you have a bunch of different options depending on where you are, the thing with urban is that u have to be creative to have fun and often times it means being creative with speed so you can actualy hit the rail. here are some tricks I know
1: building a starter : a slope made of wood usualy, with stairs... make sure you can cary it around
2: the pole boost from friends where they hold on to the end of your poles and pull or even run besides you. This usualy needs a starter
3: the car boost: you place yourself so that the car or trucks bumper is on your ass and you are facing forward. The car accelerates slowly, pushing you, and stopping a bit before the rail. this can give you a lot of speed but is scary.
4: pully system: you set up a car driving away from the rail with a cord attached to it. this cord goes through a metal railing near the rail or on it and you hold on to it. The rail serves as a pivot and gives you all of your speed.
5: speed bumps: if you can get a long run up that is not too steep, set up a series of rollers( bumps) that you will use to pump for speed
6:regular towe: get a sled or 4 weeler or car to towe you
hope these tricks help and good luck on hitting those rails
