Well said PedalOn
I think as part of a wider network of cycle trails this sort of thing would be great here. Like those krypton factor style assault courses provincial councils were putting in all over the show in the late 80s to give ratpayers something to expel their corporate stresson, only with wider appeal to the more learner end of the MTB spectrum.

it will require much less work for upkeep being gravel - looks fun!

Hmm, Seattle? Worth popping out to this weekend you reckon?
I was thinking of exploring more of Welly's tracks, but this is some INSANE sh-t.

looks fairly tight in the corners tho. probably not too Xtreme DH bike friendly :eh:


No way Jose. My trusty M3 can get around just about any switchback ( it does have the 40s which do have nice steering lock tho)

A couple of extra inches in length is not the problem you might at first expect in the tight stuff. ( as long as you drive the bike like a bus.. front wheel near the outside edge )

It rains a lot in Seattle. Gravel and concrete are good choices given the conditions, the canadians started using wooden platforms for the same reason. Some gravel, concrete and built up platforms wouldnt go astray in parts of vic park either.
