So I have a little cleared out space in my backyard and a buddy and I decided to build "skill building" features to help when we go up to our main trails in Williamsburg Va. Keep in mind I live on the coast of Va and it is beyond flat here. The entire goal for our build is/was to help build confidence on drops/bridges etc. I have been riding for a while and LOVE any drop to a nice landing that is fast lol, my friend however just began riding, and this has already built his confidence and technique 10 fold. Now I know there isn't a flow to our setup but again each feature is meant to hit alone and practice on. Enough with the small talk, ill post a couple of pictures. Please if you guys have any ideas or suggestions were looking to add a few things and I would love to hear them. Thanks for looking.
The first thing we built, a knee high tree bridge with a ladder down and drop option:
Then we built a little ramp to bridge to about a 2ft drop. It is shown in the middle here. We also built the big ramp up to platform. In this picture the landing isn't built yet.
And the finished drop:
