These are plans I found last week on the MORE site of two public bike parks, both with skills areas, freeride features, xc singletrack, and pump tracks.
I like the look of this future too. This is the kind of stuff that will keep me riding into old age. And it will be fun riding this stuff with Oliver and his friendz,... until they're old enough to not want the old man hangin' around anymore.....
Ski areas have been into this game with lift-served freeride and downhill parks for some time now. For some reason, I never bit into that scene even though I do like to go downhill. But these kinds of parks intrigue me, a lot. These look like they could be fun for hours at a time, especially if the kid is into it too. Not that I think anything like this will be coming soon to a venue near us, but I like the looks of it all the same.
Now, for yet another kind of future. This is a trail in the 'Shed. This is a 2-mile trail that I could ride back and forth on for 3 hours and be perfectly happy. And perfectly wasted afterwards.
