Two Turntables and a Microwave is one of the shorter downhills at Sandy Ridge. It packs in a lot of excitement in a short amount of time.

The route begins at the end of Quid Pro Flow and an intersection with Three Thirty Eight. Drop in off a shallow rock slab and then whip through a few tight berms. From there the trail stretches out and travels pretty fast into a big berm with a view out into the valley.

The bottom portion of the trail is fast, loose and tight. Have fun and hang on tight

At the bottom the trail joins Hide and Seek above a major creek crossing. Check your speed before rumbling over the wet armored section that make a tight right hand turn into a bridge.

      Generally dry and soft, tacky dirt. Few low spots with poor drainage.

      Rocks and roots are pretty slick from rain and moist conditions. Still awesome riding. Just be aware that the slippery rocks are unforgiving

       Probably the best trail here. Has flow, humps and burns all taken with speed! Great fun

       It's a fine trail, but nothing much happens. The first few hundred feet are nice built flow with some big berms and gaps that can be pumped or aired, but then it just starts relentlessly straight-lining you to warp speed. It's fun, but it's not 5 out of 5 stars fun

       A few fast straights with little bumps, rocks, and roots here and there. Nothing too thrilling, and the corners take away most of your speed. A lot more could be done with the upper section of this network... steeps and skids, anyone? Plenty of potential
