I check out the Golden Bike Park a week ago. It’s pretty cool. I was definitely a little in over my head. The jumps and such were pretty big. After riding around for 20 minutes trying to find the bike park, I met two teenagers at the top who were way better than me.After 4 or 5 runs I was getting a lot better, but still far from flying through the air.
One of the cool parts was the pump track. A pump track is a circular track that’s setup so that instead of pedaling, you pump your bike up and down, by throwing your weight around, to keep your momentum. I really liked it.
There were some small little jumps that were alright, but the big jumps were a lot more fun. I think I’m a little too used to bunny hopping curbs and such, and not speeding over a real jump. Either way it was a lot of fun. It’s cool that there’s a place like that so close by.
