Progress continues at the bike park this weekend with a two-day build on tap. The plan is to complete the expert pump track.
The beginner and intermediate tracks are rideable. However, Kevin Knorr, Ryan McMaster and Ryan Hicks – who have been involved with design and ongoing improvements – have reported that quite a bit of additional work remains.
We would like everyone to be aware that this is a work in progress. A huge amount of planning has gone into this project, but it will take some time and a lot of work before things are perfected.
We have a number of things on the schedule for August. We will likely be recruiting small crews to assist.
- Dirt work on all three tracks so that riders can attain max speed
- Armoring of all perimeter berms with rock to discourage people from riding over them and breaking them down
- Construction of the elevated area near the start of the jump lines
- Construction of the base of all three jump lines
