Not recommended for Beginners. This is one of the few SJMTB rides where most of the riders come out in full face helmets, body armor, flat pedals, and long travel full suspension bikes.
Here's a Video of our last session: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lN18XDlvlg4
The upper section of Boyscout offers these awesome tapered ramps on a very wide, flat trail. You can attempt jumps at your own comfort level from only inches off the ground to doing a full double. It really does a lot to build confidence and skill, especially since many of you that have ridden with me know that I'm a complete amateur when it comes to catching air.
Honestly this ride has attracted many advanced beginners looking to learn the first bits about jumping and they've done fine so long as they ride within their skill set. We always come out much braver and confident when we go to try stunts at other trails -- especially at Demo Forest.
The climbs here are very short so don't expect to get a workout. You can basically ride a downhill bike for most of the way to the top.
As always a helmet and a properly maintained bicycle is required for all SJMTB rides. Body armor is highly recommended if you plan to push the limits of your skillset and comfort zone.
If it rains heavily during the week before the ride, I will have to cancel since it will pretty much destroy the trails if we do ride.
