It's great to see new riding spots pop up. Pump tracks are all the craze but a large asphalted Velosolutions riding spot isn't in every city's budget. Sometimes you have to work with what you're offered and the hard working crew in Oirschot pulled off a new spot next to the public swimming pool in the woods. Daniel Wijsmuller designed and shaped the Kemmertrails and during the opening plenty of people turned up for the first few laps. With a table/double line on the outside and a pump track in the middle it is a sweet spot for anyone on two wheels. Because the top layer isn't made of asphalt, you won't see many scooter kids/skateboarders/inline skaters around. BMX and MTB riders however can enjoy their bikes at the open and free spot in Oirschot, just 10 minutes outside of Eindhoven, NL.
After our successful Art in the Parks project the park is looking better than it ever has thanks to the work of Lamkat and Laura Alvarez. The past seven years has been a great journey as the park transformed and our community grew bringing in new riders of all ages. Thanks to supporters like you we have been able to turn around our space with the help of volunteers, community organizations, bicycle companies, and local politicians who have supported our project. We could not be happier with how this year has gone, and are looking forward to a great 30th year in 2018, with more great events, new additions to the park, and fun for all ages. The park is currently closed Tuesday and Thursday until summer season begins, and the park is free to use as always.
In October 2014 I decided to build a Spine mini ramp for Ireland. My personal favorite type of ramp and there had never been one for public use before. This took just under 3 weeks to build. Big thanks to Fred for his help with getting this finished and working through the night several times to get this done with me & Cheers to Nick Patterson for putting this time-lapse together for me.
Wanted to go check out the XDubai Skatepark in Dubai, but only had a R8 as transport... somehow managed to fit my bike in it. Couldn't ride because I recently had surgery on my shoulder so it's just a little tour around the park....
THIS IS PROJECT #SAVESTONERIDGE Vol.1 - YOU CAN HELP. A skatepark based at the Stoneridge shopping center is due for demolition. The closing of this Skate Park will cause a negative effect on extreme sports in South Africa. Here is a short message from a small number of people that use the park.
