Building a fun bike jump out of wood

Building a fun bike jump out of wood

Today, we make the first of many jumps on Berm Peak, and it’s a small one. Despite its size, building this jump will teach us some important lessons, and lay the groundwork for a much bigger home improvement project next week.

See if you can guess why our new trail ends right at the bushes…
