnis here that seem to be recurring:1) Frequency. Missed/multiple connections and waiting in the cold/heat are no fun. Like Daron above, I have had too many times where I walked a bus route (West End to CWE) faster than the bus or waiting for a train. Time is money particularly to those folks able to choose between riding transit and driving.2) Extended service. Let us ride OUTSIDE normal commute hours. If I take transit in to work, and my colleagues want to do a happy hour or gathering in the Chesterfield Valley, unless I get a ride I am out if I am taking transit because even if I can get there, getting back is an issue.3) A night service of some kind. Would LOVE to be able to take a night service. I am sure others (like Christine above) would too. I am sure STLPD would also love for there to be a way for folks to have a good time and not have to drive. I am sure bars and restaurants and clubs would love to be able to tell their patrons that there is a night service (so they don't have to worry about a cab which if you haven't noticed, is a pain to get at times in this town). Even if it wasn't a normal route, but connected the trains with entertainment areas (Soulard, South Grand, the Landing, Washington Avenue, CWE, the Loop, Westport, etc) so that folks going home after an evening out didn't have to drive or spend $35 (or more) on a cab. 3) Reduce connections. Linked to #1 above. I don't want to have to make three changes to get to where I need to go. I realize that if I am going from Florrisant to Soulard, there are probably going to be two changes I need to make (bus to train to bus), at least with the system we have now. But if I am going Kirkwood to downtown, I shouldn't have to wait at transfer stations for nearly an hour combined just because it is after 8:30pm at night.4) Find a way to educate your ridership (and Metro security) so that people don't get harassed for train/bus fare just because of the way they are dressed.5) Have your drivers be consistent with policy in regards to when passengers can be allowed on, particularly in inclement weather. Not all bus stops have shelters. But if you educate your drivers and the riding public that the driver will not allow you on until XYZ minutes before departure, that would help. Again, this ties in with #1, because one of the reasons so many folks get caught waiting is lack of frequency.6) Courtney, Jennifer, y'all know this is coming: Update. Your. Signs.7) Get out of the mindset of a commuter system. Putting transfer stations and park-n-ride lots near a highway does nothing for people in the suburbs that might walk to a bus stop. This being the Midwest, once they get in their car it is likely they'll just drive (unless you can convince them that you can get them where they need to go and back when THEY want to come back which goes back to frequency again.)
