    Building begginer practice features

    We have an area at the local dirt jump/pump track that I'd like to build some basic features to teach beginner skills such as descending and lifting the front wheel. The area is flat but we have access to dirt and yellow metal. Any thoughts on or pictures or dimensions of these would be appreciated.

    This is easy. Build a drop that you can roll off of without going OTB. Next to it build a bigger one, and maybe even go one more, depending how much progression you feel the need for in that area. As far as descending, I assume you mean proper positioning for steeps? Build a big roller you can ride off of, think about a dirt jump, only you're riding from top to bottom sort of thing.

    Thanks for the reply and you're right that I'm probably over thinking this.
