    What to do with yard

    I have 95 feet of space here by 12 feet (at it's narrowest).

    Thinking of putting about 9-10 rollers with berms along the fence side.

    Not sure if I have enough room to put a berm at the end so we could do 2 rows of rollers to go back and forth on. Might be too sharp of a turn around...? (don't want to cover paved walkway)

    Any other ideas for it?

    I could also forget the rollers and do big berms alternating to get a nice fast ride through it.

    Not into doing big jumps so dirt jumps are out (until my son is old enough to want to start catching big air).

    I will probably end up tearing out the grass and build a nice pump track there too!

    I'm all amped up on some double shot expresso and working in the dark.

    Getting my berm up now...worked out to be around 8-9 feet on the inside. Works cool for BMX bike.

    Probably gonna get sick out here in the cold but it's fun.

    Got another couple feet to add to the berm.

    maybe put a small roll-in ramp on the concrete in the back?

    While everyone was watching football I was putting in some work.

    I think my berm entry rollers might be too far out though...easy fix.

    Once I get those dialed in I can work on the other rollers.

    Arms and back got really sore so had to take a break!

    Having some speed killing issues with the berm rollers so need to work on that still before I can move on. Will post some pics later.
