No Akrigg but I'll give it a go.
thats why riding clip pedals is boring. it removes that ‘it kinda looks rideable but i’m not sure – oh well lets give it a go and see’ kind of approach.
sorry but that is cobblers*, yes I wouldn’t have ridden that tree but not because i ride in clips, it’s cause I value my testicles.

Slight up hill ending to the tree and the back tire slipped out under load.
Always reccy the landing/crash zone.
The stump meant a difficult/impossible ending so my intention was to reach the end and undertake a dramatic gymnastic dismount :)in my dreams.
The poor bike suffered a bent L/H crank arm 🙁 bit of a surprise because the only thing it hit was my now swollen bleeding shin and the back of my head when she fell on me 🙂
A right royal giggle though.Posted 5 years agoDezBSubscriber
Good effort on such a long tree!Posted 5 years ago
I did a tree once, got close to the end and jumped off.
Another ride went back and tried it again, big crowd of people, me not realising how wet the tree was this time. As soon as my front wheel touched… wham! off to the side. So so close to a direct face-tree plant. Spent the rest of the ride with a weird jittery feeling running through every fibre of my being..
