    Default Bright - Hero trail

    I've just spent the day riding the new trail at Bright; Hero...

    http://flowmountainbike.com/post-all...il-for-bright/

    This trail is freaking awesome fun. The start has a bunch of good sized kickers with an A & B line, and so many twisting turning berms it blew my mind. While I can't compare it to Flowtown or anything apart from the Youies, this track makes me giggle and is therefore unreal;)

    EDIT: The clip below is not me: it is of a friend of a friend's cousin's brother's neighbor.

    Nice stuff. Looks great.

    Did you pedal back up or shuttle?

    What's either option like?

    That looks awesome Mike. Are the jumps doable for mere mortal weekend warriors? How do they compare to say - the final jump on Cressy?

    I rode up the first time, which I really enjoyed, it isn't too crazy, though we then shuttled the remaining runs in my mates hilux...

    I find the final jump on Cressy has a really tight transition. These (Hero B line) are poppy though have a more relaxed transition (if that makes sense) and while they scare me I felt pretty comfortable on the smaller ones after a few runs. While it felt super awesome getting "big" air, I'm sure my "big" air was maybe 10-15cm's;)

    My favorite hits were the hip/crossover kickers that were so much fun...

    We're planning on doing the National Round at Beauty in Feb and thinking of tacking on a small Bright detour to that trip.
    I have begun and I shall not rest until I have eradicated hope from the Earth.
    Think on this and be dismayed.

    How's the trail holding up?

    I was there for the opening day and by the end of the day it was pretty dusty with a couple of brake bumps starting. There were about 100 riders or more there on that day though.

    I can agree that the hero trail is absolutely awesome, although unless you are a god you will have a tough time climbing all the way up mystic mountain more than once :/
