The Refuge is an amusement park of well-built bike stunts designed for riders of a high skill level. We only tried some of the less intimidating obstacles - a pump track, some raised platforms, a teeter-totter, some stepped ramps...for we are not riders of a high skill level. But many more stunts were break-your-neck scary! Not for the timid or noob mountain biker! That said, this park is awesome.
It's a good thing we were smart enough to stick to the stunts that we did judging by the bruises and scrapes that we came away with. I've got a couple nice purple streaks up the back of my leg from falling off a 4-foot high platform after stalling out on the way up the ramp. At least I wasn't on the 10-foot high rollers or the jump that dropped into a valley below. Wow.
I may not have ridden too many obstacles myself, but I did take some video of my friends attempting them. Below is my first try at editing a video with the FlipShare software. Definitely room for improvement, but a fun video to watch. (By the way, the guy in red is the hubby!)
I hope you enjoy the crashes. ;)
