Earth Ramp Bike Parks is a Vancouver based company run by Luke Fulgham. Luke and his colleagues have been building jumps and wooden parks for the course of 15 years. Insight, creativity, and long-term involvement are what distinguish Earth Ramp Bike Parks. Making dirt jumps is simple. Crafting long lasting quality courses in a timely manner that are ridden and maintained requires passion. We have the skills to make courses flow, that are aesthetically pleasing, and purely exhilarating to ride.

Making jumps, yep that is a torch
Making jumps, yep that is a torch


Earth Ramp Bike Parks employs only passionate riders and no general laborers. The results stemming from a love for the sport are an uncompromised focus on quality and legitimate design that resonate powerfully among participant bodies and remain engaging for many years. From beginner to professional riding capabilities, Earth Ramp Bike Parks takes all disciplines into account, constructing trails that mold to their natural surroundings while sustaining an ergonomic approach.




Soulful engineering, minimal impact, and thoughtful safety precautions are utilized throughout every step of development. Maintaining a trail is by far the most important component of running a consistently effective bike park. Through soil samples, sustainable design, creative conceptual layouts, and efficient execution we take pride in what we build. Earth Ramp Bike Parks’ ultimate goal is to maximize your investment by providing a world class facility that supports long-term participant activity and serves as an industry standard for other cities to follow.

 After reading some of the complaints in an earlier article about the Hoots parks, this looks to remedy all the problems. The computer model shows a good progression (small, medium, large), but potential liability on the gap jumps, and maintenance!

 The jumps a vanier park in vancouver are 90% completed and they are as nice if not nicer than any of the pictures above. The true gaps are only on the 'pro' set and no hack in their right mind would bother trying them as they are large. Earthramps rule! The vanier set will be open in a few weeks

 wow. those jumps are amazing. what does the torch do?
  • 3 0
 when you build jump you soak it and shape it and let it dry out the torch just makes it a quicker process.
  • 1 0
 it´s like curing a ceramic vase in a oven...(the forced heat makes the clay hardening, faster and tougher)
  • 1 0
 Remember, some types of hardpacked soils just crack if theyre drying up too fast. Thats why some use covers for jumps so sun doesn't ruin them.
