    What would be cool to jump over or ride down?

    You know the scene, bored at work and we start chatting about our bikes. One thing has got us going, what would the best jump on two wheels? Has anyone done the Great Wall of China? I don't think anyone has landed and lived to date. I know Danny Way cleared it on a skateboard but what about a BMX or an MTB?

    Which landmarks would you jump? I reckon the gap on the roof of the Millenium Stadium would be cool!

    PS- someone's mentioned the Downtown race was cool when it was held (Bridgenorth and then Penarth), can't seem to find any info on this, is it still going in the UK? That also got us thinking, what would be cool to ride down DH style?

    Cheers, H

    Fuquay's are a gentleman's ride.

    120 meter ski jumps would be cool. Not the 1st time but cool.

    Abubaca a hot air balloon.<---That would be legend.
    Crank Stall a Vermont ski lift cable. <--- Doable.
    Gap a road full of tree shredders, running , and input facing up. <-- That would be gnarly.

    Put a big ass launch ramp up to the front grill of one of these, and remove the flashing lights/roll bar. The downed bed would make a perfect landing ramp.


    One other thing I thought of is put a big ass ramp head on against an 18 wheeler (with trailer) and make a 'step up' onto the trailer, then drop off the back end of it.
    Jump it onto something off of something or over something.

    There's more to freeriding than dirt jumps.

    Great wall of china gap has been done multiple times, successful and not-so-successful (as in: the guy died). Don't know if anyone did it without a foam pit though.

    What about jumping a pool filled with sharks who have lasers attached to their fins? This pool will also have a raised platform with the young Led Zeppelin playing a blazing 20min version of "Moby Dick" while you jump. As you appoach the jump, fireworks explode on both sides of you as you head up the ramp and at the apex of your jump, another huge fireworks display is set off. I think that would be pretty cool.

    We couldn't get any sharks, so we have sea bass... ill tempered sea bass... with lasers
    You better just go ahead and drop that seatpost down to the reflector... the trail gets pretty rough down there.

    When I was in NYC I kept imagining what it would be like to jump between the roofs of two skyscrapers. Gap Broadway Street or something

    Locally I've always thought that it would be badass to freeride the Arizona Science Center. There that steep sloping ridge line (don't know how you'd get up there?) that you could combine with the circular (polygon) part of the building. I look down and it from my office all the time and dream about riding it and getting arrested shortly thereafter.
