Riding trails comes with jump maintenance. It sucks having to repair damage that others caused just by yourself. This upcoming Saturday you can help out at the Helm Trails in Helmond as the place needs some fixing after a rough winter. March 17th is also the "official day of the volunteers" in The Netherlands so if you are still searching for something to do, pick the Helm Trails spot. Bring a shovel and join the fun. It just feels good creating a place that can be ridden instantly.
When I got the invitation to go back to my hometown of La Paz, Mexico to receive a key to the city, and better yet, build a dirt park named after me, it felt like an April Fool’s phone call. Little did I know, it was the real deal and a once in a lifetime opportunity! After more than 13 years since my last visit, I was honored to be asked to bring 2 friends – Dalton Campbell and Jake Kinney – to help me design and help build a dirt park plus get a chance to meet and ride with the local kids in the skate parks of La Paz.
On Friday the official opening took place of the 040BMXPARK in Eindhoven, Netherlands. A few pre-sessions had taken place prior to the opening day but from now on the park has regular opening hours and is open to everyone. Pegs allowed. The crew has worked hard and built a few indoor park with the help of the ramps they got donated by the rebeljam. The separate room on the side and the to be finished bowl are two nice extra's for those who make the trip to Strijp-S. It's € 6 Euros to ride and you'll need to bring your helmet. Wearing one is never a bad thing. The foampit might be soft, but if that bike drops on top of your head you'll thank your bucket for it.
During the opening session Monster Energy came over to flip some burgers and to keep everyone full of energy. It was crowded, but not too crowded so everyone got their runs in. It rules to have an indoor BMX park around that is built for and by BMX riders. Many sessions will follow. Find all the info on the new 040BMXPARK website. You can rent the place for private
If an organisation could put together a "Perfect wish day" for you, what would it look like? Would it involve fast cars, limos and BMX? Probably. 10 year old Glen had the day of his life last Tuesday when he got picked up at school. He could choose to have a ride in a Porsche or a limousine because it was going to be HIS day. He opted for the Porsche to go to an exclusive Mercedes dealer where he got a ride in SLR AMG or whatever they're called. From there the trip went to 040BMX park
