New Boise Bike Park Open to the Public
The old Downtown Boise Military Reserve has been transformed into a new bike park: J.A. and Kathryn Albertson Family Foundation Bike Park. Even though the temperatures are low, bike enthusiasts have been visiting the park and enjoying all the different features. According to Go Out Local, the park features "beginner cross country trails around the perimeter of the park, two asphalt pump tracks, one beginner and one advanced, and multiple slopestyle trails ranging from beginner to expert level."
The park is unsupervised so riders are encouraged to wear their helmets and be cautious of their surroundings. It's also suggested that riders watch for the degree of difficulty of each of the trails.
Boise Parks and Recreation is also looking for volunteers to help maintain the park in good condition. If you're willing to help out, a group of volunteers meets up the second Saturday of each month at 9 a.m., "to help with everything from weeds to trail and feature maintenance."
