- Rivington steps question?
Not sure. Ridden most of those bits, but not that recently.
There’s a great run of steps (stone and horrible wooden ones), roots and so on that goes from the Pigeon Tower – all the way down to the bridge you are talking about. Its a great little area for mucking around on. I tend to head off to the left over the bridge, as that links down to some other great trails.
Have you got a photo of them? Or maybe a Streetmap linky?Posted 6 years ago

you dabbed on ice cream run and you should jump off the tarmac slab at the top you looked faster than I think i go down there but never done a video of myself and not done it FS for ages. I dont keep up with my mates on there generallyizakimakMember
junkyard does lie, i have some shonky video of him failing to make it to the bottom of some of the steps in the gardens even the gf made down them*. If i could be arsed learning how to post it i would.
*in fairness they are pretty steep with a tree on the outside of a corner for you to crash into but he was beaten by a girlie 😆Posted 6 years ago

that is the only time i have ever been in there and to be fair thanks for the flattering description as I actually failed to take the first corner on all my [3??] attempts.Posted 6 years ago
I do need to learn but apart from playing in there you dont encoutenr them on trails as a general rule but yes I have no steps skilzkaesaeMember
I would have ridden down those steps! I spent wednesday over at the water of leith some good steps to practice on, I was teaching one of my friends about cock pit familiarity and manipulations, attach possitioning and extra g braking and cornering!
Good day but 5 hours of cycling including a trip to corstorphine hill and I still feel a bit drained now, I will get some video of the stairs at the water of leith if I can be arsed!Posted 6 years ago
First easy flight (you can see the bridge in the background)
Leads to a right turn to this
which then leads into this tasty left hander, which is (just) rideable, but took me loads of attempts and then subsequent failures – but one clean run.
a more testing set of steeper steps, with a few slight turns like this
At this point, I thought things were going well, until I got to the next section, which most definitely is the crux – 😯
Erm, having had a long look at it, I think it is just just about rideable, but objectively pretty dodgy as it is really steep, tight, and there is a pretty big drop on the left, and an even bigger drop (over the fence) on the right.
So, c’mon then!Posted 6 years ago
