Ramps at MK 16
« on: March 03, 2016, 07:30 AM »
The last couple of years have really been amazing with the ramps, that 8ft quarter pipe is so old school and I look forward to riding it all year. However last year as there was a small half pipe & spine there were quite a few scooters, often getting in the way of us oldies & I think even putting a hole in one of the ramps at one point.

If Radi Ramps is still happy to supply ramps (i really hope so!) could we just have the 8ft quarter & the trick ramp we had back in MK14? This is more of an old school set up that caters for our needs & may mean there's fewer kids on scooters? It would also free up a bit of space for a the odd cherry picker & flatlanding radness & also less work setting up & taking down. Please make ramps happen again this year  :smitten:

Whats your thoughts fellow ramp riders?

The ramps will be there (i believe) and hopefully there will be a ban on scooters.

What Pickle said. Rather have a good setup and define who an use them than just build a setup that no one wants to ride.

Good stuff...this was perfect, maybe even without that spine, just a kickturn ramp & that quarter, warm sunny day, heaven..   :smitten:

TwoBobRob chat with ED209

We should just go for the big quarter plus one other obstacle as just discussed

- Big quarter plus flat bank would have the most appeal in my eyes

I would agree
Against common thinking I would suggest perhaps we don't put them opposite one another
But we can decide that on the day

- agreed ... next to each other maybe

Correct
People can session either that way

- quarter exactly where it was last year .. 8ft flat bank with platform to the right of the quarter where the 4ft quarter was

Yep

- distance jump ramp and grind box on the flat

... so there you have it folk ... the volcano and 4ft quarters are out ... 'big wedge ramp / flat bank with platform on' is in ... next to each other so two people can ride at once ...

Scooters are only allowed on if theres no BMXs riding - same as last year  :daumenhoch:

Good work Ed and TwoBob :daumenhoch:

The two side by side means two at a time can ride. Couldn't ask for better :coolsmiley:










(I did love that volcano though, once my balls had grown big enough to tackle the bugger :2funny: )

Hi everyone.

I don't know how good your memories are of the flat bank from MK14 but I found it to be a little steep for kickturns. My instinct is to cut you lot a fresh one a little mellower than it's predecessor.

Opinions please?

Maybe not as much of an issue if it's wider ... persoanlly I found it fine ... but I guess we should go for the classic 80 wedge ramp angle

This rides nice, this is my ramp on my front drive







About 3 1/2 ft tall, 8 ft wide, perfect for kickturns & small trick ramp tricks. I toyed with the idea of an 8ft quarter pipe but though it was just to dam dangerous & will end up with broken bones, i've only had a few cuts from this & my kids use it as a den when im riding.

Splodge - regarding the angle, your ramp is pretty much what I'm imagining in my head for MK16.

I tried a few 540 kickturns on my ramp and my back wheel let go each time which is what led me to consider a mellower ramp.

Obviously I'll wait for a few more opinions before I take saw to wood but yours looks to be better suited to the job.

I fancy 4ft high and 12ft wide. Plenty of room for the doubles contest....... :D

4ft high would be cool ... Splodge's one looks under 3ft to me?

Sadly, neither did I mate.

I'd be surprised if they were as high as 4ft though.
