    My first Downhill

    Hello everyone, I have discovered AMAZING downhill trail here, in SFV, in Topia Park. Very Beautiful place, very very steep - so it is extremely hard to ride it uphill, I had to walk all the way - but it worth it. Im planning on buying a helmet camera and will record future rides.

    PS: Im planning to go to this one at least once a week





    My ride






    PS: I threw away my helmet and was riding without Protection, And I did Fell and have scratches all over myself. Now Im going to go and buy full pack

    That ain't no downhill, other than it going downhill. And if it actually was, you'd be an idiot not to wear a helmet.

    Next time I go, Ill take a shot of the Trail itself. About helmet, if I knew that it would be so hard and steep - I would probably go and buy one.


    The road is not as good as its on the pix. It has a Lot of rocks and deeps made by water. The other half is wild trail with a lot of rock ramps and about 100 times I was about to fell because of the amount of rocks and steep hill.

    On the picture with a bike u can see how steep it is on the beginning of the trail (on top). But than it gets more steep.

    ^ What he said. We don't want the next series of pictures to be of you with your head cracked open like an egg on one of the apparently plentiful rocks on the trail.

    I know, I need one seriously. Not only helmet, but for elbows and knees too. I was afraid to make a turn and many times didnt make it right.


    It was a nice ride, will explore more hard trails soon)
