Trails generally don't get any better if you don't maintain them. But during the winter months it's hard to ride because of the weather. The Flame Trails are in need of a post winter fix-up and we've picked a date for a jam meaning we'll have to get off our asses to get the dirt place up and running again. And it's coming up quick! Saturday 24 March we'll get together and ride. Nothing more, nothing less. You know the Flame Trails will be up and running and it's simply time to get dirty.
With something there for everyone to ride there's no excuse not to make the trip. It starts at 13:00hr so you can even sleep in. With no particular schedule planned other than ride the pump-track / dirt jumps you won't be stressing out. Street riders, BMX racers, Park rats and Dirt riders, we want to see everyone there. Helmond-Brandevoort train station is a 5 minute pedal away and for those planning on riding 040BMXPARK at night, it's a 15 minute drive to Eindhoven. In short, it's time to plan a BMX trip with the crew.
For those wanting to help dig, you're welcome. Between now and 24 March it's go-time. The more that gets built, the more there will be to ride at the Flame Trails Jam. With light, water, shovels, and music present, fixing up the trails can even become a good time. Dig in.
