    NICE!!

    I've seen this bridge but have never attempted it. Is it fairly 'solid' or is it a little 'rickety'?

    The backside is rickety. Since the bark was left on and the wood is already rotting, its days are numbered. Check it out before attempting!

    I've started riding there recently and I've noticed a mix of all different bikes - hardtails, singlespeeds, FS... Looking forward to getting back out there this weekend.

    My BigHit is definitely more bike than you need, but there are some drops with flatish landings and I want to be able to hit everything. Plus, I'm getting older and need some cush to help soften the hits! Any bike is fine, though.

    Did you by any chance run into a kid on a Bighit with his son with him?

    YA,I thought so because he told he met some guy on a big hit.I'll tell you this, he is one of the best people I've ever know.I've been riding with him for 12 years and its been some of the best times in my life,for sure the funniest.In fact we won't let him ride with our group because he is sooo funny we never even get to ride.HaHa,kidding of course about not letting him ride with us,in fact it's never the same ride with out him.He's got three boys 12,10 and 8 and they are all great riders(and getting better every time out)that's the beauty of this sport.He is hard core Specialized,but we love him anyway.(in side joke)no offense.
