Talking Ever built a bike ramp?

I'm sure most of you built one. Have you also seen a failure?

Oh the memories I have had lol
We used a pieces of wood and tires.
A few broken bike frames and a few scrapes and bruises.
But we had fun not like the kids glued to the phone or games

A basic rite of passage. Any able kid who misses it, misses out.

Never had the need to build one. There was a tree right next to the street with a sizeable root that worked just as well.

Used a broken concrete slab as a ramp, I have the x-rays to prove that it did not go well. I guess have have matured a bit.
