Build a Bike Park in Spearfish
I support the non-profit organization Spearfish Bike Skills Park and their interest in building a bike park in Spearfish.
Skills parks provide an entry point for new cyclist to gain ability and confidence. And for riders of all levels to push themselves and have a great time.
Being in a relatively small area with a variety of terrain and features this park will allow riders of all levels to be together; families & friends of all ages & abilities.
The park will be a place for kids to safely get outside and enjoy a physical activity that is a life-time sport. Kids that are physically and aerobically active tend to stay that way and lead healthier lives as adults.
The park will be an entry point for residents who would like to make positive changes in their health.
Bike parks add dollars to the local economy by growing the sport and encouraging tourism.
This park will be a gateway to the great riding that is available in the Black Hills and what the sport of mountain biking has to offer.
