So I went over to Schmidt's trails after work today, the so called Wayside Trails. I'll be honest with you, I didn't expect a heck of a lot...maybe a medium sized 6 pack and a few rollers. Well props to Schmidty, the Wayside Trails are rad and I was actually too much of a weenie to jump the better portion of them. These trails require no pedaling, are downhill and fast as hell, have a 6 foot tall berm at the start to generate speed, and are big....like 15 foot gaps and 6 foot lips and landers big. Check out the pictures below to see some of the action. Since I didn't put in an effort riding I put in an effort as camera man and actually used a little bit of my monkey skills to ape my way up some trees for some cool overhead shots. Check it out!
