    Ok, in my woods I have planned to build a roll-in and a few new jumps where there used to be ladders. Roll-in will be a rectangular platform, about 7.25 feet tall built on the very edge of my property line. Along one long edge is the property line, so I cant build anything there. (clockwise) The next edge, short edge, is near some trees and inconvinient to access. The next long edge will be where the roll-in will go down and a few ladders will branch out. The last edge, short, is near some small trees and an uphill trail. What I need help on is this: I need to make an easy way to get my bike up onto the top without using too much energy (so I can do it over and over and over....). But, clearly, I dont have a ton of room. I can build a ladder for people to climb up, so how should I get bikes up? (this has to be done by a single person).

    Could you build a ladder to ride up from one side? Like this -> http://www.ridemonkey.com/forums/showthread.php?t=134983

    In the FR forum, I read something about Dangerous Dan trying to build an elevator w/ pulleys and weights. Maybe you could do something complicated like that.

    So, I got an idea that will work, and made a very, very, very quick drawing of it. I think you should get the idea by looking at it.

    That looks good. You could make some drops/step downs off the side.
