Soft Landings-Use wood chips
So last week I meant to post this but didn't get a chance. SO anyways I was on a ride and stumbled across this playground that had like a small one foot drop. It went into the playground and instead of gravel like most playgrounds have, this one had wood chips. Not loose but pretty compacted wood chips. So I did the drop into it, and BAM, so smooth. I'm telling you, if you guys want to take off some of the harshness of your bigger drops, put down a bag or two of wood chips. Really small wood chips though, not too big. There might be a teriffic downside here that I don't know about though...
