What To Expect - Riders
If this is your first visit to the park, make sure to read through the website. There are many answers to your questions on the pages of the site. If you still have questions, PLEASE call the park during normal business hours and speak to an employee. You might have friends that have been here but may not know the exact rules and policies. Go straight to the source and get the facts before your visit.
If you have a bike, bring it. We do offer rental bikes for your visit for a charge, but if it’s your first time, it is always best that you are comfortable on your own bike. Our rental bikes are specifically designed and built for the park and it’s features.
Helmets are mandatory. The best bet is to bring one from home or visit the local bike shop and get one that fits well. If you don’t have one, the park will lend you one for free with paid admission. The most important piece of protection is your helmet. Don’t try to save money on safety equipment, it may save you from injury. Knee and elbow pads are available at no cost and are strongly suggested.
Wear flat sole shoes. Ones that have a flexible sole is best but not required. This enables your foot to remain on the pedal while maneuvering through some of the terrain. We would not suggest dress shoes, work boots, sandals or any open toe shoe.
Long pants and long sleeve shirt is recommended but not mandatory. You will warm up very quickly so wear some layers. Typically you will end up wearing a t-shirt and jeans when you are riding. Bring a sweatshirt to put on while you are resting. The temperature is a bit cool inside.
Bring an assortment of basic tools. Make up a basic bag with tools: Screwdriver, tubes, tire levers, multi-tool, sockets, ratchets, adjustable wrench, pliers, chain tool. The courses in the park can rattle some parts loose on your bike. We are not a full service bike shop and do not have full-time mechanics. We only stock emergency items and boutique upgrade parts in our shop. The chances of having a specific part for your bike is slim. We will help you in any way to remedy the situation. But if the bike comes behind the counter for our employees to work on, there will be a service fee.
There are several different levels of riding difficulty. From the very beginner rider to the advanced professional, we have it all. There are directional trails that are flat and easy with a mix of natural features. Most of the features in the novice section have options to go around. There is nothing wrong with walking your bike. If you feel that the obstacle is too advanced, simply dismount and walk the bike to where you feel safe to ride. Just a couple of laps and you will feel comfortable enough to tackle some of the more difficult features.
The sections are clearly marked as to where you are and if you should be there. We will be happy to show you around. If you are lost, that’s good, now you are on an adventure!
It is recommended to take a lesson from one of our staff. They are all riders and will show how to be comfortable riding indoors.
You will find people of all ages and abilities riding at the park. We have a very unique atmosphere and everyone is after the same goal. Have fun and leave in one piece. There is plenty of support from other riders and the staff. If you have any concerns with the park or its features, ask the front desk, they are there to help you!
