Making our backyard airbag jump twice as fun

Making our backyard airbag jump twice as fun

This week, we couldn’t really stomach a big and complex build. We decided it was time to bring the airbag back out, but not without tuning up the approach. The new Airbag trail is quicker, safer, and more fun than ever before. Also in this video, Alexander tries the airbag for the first time.

Today, we lost someone special

Drama Playlist Yesterday, we lost Drama, who we all know from this channel and from Berm Peak Express. Although he was old, it was far too early for him. When it became evident that something was wrong with him, we did everything for him that we would have done for a human being. After the… Continue Reading

Building & Riding the Backyard Drama Drop 2.0!

The old Drama Drop was the very first mountain bike feature I had ever built for this YouTube channel. It was a pretty sketchy drop in the front yard of Berm Creek, which used a hillside as a landing. Now, we’re building a replacement feature here on Berm Peak! Still, building a Drama Drop isn’t… Continue Reading

Building a gnarly backyard rock garden by hand

Building a gnarly backyard rock garden by hand

Berm Peak is missing one thing: Rocks! How I chose a property with no rocks to build mountain bike trails on is beyond me. I didn’t even know dirt with no rocks in it was even a thing. In any case, we’re taking matters into our own hands today, bringing in some rocks, and placing… Continue Reading

Building a steep skinny bridge on a fallen elm tree

Building a steep skinny bridge on a fallen elm tree

A string of tornados and storms passed through the Southeastern US, and Berm Peak took a bit of a beating! This weekend, Alexander and I turn a downed Elm into a really fun skinny mountain bike bridge named Elm’r Fudd. This was a challenging feature to build, but it was even more challenging to ride.… Continue Reading

Finally! We built a trail to the bottom of Berm Peak

Today, we’ll build a mountain bike trail to the very bottom of Berm Peak. My backyard trails will never be the same! Along the way we’ll get a history lesson, discuss my methodology in building this trail, and then break in the loam for the first time. Until this COVID thing is over, we’ll need… Continue Reading

Berm Peak’s Trailhead gets a huge upgrade!

Berm Peak’s Trailhead gets a huge upgrade!

Today’s project may not be the most exciting, but it will make Berm Peak a lot more functional. I’ve been meaning to build this trail fo some time, as a more direct climbing route to the Flight Deck for both mountain bikes and supplies. Because the trail connects Berm Peak trailhead with the driveway via… Continue Reading
