    Should've brought a Mtn Bike....

    It would've been a better choice with the rocky shoreline. Oh well, we had fun anyway

    Yeah fun stuff! We need a way smoother approach or bigger bike next time so we can get some speed. It was a battle just to make it TO the jump, there was no time to figure out what to do in the air. Must.....go....bigger....

    AZ29er, it's Lake Pleasant.

    Unfortunately, jumping into water isn't completely safe. If you drop the bike and then land on it, you WILL get banged up. I got lucky and only took home some nice bruises. A-Ron got tangled up with the pedals and rear brake. Of course he waited to do that with the bike that had pointy pedals instead of the one with the nice plastic ones

    How deep was the water? Deep enough just to land it and not bail ?


    Aaron if it makes you feel any better the other Moses and another guy pulled the same move as you last year when you took out the barb wire fence up on sixer in the snow. Good times surprised I didn't see you boys in globe.

    Water was nice and deep. It dropped off to almost 10 ft, closer to 5 ft if you came up real short. I rode out a few jumps, kinda got tired of inhaling water tho
