Grab your helmet and bike – Stafford Lake Bike Park to Open August 22

logo

Innovative Facility – First of it’s kind in Marin.

Bring the kids and the adults. There is something for everyone!

The key features of the Phase I bike park include a progression jump course, dual slalom track, and a perimeter trail. Still to come in the next few months are a kids-learn-to-ride area and beginner pump track, though there is hope that both will be finished in time for the opening.

Future park phases, to be built pending further fundraising, would add advanced and intermediate pump tracks, a terrain park, downhill and flow trails, bridge crossings, progression trail with balance features, and a main event plaza.
