Construction of Bike Skills Course in Shastice Park

MSTAShasticeBikePark1 On Thursday, May 19th, 2016, volunteers from BikeShasta and the Mount Shasta Trail Association gathered in Shastice Park to construct and place wooden and metal features for a kids’ bike skills course.  About 10 volunteers assisted employees from Progressive Bike Ramps, which manufactured the features.

The new course sits just south of the skate park.  The “ladder bridges” and “skinnys” are designed to teach slow-riding technical and balance skills.  Some additional contouring of the earth between and adjacent to the course will be done in the next few weeks.MSTAShasticeBikePark2MSTAShasticeBikePark3
