Do you ever dream you could head out to the local park to play on a pump track, practice riding some skinnys, or take turns hitting some wall rides & jumps with your friends? Maybe you just wish there was well-made, legal singletrack within your city parks. SF Urban Riders has been hard at work, pushing those dreams that much closer to reality.SF Urban Riders has released the first conceptual draft of a draft of a potential Bicycle Skills Park in San Francisco's McLaren Park
. This exciting step is the first of many towards developing an improved trail network and a world class bicycle park within San Francisco city limits.
The group has undergone a fair amount of growth and development over the last year, and along with officially becoming a non profit chapter of the International Mountain Bike Association (IMBA), has selected an interim board of directors and launched a completely revamped website:http://sfurbanriders.org
SF Urban Riders is hosting a public meeting and social this coming Wednesday, 5/27/09 from 6-8pm at Sports Basement Potrero Hill. Come out to meet your fellow mountain bike advocates and get involved with the development of trails and bicycle skills parks in San Francisco. SF Urban Riders will be showing off their newest conceptual maps for McLaren Park trail and bike park improvements, giving a tour of the website and seeking public feedback and suggestions.
