Parks Plan Update

Hello Bike Park advocates!  This is an important time in parks development for the south sound region and Olympia especially.

The 2016 Parks, Arts & Recreation Plan is in review and some updates are coming through.  The language for the bike park and the parcel on Kaiser road is still strong.

Summary of changes here.

Read the updated plan here.

Maintenance Season

Hello Bike Park Community!

While the weather has held out nicely, extending the dry riding season, the switch back to rain and fewer daylight hours is still upon us.  The change in seasons means a change in priorities for the pump track.  We’ll be monitoring and maintaining the track throughout the wet months ahead with a monthly work party on the 3rd Saturday of every month.  We hope to see you there!

Dates:
October 17th, 2015
November 21st, 2015
December 19th, 2015
January 16th, 2016

A Big Step Forward

On the morning of August 8th our pump track grand opening drew a small crowd of cycling community members.  Riders of all ages and ability levels came out to enjoy the well groomed pump track and obstacle course set up by our fantastic volunteer team.

We’d like to thank everyone who came to the event, the parks department for their support and all of the project sponsors who make our work possible.

Cheers to all of you!

August 8th Is Almost Here!

It’s almost time for our pump track, Phase I grand opening celebration this August 8th, 10am to noon at the Yauger Park Pump Track.  Please be sure to join us for fun bike related games and lemonade.  Don’t forget to bring your bike!  This is an event for all ages, whether you ride a strider or a 29er.

If you’re interested in helping us get the track in ship shape for August 8th, we’re having a work party this Sunday, August 2nd at 9am.  We would love to see our members there to help out and get ready for this big unveiling.

See you all soon!
