Someone asked me to define freeride, after seeing some Rampage pics on my phone.  I explained that it is looking at something where no trail exists and seeing a line that would challenge your abilities.  Building a line and taking a deep breath before being the first human to ride something.  To me that is the spirit of freeride, the transition of an idea into a line and then into actually riding a bike on something new. My biggest issues with my description are: That the world has changed and we can't just go build stuff most places.  I don't love the first ride part of my description.  Is riding a new feature freeriding?  I don't know.  What I do know is there are a few lines near a local trail that I have been dreaming of riding for a couple years now.  The spirit of freeride to me is climbing up there and giving it a go.
