Pics from Wednesday’s urban ride

Usually there is a group of us that meet at Merritt’s shop (Re:cycles) once or twice a week for evening urban rides. Sometimes there are large turnouts sometimes there is just a few of us.
Anyway here a few pictures from the ride.

Merritt


Skinnie, to 4’ drop, to a few steps for a little tranny..


Bryan’s 6’ drop to flat… he only did it once.


stair gap


christmas bush gap


Merritt with an x-up

Nice pics, Looks like a good time to me. I see the Helmets but where are the shin guards. I personally would rather have shin guards than a helmet.

Landing into a downward slope is key, as in a set of stairs or grassy hill. The only ugly one from wed. was Bryan's 6' drop to flat. Man the sound his coiler made was pretty nasty.

because I mostly ride alone, and everyone has made it clear that pics of my bike and the trail are boring. Also, If I'm actually having a good time riding with someone, we don't stop to take pics.
