Building and riding a skinny north shore style feature - MTB dream yard is slowly starting to get crazy! Me and Tom Cardy make a sketchy mountain bike skinny bridge between two trees and face the fear! Would you ride this?
I invite Tom Cardy to my new house so we can build a skinny north shore bridge across two trees about 8ft in the air, the idea seemed like a good one at the start but as we kept building it got more and more sketchy and I almost wished we hadn't started it but once the crazy feature was built it was time to get out our bikes and try it. Me and Tom were both using our Ghost enduro bikes as they seemed to be the best choice for such a feature. This is Tom's cup of tea but certainly not mine so I was very scared whilst trying to get across this stupid idea! The build didn't take to long and i'm not sure how long it will stay in the back yard for but it was definitely a fun experience and i'm excited to add more ridiculous rideable things to the back yard!
I hope you enjoy the video!

    Sam you probably won’t see this but if you do I think you should get a impact driver to replace you drill they are so much better and stronger than a normal drill 👍

    Hi Sam for an idea I was thinking maybe you could make another one cross through the on that's already there and make it like whoever gets to the joint first gets to go on and try to win to the ground while the other has to stop where the joint is balance then start going again. And whoever gets there bike on the ground first-wins

    A sign of age starting to set in when the fear and common sense start to come together. It happens to us all sooner or later, funny how that works.

    Double but between the gap is the flat big branch of one of the trees, so you can bonk on the branch or do foot plants or other mad steezy tricks

    You should put a ramp on one side of the skinny and landing on the other side. So you can jump over the skinny.

    As a carpenter I can count the ways this could’ve been made way more functional and safe on one hand. But ultimately it’s not my build now is it?
