McNearney Park/Ponderay Pump Track

Some might not know we have a pump track and mtn bike skills area.  But we do.  It is in Ponderay, right behind the Animal Shelter (turn N. on McNearney Rd).  It was put in last year.

I went out there a couple months ago and was disappointed to see it was heavily over grown with weeds and was obviously not being used.  You could hardly make out there were actually trails from the road.  Damn shame.  So, a few of us went out there with weed whackers, rakes, shovels, beers and bikes.  After a couple fun "work" days spread over the following 2 weeks, we had the park whipped back into shape.  And then a weird thing happened...people started to show up and ride it and do work on their own.  I see people out there almost every day now and things are still looking good.

If you haven't been out there yet, go check it out.  You can ride any bike, trust me I have seen them all out there.  Here are some pics to entice you...
