The Lumberyard is positioning itself to be the premier indoor bike park operator in the Pacific Northwest. With the initial location slated for Portland, Oregon, the Lumberyard will deliver year-round riding opportunities to fulfill a latent need for recreational cyclists of all types, ages and abilities.


The Lumberyard features beginner/sport/expert sections, a foam pit, rhythm & jump lines, a BMX street park, pump/race tracks, XC loop and much more. It will be more than a riding venue and will serve as a community cycling hub and a world-class training facility. Skills workshops, day camps, private instruction, races/competitions, demo days will all be offered at the Lumberyard. It will include a concession counter with food and drink, a cafe lounge for parents and an event room for special events, parties and club meetings. Additionally, the Lumberyard will have a small retail & service shop, providing replacement parts and rental services for bikes and safety equipment.


Lumberyard MTB, LLC has hired mangai.rollin, a mountain sports marketing agency to handle marketing services and media relations. For additional information, please contact: info@mangai- rollin.com

 Despars,
You just aren't old enough to drive 20 - 60 minutes to get to some of the most epic riding that California has! :-) I'll ask your Dad if you can go with us sometime. Also, sell that beast and get a 6" travel bike and pedal up any of those hills you live right by.

  • + 6

 There's gonna be an xc loop for you Debbie.
  • + 1
 I can describe in TWO WORDS why this place is gonna have a hard time opening ------- FIRE MARSHAL.

There was an wooden indoor skatepark in P-town before that got closed cuz the F.M. wanted a 75,000 dollar sprinkler system installed......(cuz somebody might drop their doobie while riding , I guess)
  • + 2
 phantom, it hasn't failed skatebarn in seattle yet, nor will it fail lumberyard. the crew in charge is definitely made up of dedicated guys, and wonky, there will be red tape to cut through for sure, but it will be gotten around. Portland needs a place like the lumberyard, and if the matt, will and the in charge have anything to say about it- the place will get built. Some of the same people involved in the NW school of freeride are involved in this project, and they've got some investors lined up- it will get built.

 So where's all the guys who usually show up in these articles saying this is stupid and a waste of space? I sure remember how much they were shitting on Rays parks.
  • + 1
 and look @ ray's- they just opened a 2nd one!
  • + 4
 If you build it we will come!!!! I'm suddenly not so bummed about living in rainy Portland.
  • + 1
 The two outer jump lines featured at 0:23 are literally the exact same thing as the intermediate and expert lines at Rays.... a LOT of other stuff looks extremely similar as well, especially the little skatepark style area. Come on, guys.
  • + 1
 the exact same almost
  • + 1
 awesome, nice to see city officials are allowing somebody to do something rad. unlike Spokane, WA. city officials who are too busy sucking eachothers c#%ks to want to do anything else like let some people open an indoor bike park in any one of the many long time vacant buildings here. guess some cities are just better than others. no wonder mine has the nick name "methlehem."
  • + 2
 VOD O_o will be nice to have one in russia but i guess it is kinda impossible... -_-
  • + 2
