Hey guys, post your trails!!

I don't think its been done before lets see your trails! These are just a fraction of ours, the cameras battery went dead so I couldn't get anymore.






The jumps weren't ready to ride yet, but we tried anyways.

Early shot of nosemanual.


We had to tear the fifty footer down because kids were getting hurt

It's not fifty feet.

We tore the fifty footer down because to many kids got hurt trying to hit it.

Ya, I said we had to tear it down, thus why there are no pics of it.

The big one is maybe 25 feet.

Damn, that's pretty nice. I can see why you would want brakes to ride there..

I don't have any trails, except one jump in my back yard I started last year, but didn't finish. A tree fell on top of it, maybe I'll just build the landing on the other side and try to jump over it..

The gap was going to be maybe 7 feet.. it'll have to be a little bigger, and more height with the tree there. I suck at riding, but I do know how to eat **** without eating a lot of **** like gunz, so I could probably pull it in a few tries.

The only current pictures i have are about halfway through winter when everything was dead...but here goes...

These are the last three in the mainline. Picture was taken from the second in my lines lander.


This is the second jump in the mainline. Basically a setup speed jump thing that you stay low on to get speed for the rest of the line. I think the lips are about 5 feet tall in the mainline. Gaps are like 10 feet.


This is pretty much the whole place. You can only really see the first small jumps. The middle line is mine. The dirt pile next to that left line is a hip that hadn't been packed yet.



Basically they are trash right now but it's been raining all day so far so hopefully this weekend i can put in some work and i'll get some current pictures of stuff when it's running. Maybe some riding pics in the next week or so.

Well i got bored. So here are some pictures of other sets of trails around here...

'Mythical snakebite trails' (Mude will know that that's from...) I have yet to ride these but they are my buddy Jame's trails...


He can't take pictures...


'495 trails' Pretty old picture of the mainline there...


'Teds' Line at 495. These are really nice. I've only hit the first one so far cause it's smaller


More of the 'Teds'


Oh and these are my backyard trails...

Haha i like them. If you mixed those trails with Catty they would be perfect. Not that Catty isn't allready perfect. The pictures are enough to convince me.

Yeah they are a really nice set. I think a 12-pack. Some rollers and a hip are being added at the end. Unfortunatley alot of MTBers that suck ride them so come summertime they will ride and look like **** again. I'll have you know they are alot bigger in person. Lips gotta be at least 6ft. Gaps aren't too big but the lips go vert and are ridiculous. When and if i get the balls to try them i'll be sure to video tape myself dying.

Yeah they shoot you up pretty high now.

The mainline at me and mude's trails was similar to the ted's over the summer. They weren't as tall but they shot you up pretty good. But after a rainstorm they went to ****s. I'm hoping to make them pretty steep this season.

Here's a link to a trail jam they had back in '05. This was before the Teds got good:
http://www.dcstreet.com/video/495trailjam.mov
It will take awhile to load and the video is crappy but oh well. I'm not in it nor was i there and even if i was they wouldn't put me on camera...haha. Let me know if you wanna know who the riders are...

Too bad it's snowing. I wanted to dig this weekend.
