Thanks everybody for the positive feedback. The kid's are enjoying it very much. So far no injuries besides some minor cuts (knocking on wood). The wood is holding up well to the constant barage of teenage boys, and I bought a tarp just in case it rains. I will post more pictures when I have time.

Really neat!!

Built a ton of ramps growing up. If the plywood starts to splinter, you could re-cover it with masonite. Very smooth, and doesnt splinter. Little slippery, but the kids will get used to it. You even installed a coping!! (the pvc type tube you got up at the top of the transition). If the neighbors complain about the noise, try closing off the pack of the ramp with plywood, basically box in the back, as this will muffle the sound. Throw in some junk under there as well to help deaden the echo.

good job!!

Very cool. I built several ramps when I was a teenager. Even had one I could fit in the back of my Celica and haul around town to ride up walls.

Back then we never wore helmets/pads. Everything healed.
