Pacifica (Boyscout) Jump! Jump!

This was such a blast last month we're heading back.

This ride is for advanced-beginners/ lower-intermediates and up. Though if you're a true beginner--or not comfortable with jumps and drops at all--you're still welcome to come along to watch, then return on the paved fire road to avoid the trail all together. The ride up is relatively easy with one steep incline at the very end (30-40 meters at >12%).

For those who haven't been here before, I'll be leading a full loop of the entire course on the first ride up. Consider this a small tour of sorts. There are some very fun jumps, drops and berms in this lower section with some mind blowing jumps available for very advanced riders as well. I won't even consider hitting these but they're fun to point out. I'll also be stopping at intersections to point out optional trails for those who want to take an easier route back to the parking area. After that I'm returning to the upper section to session the jumps there.

Since the ramps on the upper section have tapered sides there are multiple levels of difficulty for practicing jumps. You can easily pop off the sides for practice and confidence building or get some bigger air by taking the crease. The run outs are long & level and the berth is wide, so you don't have to worry about trees and such. It's also just as easy to ride around anything you're not comfortable with.

ACHTUNG!  A helmet is required, and for those jumping protective gear for the body is highly recommended. Please bring along water, snacks and willingness to challenge yourself, but don't go crazy.

I'm heading over to PUERTO 27 for some for lunch afterward. http://puerto27.com/

    wasn't much footage to work with, with the trail being so short but here is some of the footage from today.

    Challenging, but lots of fun. I think everybody got out of their comfort zone a bit! Thanks for setting this up Chaz (even though he was too banged up to ride), and thanks to Vinh for driving us.

    Since this isn't the kind of ride that requires intersection waits and such, I don't see a reason to put a limit on the number of attendees. Let's roll (and jump).

  • Randy C.

    I'll probably head out for this - might head farther up the hill for some nasty too.

      With that bike, all remaining upgrades have to do with the pilot. :)

    Leems talked me into making room for you. It will be good to see Vihn again.

    • Vinh P.

  • Chaz

    I'm going to create a duplicate meetup on San Jose MTB's calendar, so anyone on this wait list can head over there and sign up if you want to go. If you're not a part of SJmtb, please let me know and I'll do some reassigning to make room.

    July 10, 2013

    • Mark

      I can create it on sjmtb if you want and then drop off this ride

      July 10, 2013

    • Chaz

      Thanks for the offer Mark, but it's already done. If there are any dual-members that wouldn't mind moving over, Vinh and Eric will be added automatically to this one.

      July 10, 2013

  • Mark

    Just doing boyscout ?

    July 9, 2013

    • Chaz

      Yes, this is for us intermediates who are skill building for XXX and The Crack ... and some of us don't have DH's anyway. Cort normally organizes the Gnar-Balls stuff so keep your ear to the ground if you want nutso DH stuff :D

      July 9, 2013

    • Mark

      That's fine just wanted to clarify for myself.
