An awful obstacle...
So there's this 5 meter long log with a four foot sacrifice drop into a dry river if you don't make it. Now I don't have the balls to do it alone, so I was wondering if tying a rope from tree to tree to run above the log to hold on to if I fall is a good idea.

Sure why not, should work fine. But keep in mind, you will focus on your bailout more than making it, increasing your chances of falling.

Riding skinnies is all a mind game, keep that in mind :)

Jump off the log onto the riverbed a few times, good to be able to land flats and hop AWAY from anything that will knock your pedal as you go down. If its a no go- Hop off and land a flat.

Like unless you got foot high sharp boulders under you. Are you running a FS bike?

Like did you mean 40 feet? Tying a rope for 4 feet is goofy, unless your under 24 inches tall. Might be good for dragging yourself back up outa the creek.

I must be missing something..
