I am sure most so called "normal" people when they see one of us on a strange looking bike with no seat climbing over rocks are a bit perplexed

So, since I have been only able to ride in my back yard for a while, I added a couple of obstacles and laid out a section, you start out hopping downhill over this little log,

go down towards the back wall and make a sandy left around the RR tie chunk that you can see in the first pic. Then there is a chicane, (this part has gotten the most points from me so far)around the other RR tie on the left side and going inside the rock on the right, then back around the LH side of the last RR tie, making a turn back to the right that comes inside the rock above it.

then a sandy 270 left at the wall, inside my line of rocks (I keep moving them in ) and out over my "big log"

(don't laugh it still daunts a little ).
For NMTA folks the reference is it is a little bigger than the one in the practice area at San Yo.
Nothing to write home about but enough to keep a one legged noob entertained.

A good friend will take you trail riding, an ADV friend will double back and say, "how did you get down there?"

That's what mine started like. Still have many of the first obstacles. They are just easier to get around and over now. I just keep adding stuff and turns. Couple times a year (usually after an event so things are fresh in my mind of what I need to fix) I lay down some ribbon. Found a bulk pack of orange ribbon on sale a couple years ago. So string out a section, walk it, try and ride it. Usually starts off with totally blowing out of bounds. Then steps up to getting through with a few dabs. Eventually cleans or planned dabs. Ribbon makes a HUGE difference! Don't have to move a thing, just the physiological factor of having ribbon completely changes the game. Before I had ribbon I was using the garden hose. When you start getting good, move it in a little.

Right now I have all the ribbon down (most if it sun rotted). Looking forward to the next event. When I get back I will have a few things that I am not doing as well as I would like and that is what I will try to recreate in the back yard. It is amazing how much you can do in so little space.

Good start, show us how it progresses.

Larry, it looks like you need to incorporate the two railroad tie wall in the back of this photo!


Glad to see you're progressing along and getting a little ride time in as well. Sorry you won't make Gallup this weekend...I set some cool Novice stuff for you!

I have gone up over that, but have to do it when the wife isn't home . I wish I could do Gallup, I promised my wife I wouldn't but the May San Yo for sure.

Thanks for the feedback, I found a bit of ribbon and went to work, makes the section tougher

Added a turn into the log
