May Photos

It is fun to be up at the park and see all of the young rippers. Fun place too, because everyone is always friends. You see a dude on a bike at the park, it is likey that you are going to have some common interests. So, here are a few pictures from earlier this week.

Apologies to Darrin and Coug, the camera was at the bottom of the hill when five guys took the drop all in line…

The New Teeter-Totter

May 14, 2009

Just got back from the Mountain Ranch Bike Park where the new teeter-totter was built. Kalin Norman was the first to try out the new feature. Come on out on Saturday and do some building and try out the new features. As an extra incentive, tickets for the bike frame raffle, and other parts and tools too.

The Downhill Trails

May 12, 2009

So, as I alluded to in the forum, and a few of you on the hill, I have been dying to find the elusive trails that lie in the hills above Eagle Mountain. I have driven the Jeep all over the place looking for ladders, bridges, drops, and jumps that would be hiding in the junipers. Heck, I even resorted to using Google Maps to search the hillsides looking for single track.

So, I was excited the other day to almost stumble onto the trail. I even shot some video too…

Digging Opportunities

May 9, 2009

Wanted to get a quick post up about some digging opprtunites that are coming up, as well as a reason to show up…

  • Thursday Night 6-8pm. Some people haven’t been able to make it to Sautrday digs, so Thursday night should be open to everyone. It you can make it, come down, bring a drink, and let’s get some stuff built. The teeter-totter has a foundation now, and could probably be finished. Who wants to ride it first?
  • Saturday Mornings 9-12. More of the same, but a great time to get out of chores at the house, and build something cool. Make sure to bring water, it is going to be getting warm.

Now, in addiotion to building some cool freature at an amaxing park that you can play on, the reason to build has gotten even better. Giant Bicycles and Epic Biking have put together a raffle for all of those people that have helped in the building of the bike park. And what are the prizes you ask? How about a brand new Giant dirt jumping frame!
In addition to the frame, there will be tools, parts, and lots of other goodies to be handed out, but there is one small catch. You have to be around on May 30th, at the grand opening to collect. The more often you come and dig at the park, there more likely you are to win. So, why not come Thursday and Saturday!
