Mike is one lucky guy. He's got a downhill course and dirt jumps about a 1/4 mile behind his house. Today we needed to run a couple errands, so we decided to ride that area for a couple hours instead of trekking out to some far off trail.
The course was short and sweet. Just about a mile long, winding down the hill with bermed corners and small tabletops in between. The dirt jumps were even more fun. I didn't feel comfortable tackling most of them, but did hit a set of two that turned out to be pretty exciting. The best part was the view from the jumps. Below was the beachfront and in the distance you could see Santa Cruz Island.
