OK, now I have to get the new Garmin. Strava KOM for hang time!I just finished a test ride of the new section, did three loops of the jump circuit in 94*F. Only ~4 miles, but on the last climb back up, I was feeling it! This is what the new berms / turns look like which now in essence are the entry into the jump line. I still want to tweak the entry to the first berm a smidge, and clean up the exit, but overall it rides pretty dang good!

According to my new Garmin my longest hang time was just over a second and 12' distance at 15 mph with a total jump distance of over 100 feet throughout the ride. No more riding for me today, it's getting toasty out there!
The new Garmin filmed that for me as well! I decided to order the wheel sensor to increase distance accuracy. It is definitely reporting shorter than my Ionic. I switch bikes / wheelsets a lot though so we will see how that works. I guess it will auto-calibrate your wheel size using the GPS as you ride, so if that's true, that pretty cool and will help. The touchscreen is super responsive, impressively so. I should get some sweat and humidity on it next week in North Carolina. I will have a piece of cardboard in my pack "just in case"...OK, now I have to get the new Garmin. Strava KOM for hang time!
Roger that, by the time I parked, my car registered 72... got geared up, started rolling and actually felt like I needed another layer. This was after coming from Cupertino/Los Gatos, which was registering over 100 on my car therm.I've seen 20F drops from the top lot at Skeggs to the bridges at the bottom.
It's local NorCal, public, and probably a lot closer than you would guess. I've been building it solo for the last three years and just this season finally have someone else serious about helping and shares a similar vision on what we want the trail to be. Another interesting aspect is "building" is a loose term. Technically the entire area is just linked together cow trails and as a result the riding is rough. Think of it as chunky flow but it's not rocks, it's janky dirt. I know that really turns some people off, but it will be forever what it is with this trail system.Where is this? looks super fun.
