    NL Video - East Coast Trail

    This is one of my favourite trails. The ocean views are fantastic. For those afraid of heights there is one section where you ride about 4-5 feet from a 300ft drop to the Atlantic.

    Enjoy

    I love trails like those! Rocky, a little up a little down... perfect

    The cliffs views are breathtaking!

    Now I want to ride those NL trails. Thanks for sharing your video

    That was cool. Humans tend to go where they look. I'd be fighting the tendency to look over the edge while riding.
    Great exposure!

    Beautiful!!!! Thank you for sharing. A great reminder of what an amazing tool a bike can be to explore awesome places.

    Can't wait to be back in the maritimes in a few weeks.

    The singletrack section from the highest point along the cliffs down to the end of the point in Flatrock is one of the most fun pieces of trail I've ridden anywhere. Too bad there isn't 10km of it. Love that first steep descent. Good pucker factor on that one.

    There are a couple of places where the trail is pretty close to the edge but you barely notice it when riding. There used to be some really exposed bits but they've been rerouted.

    Yea . . . you may not want to ride where you look on this trail. You would end up getting quite wet. :-)

    I agree Ron . . . I have that in one continuous clip of that section. Its about 2-3 minutes and it is quite fun. I did it again this past weekend. I take it you mtb in St. John's?
