Here at BikeTown we couldn’t agree more. We love riding our bikes and want to help as many people as we can love riding their bikes, too.

Change is Good

If you haven't been out to Buck Creek Trails lately, you might notice some changes the next time you go. There has been a lot of work going on!
Several people got out there and made the trails better for everyone.

The first thing you'll notice is the improved parking area. It is wider which will allow for a lot more cars. Also, it's not just dirt anymore. Hopefully, this will help prevent the deep ruts that occur when it rains.

There are also some new burms out on the trail. Have fun trying those out!

But, of all the improvements, this has got to be the most exciting one. There is now a pump track right between the parking area and the trail. It's awesome! Chris Smith planned it out and Grady Johnson, Bob Sanderson, Richard Valdez, Aaron Barr, Gary Fraser, Jim MacDonald, Troy MacDonald, and Trent MacDonald spent several days helping him build it. If you've never tried one, the point is to see if you can make it all the way around without pedaling. It's harder than it looks! Better yet, it's great for adults and kids so the whole family can give it a try.

Thanks so much to everyone who has helped out at the trails. They just keep getting better and better, and it wouldn't happen without everyone pitching in. Thanks!
