How to Build a Roll-in Jump for Kids with Eric Porter

Rad dad Eric Porter is back with the beta on how to build a MTB/BMX roll-in jump. To no one’s surprise, Porter’s kids are quickly progressing on two-wheels and have outgrown the small pump track jumps in their backyard. They’re not quite ready for Porter’s massive dirt jumps, but instead, need a new medium-sized line that will steadily progress their skills.

With the help of his sons, Milo and Owen, and no shortage of dad jokes, Porter walks us through how to build a kid-friendly roll-in. The ramp takes a bit of carpentry and work, but as Porter shows, it’s a great project to do with the whole family.

thanks guys for this article, definetely will be trying the jump roll in out when im on my vacation days from my towing job

We've seen Rémy Métailler take on most of the trails in this video before, but never like this.

VIDEO: Meet the Mastermind Behind Crested Butte’s World Class Trails

While most people agree that mountain biking really started on Mt. Tam in Marin County, California in the 1970s, a separate origin story can be traced back to Crested Butte, Colorado. There, also in the 1970s, pioneering rider Don Cook started riding bikes on the vast network of high-alpine singletrack hiking and mining trails. Cook laid the groundwork for what has become a world-class mountain bike destination with hundreds of miles of stunningly beautiful riding. RELATED: Blood Sweat and

It’d be pretty cool to try to go upside down with the trailer in the back. -Danny MacAskill When words like that are spoken by one of the greatest mountain bikers to ever live, you better get working as a filmmaker. Working on the famous Danny Daycare video certainly brought it fair share of WTF moments, but nothing beats the trailer flip. Of course, it took months of work and hundreds of tries to stomp the maneuver, but that’s just a regular day’s work for Danny. RELATED: VIDEO – BTS of
