Our test riders were my two kids, and while they enjoyed riding the course they were a tad bored during the set up.
Earlier in the weekend we went out and bought supplies, and did the necessary carpentry (minimal) to create our course marking stakes.
Then we headed out to the school to test out our design.
We came armed with 48 stakes and decided when all was said and done we will need 68.
Our course will measure 450 feet in length with three 80-90 foot straightaways; an "s-works" section; three 90 degree turns; one 180 degree turn; all ending in a 50' home stretch.
We will use about 800 feet of field tape to mark the course.
The test riders liked our course, my seven year old said it was hard to ride through because she had to "slow down in the turns" (kind of the point).
First time, by myself with, no real plan, I set and marked the entire course on 27 minutes. Two coaches and a plan can do it much faster.
It's a good course (rideable yet challenging) and should only get easier to set as we get familiar with it on a weekly basis.
