just curious, if you pedal to your local trail, im not talking about driving or shuttle, for how long do you pedal?

i can shuttle my local Dh but pedaling from my house to the trail it takes me about an hour and half. the Dh run takes me around 20 minutes to complete and some 40 minute pedaling back up to do the Dh run again...

and then my friends and i just get on the highway on our bikes... haha probably the best part because its very steep down.

Are you saying you ride a DH bike on roads for 1 1/2 hours to get to your riding spot? Ever think of making friends with someone with a car?

not a Dh bike. my FR bike should be getting here in around two weeks ( I dont live in the united states) so im currently riding a XC bike ( i know it sucks, but its what i have right now). sometimes instead of shuttling we preffer to pedal ( sweat off that beer belly)

btw, i DO jump, huck, drop my Xc bike... ive ridden the sh/t out of it.

I pedal to the top of the downhill (2 hours) or half way to a second downhill run (1 hour) and then I shuttle.

I think it's great if you pedal to the trailhead, and I've done it a few times. But life gets so damn busy with a wife, two kids, and a job that every minute counts. I drive to the trailhead so I can get more "quality" riding time, which means on dirt, not the road.

my local jumps and downhill trails are 15 minutes away.to get to the top of the run it takes about a half an hour and takes matbe 5-10 minutes to get down. I have a 2006 coiler deluxe so it is ok at pedaling but even better at downhill. I am extremely lucky to live 15 minutes away from some of the best jumps and downhill trails.

I drive to the trail. Ride to the top (or walk)
I never rode to the trail. Who wants to ride a 45 lb FR bike 4 miles to a DH trail not me!

It's 105kms to Bromont. So I drive :)
Any cool local trails are really short and or no bikes allowed. Damn cops on bikes.
