The Salt Spring Lions Commemorative Bike Park was opened to the public on August 6th with a ribbon cutting and community celebrations that included a prize draw for new bikes, professional bike trials demonstration and food served by the Salt Spring Lions Club.
The bike park is designed to facilitate skills development and cycling opportunities for new and young cyclists. The design consists of three main trail loops, one for beginners, one requiring more advanced balancing skills and an outer loop for intermediate riders. Each trail loop contains a variety of skills features that are challenging and fun for riders of varying skills levels, such as table tops, berms and wooden roller coasters.
Extensive understorey restoration and split rail fencing to define boundaries is expected to be completed during the fall.
The skills trails were enjoyed by many families and look to be a destination for enjoyable recreation on Salt Spring for years to come.
We’re incredibly pleased to have been part of this awesome project!
