    Interesting idea to build a winter DH trail. I hate snow but I hope where your part of Ontario gets lots so we can see it

    interesting how it is evolving... was a little bit unsure of the soil conditions, but once we got down it was all pure clay (which means it's going to harden up like concrete). the bowl shape turned out really well, now i'm thinking what would be the best bike to ride in it.... bmx? hmmmmm...

    Oh how I love piles of dirt! Looking real good! Maybe a 24" or even a 26" cruiser? There are alot of cool bikes at cruiser revolution.

    That's starting to look pretty promising.

    Did you have to truck in any dirt or is it all just excavated from that spot?
    Please enjoy seeing this terrible collection of me - something wonderful is about to happy.

    thanks garage monster. i've designed it so i use all the dirt from the excavation. everything was lazer leveled so all the slopes are consistent for optimial drainage.
    since all of this is a bit of a design experiment for myself, i must say i'm pleased with the results so far. though it does borrow from skate/bmx parks somewhat.

    project plan as it stands now:

    -continue shaping
    -test riding (cruiser purchse)
    -outside berm rock gardens
    -plantings
    -inside paving

    There's a lot going on there in a very small space.

    I wonder if that big puddle is from hosing down the track - looks kinda yucky.

    I'm with Ms. Vagabond! I've eyed up the possibilities in our yard, but it's not to be. I'm particularly looking forward to seeing the landscaping!

    I was a big part of a committee for Our local Skatepark ( Ex BMX'er, lost sponsorship due to knee injury ), My brother and myself were the voice of the Skate/BMX community and we basically had free choice of what to pick, just had to stay on budget. $280,000 later we have an AWESOME concrete park.. Although you won't see me on it ( tried to screw around on my XC but they don't perform the best in a half-pipe ). Let your imagination spill when it comes to designing your track!, I am definitely 'pumped' to see the outcome of your project!

    We have been collecting rocks to incorporate in the design. Haven't decided yet on plants

    We used to jump in these as kids, then after seeing the jackass guys do it off of roof tops... must be soft.. Haha! We called them 'jello bush', shake them and they would wiggle like jello!
