Default Trail Riding

     

To All -

Any recommendations or experiences trail riding? I have some land (not mine - but the owner doesn't care if I ride) which has some trails... Mostly old truck trails (ruts) which are on a slope (not too bad but enough to make a bike want to slide down the hill)... off the trail there is grass which seems to be "slippery" to any back tire. The trail itself has some rock, but mostly loose dirt, kind of sandy, not clay or mud.

There is quite a bit of land, anyone have idea's on making new trails, riding the existing ones, or making things interesting? What are the standards for safe riding on trails? I'm looking for some fun but don't have any ideas (don't want to get hurt all alone with no one around - on these trails, I ride alone.........so if i crash.... that's it, until someone finds me).

Thanks!

jimmy,
I have a similar place where i can ride and screw around. the best thing i have found is find the grassy areas, and come up with a course or trail or what ever you like. go really slow over it a few laps then pick it up a bit and every time you go over it the grass will get tore up and it seems every time you go over the traction just gets better and better i have been playing with mine for about two month and it already has some pretty good berms!
Take care,
Gus
