    Yeah that too. Ir's much easier to jump off the bike when standing.

    Where there's a will there's a way.

    My knee was feeling pretty good so I thought I'd be careful and we went back to the new section of power line to try and break through and loop back to our regularly traveled logging roads. There is also a section that looks groomed somehow so we wanted to see why it looked funny from google earth.

    We could have took a long detour around the swamp.

    But plywood road looks more fun. It was over 200 feet long, partially rotten, and almost a foot above the mud. Proceeded with caution.

    Made it to the other side.

    The otherside! Here we found our way back on a logging road that connects to regular riding areas.

    Back to some familiar roads again. Mission successful!

    Here's a google earth shot.

    And a close up.

    I wonder who built this and how this was done.

    Congrats on the connection loop. I often use Google maps for the same purpose. Thank you for sharing your ride and pics.

    As for the plywood, my only guess would be that it gets extremely muddy and perhaps being a powerline trail, they need some traction for any possible bad weather repairs or maintenance. Just a guess.

    I think the ATV guys lay down the plywood. We have some roads that have been plastered with it. It is ok when dry, but living in Rainey Haney that is not too often and that stuff becomes slick. Also does not help that it is on a hill.

    Plywood certainly isn't cheap, either.

    My guess is that the local ATV assoc. pulled together and used material from torn down out buildings to get over the marshy section. It's quite a patch work. With log sleepers under it I wonder if it would float if the area flooded enough. lol

    edit...

    Friend who does masonry said it's likely from concrete forms....good call. I think he nailed it.

    I don't know...anyone that avoids wearing the proper gear and thinks that they can plan their accidents to avoid injury is headed for trouble. I think a lot of us have learned that lesson!

    I said ride how you're dressed. If you're not being protected then take less risks.

    It comes down to risk assessment.....if being immobilized by "protective gear" makes you topple over then it's not simple protecting you all the time. If I was jumping an MX bike ten feet in the air at over 60km or climbing a rock face like Graham Jarvis then yeah more protective equipment may be needed. But when placing your foot with no ankle movement compromises your footing on uneven ground then the rest of your body is at risk.

    How many pro skateboarders have you seen wearing protective equipment unless it's on a large half pipe?
