Maiden voyage on the new "retirement" bike. Visiting from MI, great trails.

A very dangerous portion of Green's Lick. A small but blind jump landing on rough terrain. Claimed my shoulder, wrist, and collar bone.

The perfect blend of natural gnar and machine-built flow, Green's Lick is an exceptional purpose-built trail that features jumps, drops, and berms. 1.9mi — 0h 06m
