    Where are the good drops?

    I am new to mtb and now I do about 2-3 drops to flat. There is one near my house that I do a lot but I want to know for the summer time a good place with drops with transitions for a beginner that does about 2-3 foot drops to flat? I have never done a drop with a transition... I live in the sandy area.

    loading docks at your local wal mart, but dude, learn to hit transitions, drops to flat after about four feet suck, I've done about six and a half feet and it rattled my brains on a seven inch travel bike.
    I like bikes.

    I street is public. Just google the address above.
    I grew up in sandy and to say there are no steps to jump off of is crazy. go to any school, church, or business complex.

    Which part of sandy do you live in? There were some old jumps south of Mt. jordan middle school in the gully but haven't been there for years. maybe i should go check it out sometime.
