no problem

just ride it up, just be careful in winter you dont lose traction. because of the slime on the wood.

 

Or get a lttle steel or aluminium ramp made for the first bit,

 

Or if your still not happy get a builder to level it for you.

 

How dangerous can u be Dave??

Unusual

Garage/decking set up! :blink: Jawa's right about the grip bit, once decking ages a bit it can get V. slippery so watch out for that, there's some paint's on the market that may help with the grip, I've heard that Blackboard paint can work too as it needs a rough surface for the chalk to write on. Best of luck & ride safe:smile

 

P.S. Have you thought of spiked tyres :lol:  (sorry, couldn't resist!)

Ramp.

Having seen the photo and the good width of that ramp I'd fix roofing felt to it (for grip) and then ride the bike in and out. Safer that way.

that is going to be

very interesting, that bloomin decking gets like ice.:shock:...i personally would either get some decking strips that are impregnated with 'grippy' material (B & Q do it)or tack some steel mesh on to the bit you run on!...at least you haven't got a Harley to hoik up it !! :wink:

hmmm

You say 1st gear and walk with it up, but in winter and when moss sets in and ice i doubt if you will be able to walk up it let alone with bike, definatly get some grip.

Of this stuff should sort you out....

Grip tape

Don't forget to put some on the bit the bike goes up.... and some on the bit you walk up pushing it..!!
