Look for spots where there is alot of dirt/sand next to the tracks. A piece of wood pushed into a switch point can be used as a ramp. (remove it after you are done) Pile of rocks also works.(remove them as well). If you need lift your bike over the rails lift by holding the wheel so the suspension does not work against you. Lifting the wheel while turning it by hand works really well. There were 2 of us so one person could control the bike while the other lifted a wheel.
