The longest ride we clocked last year was about 24 miles continuous. Most were in the 15-20 range.

Awesome! Yeah that length of ride is perfect.

Tightest turn radius is 7m. So go and try to make a U turn in a 14M wide road/Gap between two garbage bins.

We have contingency plans for if the turns are too tight. So do not fret.

Yes it’s meant to look like the ESN logo, kinda

Whoa alright! how do you know where you’re going? Is there a system to the cones?

The track will be more clear when you ride it, we used a minimal amount of cones just for planning out the track

Such an awesome fucking track. It’s going to be amazing!

It’s about 300m long. Jackson and I were getting about 40 to 45 second laps with just one board on the track, times will probably be a bit longer with more boards racing wheel to wheel.

We tried to keep the whole track about 7m wide on average to leave plenty of space for wheel to wheel racing, but there are spots where it narrows to make things interesting. We need to get more racers on the track at once to test out the maximum capacity.
