    Here’s a few pics from our Tulsa Freeriders group ride a couple weeks ago at Cavanal Hill in Poteau, Oklahoma. It is the ‘World’s Highest Hill’ with an elevation of 1999’, one foot shy of being a mountain. So far we’ve found 2 DH trails, although there is plenty of other jeep trails around that we can hit, we just need a couple GPS’s and some walkie talkies. The runs take ~30 minutes each, and the shuttle is paved the whole way to the top. Good times………………….good times

    Here’s a few pics

    The crew, Steve, Joe, Denis and me


    View from the takeoff point


    The view looking down the first chute

    Denis, waaaaaaaay S T I L


    yours truly, same place


    Steve, same spot


    View of the end about ¾ the way down, you can see the cars in between the trees


    our awesome shuttle drivers


    Steve, on a nice drop we found at the end


    So, if anyone is ever in Oklahoma, and wants to do some downhillin’, let me know, and we’ll hit it up. I could only make 4 runs that day because my arms got soooooo pumped I couldn’t grab the back brake anymore.

    I think it was from the ledge about 10-12 feet above that kid in the blue shirt. XL drop I'd say.

    there's not enough tranny to jump from the top and gap that flat spot, it's about a 60* tranny from the ledge he's dropping off, and to be going fast enough to clear that from the top, you'd end up landing to almost flat at the bottom

    I thought OK was 100% flat; now I realize it's only 99.9% flat. Learn something new every day.
