    Turns out that five years of not mountain biking, really makes one strive to get back to it.

    In movie form and real life it looks way bigger!!

    I must congradulate myself on the excellent camera skills, sprocket was going so fast keeping him centered in the frame was harder than droppin da biatch.

    Ryan next time we head out there I'm hittin that drop for sure. The drop up at snowskilz house is probably about a foot and a half shorter than the part of the drop you were doing so I'm definitely going to do it.

    Yeah, it's sure to be on my spring highlight reel this coming year too.

    Good looking series of pics!




    Josh, you're going to be giddy when we do that shuttle this spring. It's the bee's knees. Whatever that means.

    I kind of suspected that was where the pics where taken. I can't wait to hit it - particularly since I haven't been on my bike in about a week and a half (I'm sick). I take it that is the 15 footer that you spoke of before?

    Jim - you should come with us to the drop in the "Happy Turkey Day!" thread sometime - it's good fun, and there are several other things within a mile or two of it.

    Bees? Knees?

    I think what you meant to say was "Its off da hizzle fo shizzle ma nizzle!" - or would it be "whizzle"?

    Hey, that reminded me of a picture I took over the Summer. Is this you?
    (sorry it's so blurry)



    I would have thought that trail is buried under snow by now.
    Bee's knees ... indeeds!

    Whoa - that's crazy how different the drop looks from different angles. The second angle looks like a 1/2 scale mock up of the drop in the sequence.

    Josh I've got a pic somewhere on my comp that I'll find this afternoon of me standing under it. And you'll see that it towers a good 3-4ft above me for the edge of the drop which lowers down from where Rocky takes off. He launchs off of it probably 3 ft back from the edge which launchs him up really high....

    Yeah - saw that in the first pic. I didn't mean to sound like I thought the drop was small - just that it really looks different from the 2 angles. I would like to see your pic though.

    You know what a fun stair gap up near you is, would be on University near the Panda Express and the King Soopers. It starts right next to the Panda Express (I think its all near University and Highlands Ranch) and it is an 8-8 stair with a decent runout right in front of a stop light.

    I've hit some Denver urban before in the Highlands Ranch area. Haven't been up doing urban in a good year or two so my memory is vague of where things are, but that struck out at me as something that was fun as hell.
