      DO NOT RIDE WHEN RAINING. Me and my friend ride this while it was raining and we got tons of mud on our wheels, clogging up our front and back...

       Fun flowy trail, not very difficult but a good time. Couple little jumps and one slightly bigger one that is easily bypassed but a lot of fun to hit.
