Uni Riding Locations

this is the thread to tell everyone where you go the most to have a good cruise or for a good frequent challenge, for trials, street or muni or what eva u ride!

my favourite spot to ride is at the local school where there is stairs, drops, hops, rails, beams, logs, and playgrounds. Its my fav spot, but im moving houses soon so i will have to find a new spot :slight_smile:

We (my brother and I) ride all over town, but we have a high concentration of schools nearby, and those usually have nice trial objects. My favorite spots are always construction sites, but those tend to be hard to get to, so we have to climb over fences, and crawl under stuff in order to get at my line, not to mention that people would rather not have you there, so I can only go there on sundays and saturdays. There’s also an old building nearby, which has some cool lines, and an occasional visit to the local hospital also yields some nice lines. All these lines are beginning to get slightly stale and old though, so I might go out of town soon to try my luck in Amsterdam.

I want to go to Amsterdam…

If I feel like distance riding, there’s a sidewalk that runs for miles and miles down the highway…although I’d rather ride more scenic trails in the mountains…

If I feel like trials, I either make a trials course or go to a construction site (which there are plenty of, here).

There are no “street” obstacles. I don’t live near anything close to a city.

i go in front of my house, but sometimes ill go to a school. or like an outdoor basketball court. i dont really do anything that requires any obstacles. just straight tricks. sometimes when i want to go for a distance ride (like once a month) ill go about 4 miles up to a high bridge right on the ocean, where people just come and fish and its a neat area.

My local neighborhood…neighborhood. I just sort of ride around the sidewalk and streets. But then again, I’m still just riding, not doing tricks yet, so that may change.

I’m a university student, so there’s plenty of stairs, ledges, etc right outside my dorm. For longer rides we have around a 20 mile network of bike/hiking trails that run throughout the city, along the river, adjacent to some bogs, through some woods, past some farmland, and generally other nice places to ride past and through.

Unfortunately right now I’m stuck at my parents’ house, which gives me little more than the small subdivision to ride around in. The only ways out of the subdivision are via dinky country roads with no shoulders that now carry far more traffic than they were designed to, which I don’t like riding on.

Now it’s winter and dark by the time I get home from work, I ‘do’ pavements or freemounting practice outside my house. At the weekend or holiday I either go distance along the prom or along a ftotpath that used to be the old railway track. I would like to find longer tracks - for either MUni or distance riding as I don’t like riding on the road but I’m not having much luck at the moment. There’s also a car park that I like that’s very quiet where I practice stuff like riding in circles on my 29er.
