Squamish is riddled with these narrow bridges. I run them but also bike them, before getting target fixation on a stump and falling off the side.
Trailrunners and bikers use them all the time. If bikers are killing trailrunners they are doing a good job of burying the bodies before anyone finds out. Actually, maybe that's why I see new rollers popping up on pumptracks from time to time... hmm.
While we have the NSMBAs ear, I find berms really inconsiderate for hikers. I have to run at a pretty fast pace to generate the required centripetal force to make those corners, it can get tiring when the berms are stacked one after the other.
I suggest one of two options:
- LeeL builds concrete overpasses at all berms
- LeeL demolishes all berms and replaces them with a water feature of some kind.
