    What have you cleared lately? Pics

    Picture of the obstacle, location and brief description. Goooo


    Patapsco State Park,MD on a downhill section. Loose logs stacked in between. 3 foot drop after the 2nd tree, or you can opt for a blind board ramp to exit. Lots of fun.

    @blue42, I am loving that obstacle. Haven't seen anything like that before. Great interpretation of the standard log pile.

    I'm lucky to clear the parking lot, and just
    make it to the trails.

    Cool thread idea. Nice work on the clean

    Apparently I'm good at clearing my handlebar...feel like I went to a gang fight, and my gang didn't show up.

    I thought the thread was about the obstacle not the rider so I removed my head before this attempt.

    The hard climbs of the Grant Hill Trail, Pinaleno mountains, AZ 9000-9500'. The place was almost deserted but we were visited by 2 skunks and a bear. Summer monsoon flowers everywhere.

    Hey Mr. blue42blue42,

    I'll play! This is called Big Daddy and it's on the Boondocks Trail at Northstar Bike Park near Truckee, CA. It's very easy because of a perfect approach and an armored landing.

    The only scary part is I'm the guy on the bike and I'm 3 times the age of the biker watching me.

    Where did all the time go?

    Take care,

    Michael
    If you can't keep the rubber side down......at least smile for the camera!

    Trail: Funner
    Location: Bend, OR
    This rock is about 2 1/2 to 3 ft high. I have always shied away from stuff like this but this rock has haunted me since last year when I rode the trail for the first time. I hit it a couple of weeks ago & cleaned it. This gave me the confidence to try harder stuff on the trail. I didn't clean everything but I did a lot more than I thought I would. It was a great day on the trail.

    A little step up, ladder bridge to step down gap that my buddy built a few years ago. I first cleaned it a year or so ago but this is the first video evidence.

    I'm not real familiar so there could be a better way. It is called Vineyard spring trail. You come through the tunnel and lost lake is on your left. Turn right, and go up the trail about 1/2 mile. The trail head is on your right (under the rr track). Follow it for about 3 miles along the creek. YOu come to a service road, then shoot straight across.

    I want to try going up it next time.

    Michael, Nice. Can you roll down the rock, or do you just have to commit and launch?

    My buddy with the camera was super tired when we got to this spot so he kinda missed the shot, but I thought it was interesting enough.
