Danny Hart's Descend Bike Park shared on Facebook
yesterday that the bike park was robbed of everything there was to take including three generators, two chainsaws, countless other tools, and bike parts.
The bike park, a small operation in the Hamsterley Forest of North East England, has become one of the UK's leading downhill destinations. Unfortunately, the two cabins that stored all the park's bike tools, trail maintenance equipment, and even some cash that the park had been collecting as a donation to the Great North Air Ambulance Service were fully cleaned out. The park asks that anyone in the area watch out for some of the more valuable items that were stolen: a Ford generator, a Honda generator, a Stil battery-powered chainsaw, a Stil petrol chainsaw, a Hyundai auger, and a Clark power washer.
Goggles and even first aid supplies were taken.
A GoFundMe campaign
has been created to help get the park back on its feet. The park will be closed through most of this week but plans to reopen Saturday.
