Caveman technology to the rescue.




Next one was easier.

Action shot.

Out.

A few other pieces I found for free.

I'll post again when the mad plan is all in place.
Cheers,
S.

Just had Nicola look over my shoulder and comment "Oh God, don't tell me we are looking for some of those as well ? "

Tole her I just need her brother to bring me about 6 more railway sleepers


Look forward to this plan coming together.

Nice! Those big pointy things in the background look fun to ride too.

Getting there.

Not as impressive as some peoples play pens though.

Another weekend gone.

After doing a load of domestic stuff this morning, I got to the garage by about 12 o'clock to start creating some obstacles to play and practice the basics on.

A Circular saw, a bag of mixed, used nails and some new nails, along with broken pallets and some bits of timber from when I broke out a dry wall just before Christmas resulted in these by about 5pm.

Bike in the picture just for perspective.

There is a small adjustabe "beam" on the front right, then right rear has a rocking ramp, which also flops over to create two "potholes" to get through and over. The blue ramp on the left reat is adjustable and can be used in various ways to practice less and more ambitious moves on the bike when I feel confident enough. The four upright pins are markers for doing figure 8's and fine motor control. the large sleeper is obviously also moveable and to try ride over at dead slow pace. Lastly a small wedge of railway sleeper for me to start on and to try "bunny hops" over.

Been playing in the back yard, doing figure 8's and 3 bollard twister, also got a few small obstacles up the driveway to practice lifting the front wheel over etc, as I am not allowed on the grass.

After a couple of these.....




Things got better, and I was getting to "clear" my little obstacle course.

Nicola's car also has a towbar fitted now, so I should be able to get places for dabbers meetings and also any other propper places to practice.


She took the pics while watching to see if I needed an ambulance or neck brace.




On Monday I kick started the bike and somehow managed to miss the action completely, ending up with the back of my knee hitting the top of the kickstarter at full force.
It was not really sore, but it has progressively gotten more impresive looking, today it is a whole rainbow, with a nice large egg sized lump under the skin.
Teach me to be casual about it.

It's easy to forget how brutal metal can be, especially in the friendly confines of your own backyard. We just bought a pair of these for quick, pre-dinner training runs around the maple tree and over assorted logs.

Started to clean up when I ride my Beta. Have a bunch of downed trees and rocks. Linking them up is good practice. Haven't been able to get the bars around the tree yet.

I have a 2' tall oak pallet with a pile of dirt behind of it.


What am I doing wrong? I want to keep the bike on the rear wheel. I am just a beginner, is this too advanced for now?




I am going to be building more stuff in the next few weeks. I'd like to build a log ride. I have some tires I am going to put out there.

Bury them at different depths so when you get better one will already be set up for your advanced skills
