Are You Ready For a Bike Park?
CORBA has been working to bring bike parks to Southern California for some time. Since CORBA volunteers built their first pump track (on a private property) in 2007, we’ve been watching the community bike park movement grow and accelerate around us.
We’ve had some success. Fillmore Bike Park is now officially open and available to ride. Thousand Oaks included bike park facilities in their recently approved plans for Sapwi Trails Community Park. Kernville has a bike park and BMX track. These are the result of dedicated mountain bikers showing up to meetings and asking for them, then following through to make it happen.
Our neighboring IMBA Chapters in Orange, San Diego and Riverside Counties are all working on bringing bike parks to their communities. Now we’re ready to ask Los Angeles.
In January, the Los Angeles Dirt Park Collective was formed. CORBA has joined the Collective in their mission to bring pump tracks, dirt jumps, and bike parks to Los Angeles. We know there’s demand, but at this stage we need to let the decision makers know just how great that demand is.
How can you get involved? Right now we need a show of support. Follow the L.A. Dirt Park Collective on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/LADirtPark
