Upper Loch Ness
« on: May 30, 2008, 04:05:11 PM »
I am a beginning rider and ive been hooked on mountain biking for about 3 weeks now.
I've been going to Boyette alot b/c its close to home and it has a bunch of easy trails. The one trail i have most trouble with is upper Loch Ness. I always get stuck on the climb near the end..the one with the black plastic stuff and clay. Any Tips or tricks i should try?

Thanks,  Trauma


P.S. I also get lost alot in the NE section of the park......

momentum - you have to have it going on the black plastic or you will spin out...pick a good line and use the speed to make it

I usually come at it as fast as I can and then pop my front tire up over the steep part of the climb, I'm pretty much wheeling my front tire over the hard part then power the rear tire over it. if that makes sense.

Hey Ellsrider!

I think FACTORe is the first to post a dancing chicken video. Could you check the records so we can make it official? :o


For some reason I can't stop watching it. :(
