There’s good news for cyclists, skateboarders, scooterers, and more on Vancouver Island!
A new paved bike park will be coming to View Royal Park by the end of July, according to the municipality.
The bike park is described as a pump track that loops in a circuit of rollers, berms, and jumps and is designed to require little to no peddling.
Besides bicycles, skateboards and scooters are allowed to use the bike park.
The design of the pump track will follow a ‘B’ shaped concept based off of the recommendations of several volunteers, including the bike park manager, who is a Team BC mountain bike coach as well as a professional bike rider.
A blueprint of the design is below:
Creation of the bike park was cleared after the township collected the feedback of 435 residents over one year, with the majority of responses approving of the track.
Construction of the pump track began last Wednesday, and is expected to complete sometime in late July at an approximate cost of $150,000.
