..... Did you really sign into an anonymous account to make that post?
Anyways, I have been doing a bit of research on those jumps, I have a pretty good idea of who the kids are, ad if its them they were riding our trails a lot through the winter if that evens anything out.
I do see what you are saying about the pictures, but the spot can easily be seen from google Earth.

So you agree then.

You yourself said its cool when others come out and ride as long as nothing gets messed up. And even if its not a community effort its still a a project for the community. The last thing I want to do is build trails by myself and never share with them anyone, there is no fun in that. The more people that my work brings the better, so long as they are respectful.

i have to agree with the people who say it's a dick move to ride other peoples trails without knowing the locals or having their consent.

let's put this into perspective.......

Q: how many of you would be cool with a complete stranger picking up your bike(that you worked hard for and paid for with your own money) while you're not around and taking it for a joy ride without your knowledge or permission? it's ok though right? because they like your bike and are having fun on it. if your wheel is already a little bent then under rotating a bunch of 360's can't hurt because, hey, the wheel was like that when they found your bike.

A: absolutely none of you would be fine with someone treating your personal property like a cheap whore.

you guys should have respected the those guys' work and left a note or came back later to meet the locals before you took advantage of their hard work.

The difference being is that trails are always a community effort, its not something that is privately owned. (except in rare cases)

Every set of trails I have built, I look at it like a community service endeavor. There is no way you can keep a public place private, and its always going to blow up. Just be respectful and others will respect you in turn.

I bet you guys act like a bouncer at a club, grilling every new face with 20 questions and judging them before they even give you a chance to show you their character. When a new face rolls up to one of my spots I greet them casually, let them know any of the rules if there are any, and tell them to fix anything they break.

Numerous times I have shown up to my own trails to see a new face there, barring the little disrespectful kids that turn every jump into a table top it has never been a problem. BMX is a community and a brotherhood, as far as I am concerned, anyone on a BMX bike is a friend until proven otherwise.

Bens got it in perspective.

If you don't want people to ride your jumps, chain them up, and make sure they aren't visable on google maps.

It's not like we were being disrespectful in any way. I have been the "owner" of many jumps and I always welcome anyone with respect.

Wow guys, it's people like you that make trails awful.
Those ruts were there, the dirt is so hard packed it's like cement and nothing will fuck it up. Even if I did manage to mess something up I would fix it, and when I do meet the owners I am going to congradulate them and offer up some help.

So we stumbled across some jumps the other day. No idea who built them.

They have 2 lines, and both start on top of this hill, and neither require any pedaling.
One line has this cool off camber step down drop in. Its like dropping into a quarter off a sub box. Really fun.



Then it just goes into a double, and a lip that isn't finished.

The other lines starts off with this cool pump track. You go around 2 berms and 2 rollers, then his this s-turn jump.

After that its another berm, a roller, and this little step down.

After the step down, things get fun, you land down this huge hill and just get cooking.

First jump is a 20ft long and low, intimidating but that hill puts you right over it.

After that its 3 poppy doubles that are super fun.

There is is also another long and low right between two doubles and its super tight. If it catches you off guard you are fucked.

Thatas amazing. The best trails always come from some of the worst spots. Its amazing how restrictions nourish creativity.

Other people finally manned up to hit the berm gap.

Some idiot also cut out the tree, so now I am going to build that roller up bigger and make so you have to jump the gap.

I'd definitely have too many diggers than too many empty shovels. It rocks.

I agree.
This new spot got blown up within days, its actually at a busy intersection and visible from the road; however we have permission from the land owner which makes up for it. Its really motivating having 10+ people digging at a time, we actually have people fighting over shovels at times because there are more diggers than shovels.

The gap on ours is maybe 6 feet, really easy to clear. I had to make the berm rollable too because everyone was bitching about the gap, no one even wants to try it even though its super easy.
