    Video: Pawnee Grasslands & FC Trials / Bike Park

    I thought you guys would enjoy the recent ride a buddy and I did last weekend.



    We hit up Pawnee Grasslands for a huck lesson/sesson, then trotted over to the new Spring Canyon Trials Bike park to see what that was all about.

    Enjoy!

    looks like you're getting your money's worth out of that nomad.
    (and the video camera).

    That would be Chris's Nomad (although I'm seen riding it in a few shots)

    I'm mostly on the Free, and the trials bike.

    I saw you guys out at Pawnee on Sunday- I was wishing I just brought my MTB as I was riding around trying to teach my GF a few things on her dirt bike. Seems like a long way to drive for whats out there. Is the trials bike park in the video the one at the end of Horsetooth? Looks kind of cool.

    Cool! When the lifts shut down and it starts to get chillier, I tend to head out there for some skills practice. I can't tell people how much this place can bring up your hucking game. I wouldn't have gone down some of the same stuff last year, but with a good summer at Keystone on a new bike had me a lot more comfortable.

    The Trials park is in the SW part of town. I will only go there when I see clients

    uhh, like fun downhill trails... rough, technical, fast and flowy. stuff that is fun to go down on a downhill bike with lots of elevation drop. maybe ski resort dhing? i'm not really talking about freeriding like ladders and stuff but thats alright too.

    There are some fun trails, but for the most part you have to earn your downs.

    Resorts are 2+ hours away, but they're there. You can always shuttle Maxwell, there's an entire thread on it in this forum

    Lower your seat when you're doing drops... It'll help keep you from getting bounced over the bars if you land on your seat.

    My seat was plenty slammed, but I'll mention it to Chris.
