Share Your Opinion: Worldwide Bike Park Survey
Yes. The data will be shared here on Pinkbike (to some extent) and more comprehensively in IMBA's forthcoming book -- Bike Parks: IMBA's Guide to Creating New School Riding Facilities (due out spring 2013). We're currently soliciting the best designers, builders, riders, artisans, city planners and land managers in the business to contribute to this book. We appreciate any and all perspectives, hence the survey, and are grateful to all those who take it. As you can imagine, riders who enjoy bike parks make up a very wide and diverse audience, and the culture is very much still underground in a lot of places, which is why this is a challenge and will be a long process to get it as right as possible. But hey, this is a start.

Truckee Pump Track Project
Professional trail design, consulting and construction aren't cheap, and neither are city permits, but they result in much more durable products and parks that offer something for everyone, not just big hitters or total beginners, have amazing flow and can stand up to some serious beatings from riders and weather. If anything, look at the size of the park: 17,000 sq. feet is pretty big. Dirt alone is very expensive. And I bet the irrigation system wasn't free, either. If you still don't think it's worth it, consider how a city feels about a legitimate, professionally-built bike park compared to a rogue one or something that some kids threw together in a weekend. I'm not knocking the art, but which one do you think a city is going to support and not try to sell out from under the riders?

Truckee Pump Track Project
Awesome! Good to see stuff like this getting some love. Randy Spangler is one of our star trail designers and builders - he works for the International Mountain Bicycling Association (IMBA) Trail Solutions. A lot of people deserve credit for the success of this project. IMBA Pacific Region Director Anna Laxague, working with local riders and the Truckee Donner Recreation and Parks District, utilized a grant from the IMBA Trail Building Fund to have Trail Solutions create the conceptual plan with the goal of providing the area's riders a cutting-edge pump park. The conceptual plan, which illustrated the project's impact and value, was then used to obtain permission and funding. This project is a perfect example of what can be done with educated and motivated locals, an organized grassroots effort and IMBA funding and design expertise. THANK YOU to everyone who was involved! Happy riding!
