Bank

( NOUN/ COLLOQUIAL)

Bicycling (South Africa) - - ASK -

AKA ‘Banked Turn’, AKA ‘Berm’. An em­bank­ment on an MTB trail sloped at any­thing un­der 90 de­grees, al­low­ing high-speed turn­ing. Of­ten con­fused, by our non- cy­cling brethren, with the thing you broke to buy your lat­est all-singing, all­danc­ing car­bon steed. Baf­fle peo­ple at par­ties by say­ing, “I fi­nally broke the bank at Ma­jik For­est on my Scott Spark 900 RC.”
