Hey, my name is Winston and I live in Tucson, Arizona. I love to ride my bike with friends. We like to ride dirt and we build jumps. But, people with dirt bikes always run them over. And it is really stressful because we put a ton of hard work into building and they just get torn down. Also we used to have a local place behind our Target Greatland store that people built a lot of jumps at but just recently, they got torn down. It is hard to find a safe, fun place to ride our bikes. We think it would be fun to ride at a skate park but, every skate park is for skateboarders only. BMX bikers can't ever ride at any skate park. There are two skate parks that I know of, they are Purple Heart Park and The OTT YMCA skate park but bikers get kicked off or arrested anytime they go there. I think it would be gtreat to build a bmx park on the eastide of Tucson, Arizona. There are tons of great places to build it at near 22nd and Houghton. Please sign my petition. Thank you, Winston, age 13

As a teacher, I have seen many of my students not being engaged in life. Sitting in front of a tv playing video games is not being engaged. Please help support these boys. Forget their poor choice of words. Tucson needs a place where the bikers can ride without worrying about the skaters. My son is now 17. we live outside Chicago, and it was the same thing. Bikes could only be ridden for 2 hours each day. This limited my son and I felt it was disrcrimination.
