Question Recommendations for an off road riding area near Bellingham

I have heard about Walker OHV riding area but have been told that it is a little bit technical.

I need a pretty mundane area to let a kid test out a DR-Z110. Anything will do: powerline trails, vacant lots, poorly monitored cemeteries, abandoned buildings, the Bellis Fair Mall, anything that might work.

If you have any suggestions, I'd appreciate it.

Regards,

Mr. BigWheel

bassplayinroach,

Thanks for the offer. I'd love to take you up on it. I'll be down here for the next couple of weeks.

We're here for family, so I'm pretty flexible outside of all of the holiday obligations, parole board meetings and Anarchist Society get-togethers.

I have.. A huge tip of my hat to MrBigWheel. Love watching the Big Wheeled sickness in the snow. I have spent time on those things in the sand but never snow. They are a handful.

The videos are a blast, and those guys are maniacs! I agree with OMB the snow/studding tires is very entertaining.

Yay!! Snow!!! This is just like home!!

The riding should be awesome!!

Does anybody have a stud gun I could borrow? I left mine at home. I didn't think that I would need it. And my thermals. And the snowplow.

If you need a mello place to ride you can always use my house. I have a grass track with a matrix (I know you love those). There is also some single track up the street with some short hill climbs. Basically, come trash my yard, I have 5 acres. It's an excellent place to learn to ride.

I like these guys! Wish I could ride with you guys but I'm working and not supposed to do anything stupid, really hard for me.
OP, I've enjoyed your videos for years! Thanks for sharing.
