Logan Peat's Backwoods Jam - This Friday At Coast Gravity Park

Aug 19, 2015
by Coastal Crew  
Coast Gravity Park is excited to host 16 of the worlds top slope style athletes for "The BackWoods Jam" - Open to the public on Friday August 21. Coast-based rider Logan Peat has personally invited these athletes to come ride, following their last major event at Whistler Crankworx, as a way to unwind and chill, and what better place than the Sunshine Coast.
 If you haven't heard of The Backwoods, it's the brainchild of Logan Peat and his desire to build his dream set of jumps. Through out the spring he has been riding and training in the backwoods. Now its your chance to come see it for yourself at Coast Gravity Park and enjoy the show. Lets us know your coming by reserving your spot online. The trails will be closed friday due to the jam but we will remain open for riding all weekend.

The Backwoods Jam

Starting at noon to 4pm, the world’s top riders will be putting on a session for fun on some of the largest jumps ever created. A show that is not to be missed. Coast Gravity Park will be open to the public by donation at 11am. Normally only riders are admitted, but for this select event we will be open to spectators only. The park location is up Dusty Rd. in Sechelt BC, and onto forest service Rd, roughly 6km out of Sechelt. Coast Gravity Park and all the staff from Darren Hemstreet, Dylan Dunkerton, Curtis Robinson and Evan Young the Park Manager, want to share this world class mountain bike destination with you. This all came about between friends who had a dream and a shared common vision.

 What's up with Norbs not having any involvement in the park anymore? It feels like the Coastal Crew only consists of Dyl and Curtis these days?
  • 1 0
 Huh?? Not sure about the park involvement, but they just posted pics of all three of them on their coastal crew profile and there was that chitcolins (prolly butchered that name) backcountry video of all them riding, which was posted like two days ago on here..
