I recenly found some boardwalk in the woods near my flat, it's very well constructed (even if it does get in the way of a perfectly good bit of natural trail) but it seems a tad "large" for my liking - there's a ramp and gap onto the first section that must be ~4-5ft across, and its not exactly in a fast run-up area. Add to that the fact that there might be chicken-wire on it but its still slippery as girl on motorbike.
There's then some boring and easily rideable sections and then a second even larger gap. I could probably gap jump the rear in a trials fashion if I put my mind to it, but the idea is obviously to hit it fast and smooth. Fast and smooth on mossy wood instills images of death to me.
What am I missing, other than balls (it seems!) - I can't even bring myself to attempt it because the potential damage is huge if I get it wrong or faceplant.
