Glade Run Recreation Area Gets New Bike Skills Park
Updated: Oct 8
Our bike park ninjas are stoked to be at the Glade Run Recreation Area in New Mexico laying down the foundation for a new bike skills park.
Every great bike park and pump track should be designed to include a range of features that are intended to provide experiences in each ability level, allowing for ideal learning progression and skills building. This often means starting younger kids within a strider-bike environment, then advancing feature difficulty suitable for any ability level, which ensures the terrain is fun and exciting for all ability levels.
The new skills park at Glade Run Recreation Area will feature two distinct riding zones. The first is a beginner skills area featuring low to the ground riding features along with a pump track. The second zone will feature three progressive skills lines with options for beginner, intermediate and advanced riders. Each line will consist of jumps, rollers, berms, and wooden riding features. Each line is designed to allow safe progression to bigger features and allows riders of all abilities to hone their skills.
