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.
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.
